Taxis in London
Five-person taxis (a.k.a. large, rounded black cabs) are available, but you’ll need deep pockets to hail one on the street or at a taxi stand; base fares are around $6, so even a short, two-mile hop can cost $20. For longer hauls, expect a fare of around $80-$120 depending on traffic. You’ll pay about one-third more after 8 p.m. To tip, round up to the nearest pound.
