London has the reputation of being the most expensive city ​​to use this means of transport. And is that taking one of these classic and spacious taxis is a rather "luxurious" expense and opens a major crack in the tourist's wallet. The London taxi is known as "black cab" because of its black color, although they can also be of other colors. It has 5 seats for passengers and they are very high to facilitate the entry and exit of passengers. In total there are about 20,000 taxis running every day. This means of transport is the most expensive in London, but it is very useful when you carry luggage and want to save the trouble of taking a bus that takes you to the right destination.

Rates vary depending on the day of the week, the time slot and holidays and some additional supplements also apply. source Southend Airport Transfer
