What is the difference between a taxi and us
London is a metropolis rich in history and culture, and one of its symbols is London's taxi, often referred to as the "Black Cab." These iconic black vehicles symbolize London, much like the Queen and Big Ben. In this article, we will explore the differences between London's taxi service and the services provided by our company, as well as the principles on which drivers operate in these two types of transportation.
There are two main types of personal transportation: taxis and "Private Hire." The main difference is that taxis can pick up passengers on the street without prior booking, while our drivers only work with advance reservations. The use of the word "taxi" in advertising or positioning such services is prohibited for online ride-hailing applications. Only "Black cabs" can use it.
Private Hire drivers also undergo training and exams, but the requirements for their knowledge of the city and language are less stringent than those for London's taxi drivers. This is often a more affordable option for transportation.
An essential aspect of our company is the provision of Chauffeur service. Chauffeur drivers are professionals with outstanding knowledge of London. Their dress style and quality of service are unmatched by other similar companies.
Each type of transportation serves its purpose and caters to different passenger needs.
