Terms & Policies

The London Minicab Service is a PCO licensed private hire operator, providing a safe, reliable and punctual service to all major airports, stations and all other destinations within the UK.

The London Minicab Service operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The London Minicab Service prices are based on passengers being ready to travel at the agreed time of pick up when the booking is placed. Quotations for all other destinations (outside of the London area) require contacting the office by email/telephone at least four hours before the journey commences.

All airport collections will have a surcharge of £10.00 to cover 45 minutes waiting time from the actual landing time, thereafter you will be charged 25 pence per minute or £15 per hour. There is no additional charge for flight delays. The £10.00 surcharge also covers any car park fees incurred within the 45 minutes waiting. Passengers that  cannot be located or contacted after 1 hour and 30 minutes will result in the job being cancelled and the full fare being charged via Debit/Credit Card.

All other pickups other than airport collections (residential / business address) waiting time is free for the first 5 minutes; thereafter 25p per minute will apply on the entire waiting time.

Fares are quoted at a flat rate. Any diversions; additional pickups or set downs by passengers will be charged a minimum of £5 per diversion.

The London Minicab Service reserves the right for any driver the right to refuse any passengers having excess luggage which would result in the vehicle being unsafe whilst in motion. This can also cause delay in organising the appropriate vehicle and an extra charge for a larger vehicle.

Neither The London Minicab Service or any drivers will accept any responsibility for loss or damage to any luggage or property carried in their vehicles, irrespective of the manner in which the loss / damage is sustained.


The London Minicab service requires at least 3 hours notice before pick up time on all jobs quoted above £30. Cancellations not informed up to 2 hours before pick up time will be charged at the full rate. Prices are liable to change without prior notice.
