On the road only "black taxis" may be called. All 3 taxi operators, I think, have a telephone application that tends to book very successfully when it comes to rush hour bookings - City Taxi, Commission Taxi and Centrale Taxi. You can book your London taxi in advance by phone/app, or you can greet your taxi in the streets (yellow taxi signs illuminated) or from a rank (Q).
Rental cars (Mini-Cabs, which are normal limousine cars) can only be reserved in advance. Every privat driven car, which takes a rental car outside the road, offends against the law, if you are in this position and afterwards get caught in an crash, you are without Paddel legal up the stream!
You know the Black Hackney taxi apple-track? They are all dependable, all Edinburgh taxi fares are the same as those charged by the City of Edinburgh Council. There' s a large taxi stand at the top of Blackfriars Street, which is open 24-7. You just might have difficulty to find a taxi after 11:00 a.m. on the weekend.
These 3 enterprises operate wireless communication networks, taxi's will adapt to one of them, some taxi's will not! If you call one on the road or climb one in a rank, it doesn't really make any difference to you who they're aimed at. Exciting read Alan, but I suppose it's a case of "talking how you find"...you've tried other businesses and periodic taxi services over the past five years, but always go back to capital and find them cheaper and most dependable!
Edinburgh Taxi and P.H.C. company tariffs for using a counter are the same, determined by the City of Edinburgh Council and posted now. P.H.C. can offer a rebate and if you ask, you can actually get it, but as far as the measured prices are concerned, they are exactly the same.
