I live about 25 minutes from Heathrow and was told the fare was £140 when I got into the cab at 11:00 at night on a Wednesday evening.
I found this offensive, to be honest. But what choice did I have.
Spoke with a friend who lives in Binfield ( 20 minutes if you take route through Windsor ) and he was in the same situ when he flew back from ibza and was forces to pay £130.
major cities I've been to in the last couple years seem to charge less then 1/2 of this for these types of journeys from Airports.
*Local cab companies charge £40 for these same journeys.
I read another blog on this site where dozens of people came out to vehemently defend Black Cabs (perhaps they were all cabbies)
What gives? Is this Rip-off Brittain in full force?
