London cab question

Jump to last reply

Since I normally take the tube or walk, I'm not real cab savvy in London. Is there a minimum distance /fare for which a London cab will accept a passenger - especially on Christmas Eve? The reason I ask is I've seen Paris taxis refuse to take fares that they didn't deem far enough (to get a big tip, I'm sure) on the last shopping day or two at Christmas.

Secondly, is there a good chance I could hail a cab outside of most tube stations?

I will not be in a major shopping area, more residential if that makes a difference. Thanks in advance for any info and advice you have.
