TOM HUTLEY: How to deliver the perfect taxi hail and where you can find a black cab in London

Popular London taxi driver and YouTube Creator Tom Hutley has published a video running through the perfect ways to hail a taxi driver in the capital.

Hutley, a London taxi driver and successful YouTuber with nearly 75,000 subscribers, shared the handy tips which included how to deliver a strong clear hail, and the benefits of approaching a cabbie's window before getting into the black cab.

According to YourLondonTaxi.com there are three main places the public will find a cab. These include:


HAIL A CAB

Look for the orange 'TAXI' light on the roof of a cab. If the light is on, the taxi is available to hire.


Hail it down by looking at the taxi and raising your hand to grab the driver's attention. If possible, wait away from busy junctions and zig-zag road markings if you can.


Tom Hutley gives some top tips around where to hail a taxi that will allow cabbies to set down safely.


USE A TAXI RANK

There are hundreds of taxi ranks outside key London locations. These include train stations, theatres, hotels and more.

Simply go to the first taxi at 'point' (that's the first cab to you and I) and tell the driver your desired destination.


USE A TAXI HAILING APP

Did you know the London taxi industry had a hailing app before any minicab operator in the capital?


There are several options to choose from. Download your chosen app and hail your taxi!
