A minicab is a type of private hire vehicle. Usually it must be licensed by local authorities, but from the outside it may look like an ordinary unmarked car. Most minicab companies are safe and reliable, but you should be careful. A minicab must be booked in advance. You can order a minicab by telephone, or from outside the company’s office. A minicab driver is not allowed to pick up customers directly from the road: if you do travel in a minicab that has not been booked you will not be covered by the vehicle’s insurance, and you may be putting yourself at personal risk. If the vehicle doesn’t have a meter inside you should make sure that the fare has been agreed before starting the journey.
