    Only someone from your area could tell you that.

    also could depend on the time of day you go.


    Why not ring up a company and ask for a quote?

    You are better off phoning to ask. The prices that some of them charge are ridiculous- my boyfriend got a taxi the other night at 8pm, he only needed to travel 2 miles- and they charged him £8: complete rip off.

    20-25 minutes to go 5 miles? For a 5 mile run here we are about £6 but our taxis are ridiculously cheap.

    Yes, £8!! (that doesnt include a tip either!!) I was quite shocked when he told me, I was expecting it to cost about £3-4, as whenever Id got one that distance in the past, thats how much it had cost.

    Well then I certainly don't know the answer. Metered taxis charge very different prices across the country. Ring up a couple of companies for quotes, telling them the time you'd be travelling and ask if they pick up from the taxi rank.

    Yeah, I reckon it'll be expensive.

    Would it really take 20/25 minutes to go 4 or 5 miles though? That's about how long the cab from Ealing to Camberwell took, and that's through London. And a lot more than four or five miles, I'm sure...
