    Uber or Addison Lee? Or are they both quite similar prices? I'm used to going with Addison Lee but I know quite a few people go with Uber and I'm not sure if it's because it's cheaper?

    Addison Lee is muuuuch more expensive than Uber! That is no doubt! With Uber I got from central London to Heathow for 35 pounds and it was 80 with Addison Lee. In fact I used Addison Lee quite a lot, as the service was and is still great! I never had conflicts with drivers. But when Uber launched, I shifted towards it! If you are price sensitive then Uber is the first choice for sure.
    However, one issue with the Uber is that only advance payments by credit cards from the mobile app are accepted. I used to have a problem with the App, so I couldn't order a car! Make sure in advance that mobile application is properly working, especially if you need a car urgently!

    No, I totally agree that Addison Lee drivers are better! I mentioned before that they provide a good service. Furthermore, I guess that Uber drivers are like robots, not humans tbh!=)
    But, as I understood, the author of the post wanted to know which company is cheaper.
    Spurs9393, do you agree that Addison Lee is more expensive than Uber?

    Uber are cheaper than Addison Lee. However, I only rarely get taxis so I use AL when I do:

    - Their drivers know where they're going
    - Their drivers definitely have insurance
    - The above gives me more peace of mind.

    If I was having to use taxis daily or to cove large distances I'd probably use Uber out of necessity.
