London: Travel by Addison Lee Taxis
Sometimes (most of the time), London is so bloody freezing that in spite of your immense poverty, you simply cannot walk to a tube station or wait outside in the elements for a bus. It is times like these that you need Addison Lee. Unfortunately, Addison Lee is not a person who will ferry you around for free, but it’s a cheap as chips taxi company with exquisite service that you order online – typing in your starting point and end destination beforehand so that you know the exact cost. The cars are black and misleadingly posh-looking, and if you ask nicely, some will even let you smoke inside them. To order a cab, simply use the company’s website, and if you’re really lazy and have somehow managed to acquire a smart phone, you can even download an app. There’s really no other way to travel.
