People in older generations may find it difficult to get to grip with the major advances in technology, because just a few decades ago there were not even computers in schools. Only the wealthiest families had them, and I.T was a fairly new concept. These days, children spend more time on computers and smart phones than they do socialising outdoors! For anyone born in the 21st century, the Internet is the first place to look for any goods or services. To travel across town, all they'd need to do is type ‘book taxi online' into any search engine, and they could have a car on the way within minutes. Although this may sound complicated at first, it's actually remarkably simple; web designers have created systems with great usability to make booking easy for anyone, regardless of their experience in computers.
To book a London taxi online, all you need to do is go to an online taxi provider's website. If you don't already know one, just type it into a search engine such as Google or Yahoo; you'll see a few suggestions of companies who enable you to book online. Just select a site, and you'll see boxes to type in your pick up address and drop off destination. There's usually a button here that says ‘search', ‘find' or ‘go', which will look up addresses from a postcode or a place of interest. You'll immediately see a full quotation, along with details of the journey distance and estimated time it will take. If you're happy, click ‘book' and fill in your contact information. It's as simple as that! By typing this information instead of relaying it over the phone, you rule out the chance of mistakes being made due to mishearing or misunderstanding. To let you know your booking has been confirmed, you'll received a text message or a call from the London taxi provider.
