Survey - World's Best Taxis

London taxis have been voted the best taxis in the world for the sixth year in a row, according to the annual global taxi survey from Hotels.com. London secured 22% of the votes, a clear runaway winner followed by New York with 10% and Tokyo with 9%.

The global Hotels.com taxi survey also revealed the world's more obscure objects that travelers have admitted to leaving behind, which included:

~ A wig and a bird in a cage left behind in a US cab
~ A prosthetic leg and an ex-boyfriend in Australia
~ A trombone in Finland
~ A Rubik's cube in Italy
~ Dentures in Germany
Globally the survey found that people tend to text or email whilst in cab (19%), while sleeping was the second most popular activity (15%), followed by eating (10%) and kissing (9%). When asked which nation was the most amorous in the back of a cab, Brits came out with 14% admitting to displaying passionate behavior- 10% higher than the global average of 4%. According to the survey, 48.5% of Indian respondents wanted a newspaper and music in the cab.

Other global findings include:
~ Over half of us (53%) would choose a taxi as our desired mode of transport from airport to hotel.
~ The majority of people tend to not tip more than 10% for the journey.
~ The most important feature in a taxi is WiFi (14%) beating both the radio and music.
~ The pet peeve for UK travelers is when taxi drivers take a longer route to the destination.
