With the demise of Uber in London on the horizon, commuters and tourists will be looking for a different solution. We recently rounded up some of the available taxi alternatives – now we can reveal which services are most popular.

We noted Addison Lee as a premium alternative, with a reputation for higher pricing and a more corporate customer base. It has more than twice the online traffic of the second-placed taxi provider.

In second is Blablacar, with 56,550 searches per month on average, while Viavan follows in third with 30,540. In fourth is long-standing Gett, with 13,780 country-wide searches.
