Starting in October, a London cab in special livery has been driving around the streets of London, offering its passengers the chance to win a free skiing holiday in London.

Hosted by British Olympic champion skier Graham Bell, a video tells the story of the taxi.

The next excursion of the taxi in London will be from 8am until 1pm on October 27.  Passengers get to ride for free, and everyone who answers a quiz question correctly will go into a draw for the holiday of a lifetime.

On 13th; 20th and 27th October 2014, between 8 am and 1 pm, anyone who makes a journey with the Austrian Taxi Quiz will be in for a treat. First of all: Your ride will be on Austria!
