If I take a London taxi from the airport it will cost an arm & a leg, but if I arrange pick up by Windsor taxi it is very reasonable. I'm guessing it's the same for Dover taxi and a good choice especially for couples with bags that would prefer the convenience.
Actually, it was the Dover taxi I was quoting at $200. MUCH higher than taking the train. Don't know what any of the non-metered taxis would be. We just took the train and found it comfortable, quick, and easy.
