Note: Please bear in mind that this is a discussion board, not a place to advertise childcare vacancies or recruit childminders/nannies etc. We don't mind the odd mumsnet regular mentioning that they're looking for a job/mindee (although you're probably better off in MN Local) but repeated job "ads" and posts from nanny/babysitting agencies aren't fair to people who are paying for small business ads. Do feel free to report any you see. Thanks, MNHQ.

Taxi for London babysitters

We drop ours home if we get back past 10 (she lives 10mins away) and would give her taxi money if we couldn't. We do live further out though and streets are pretty deserted at that time.

Yes.
I think most people wouldn't feel happy asking a youngish female adult to catch the tube/nightbus alone at midnight after babysitting.

However, it would add around £10/£12 to the cost of a night out.

I babysit in central London and always take my car, or I wouldn't do it.

Is there a general rule of thumb for when you should give money to babysitters for a taxi? We live in London near good public transport and our babysitters are always adults. Is there a time (11:30/midnight) when it is expected or always? Thanks
