Minimum you gotta remove the front.

I transported with my car boot before.

boot cannot be closed.. the cab driver have to secure it with bicycle hook. therefore, a bit of the rear wheel will be sticking out, but other than that, it should be secured.
tip: hide your bike before flagging the cab because many of them will not stop for you when they see your bike!
