"Cab" is common in the USA. I do not know about England. Cab and taxi are used interchangeably.
In my post, however, I was trying to draw your attention to the sentence structure.
"Can I arrange a taxi for you?"
"May I call a cab for you?" = "May" is used to show courtesy. "Arrange:" sounds a little odd. I associate "arrange" with something complicated, like getting you a date with a movie star, setting up a seven country tour of Europe. There is nothing complicated about telephoning for a taxi.
