Better to call
I used the app to book a car to take me and the family to the airport. I checked the pictures and selected a car that had icons that represented 4 people and 4 cases.
5 mins before my booked time I got the message they were sending a Prius. Not big enough! I called and they cancelled the booking and left me without a car and less than an hour to get to the airport. In the end I took my own car and used the priority parking at the airport. It actually cost less than the cab both ways.
So, poor service interface between app and booking. I suspect it would be fine if you need a cab to take 1 or 2 people from A to B but not worth the risk if you need to be specific and time is critical I would not recommend you use this app.
Very Poor service around Christmas
They cancel cash bookings, with last minute ( literally) notice over nov to jan. account customers take priority even over bookings made earlier in the day or weeks before. This has now happened to me twice, once at 2am with 15 min notice on a very cold night.
Whats also very very annoying is when booked for a specific time, they literally always turn up about 20 min to half an hour early and send you a text say if you don't turn up in 10 minutes they are leaving! They do it every time so I suppose you could just book one 20min after you need it.
I now use keen, they are cheaper not a minimum of £11 and basically a bit more reliable and possibly a bit nicer.
Not recomended at all! They charge you extra fees on your credit card afterwards
It is too expensive and on top of that they charge you extra fees on your credit card one or two days later. Customer service take more than one week to come back to you when you have a query/complain, and they email you back with an standard automatic email that doesnt add any value at all at your query. Not recomended at all!! Use Uber, it's faster, cheaper and customer service works perfecty, having a reply the same day always.
