Ratings and Reviews
After walking to some distant shops where I live (45 mins) I decided to call a taxi instead of carrying the bags back. The app told me the driver would be there to pick me up in 5 mins. So around 20 mins later the car on the app finally begins to drive towards me but my phone charge is beginning to run low as I keep on checking. I then received a call off the driver but my phone froze and turned off before I could press answer so I went looking for the taxi at the Tesco entrance. About 30 seconds later the car pulled up and I signalled him down only to see him frowning at me like he wasn’t expecting me, I asked if this was for me and his reply was that I didn’t pick up the phone so he answered another job. I told him my phone died and he replied I’ll have to call another, WITHOUT A PHONE. So I ended up having to walk home which I could’ve done 20 mins before. Stupid punishment for such a simple accident, couldn’t be bothered to wait 2 mins to see if I was there even though he pulled up anyway!?
App doesn’t work, neither do the staff
I rarely get a Budget taxi, even though they always come on time, good service, good price. Why? 1. The app doesn’t work. I’ve tried to enter my card details countless times and the app says they’re invalid (Uber seems to take my money fine). 2. They don’t give a crap about their customers - there’s no support team for the app and although I’ve told them at the office many tines of my issue they can’t be bothered to get back to me and sort it out.
Taxis 10, app and support NIL
