Why choose Hailo?
Setting your travel or pickup location is a breeze:
We integrate with Foursquare and we remember your frequently used locations.
Ireland - Whether in a classic taxi or a luxury car, it’s easy to choose how you want to roll.
London - Choose from either a classic black cab or a six seater Mercedes Vito.
Never again agree to pay for a fare without knowing about how much it will cost. To use our fare quote feature, enter your travel destination, and we’ll give you an estimate of how much your journey will cost. Then all you do is book!
An easy way to pay:
No more fussing with paying for your taxi. Enter your card in our app and we’ll safely and securely keep it stored. Add multiple cards if you want, and you can switch between them for any trip. For those that must, don’t worry as you can still pay with cash, for those on business it’s a plus!
You can now use Apple Pay to pay for your journeys. Simply select Apple Pay as your payment option when hailing your next ride. (Available in London only).
Getting a Hailo Car in is now as simple as checking the time. Hailo for Apple Watch lets you book a taxi and track its progress as it heads to you. See driver details, adjust your tip onboard and rate the driver at the end of your journey.
Trip History and Receipts:
Handy dandy receipts are kept in your history for those on business, and we’ll also email you a copy at the end of your hectic trip around London.
Recover lost items:
One day we left our wallet in the back of a cab and it made for a pretty bad day. So we built a feature that allows Hailo passengers to recover their lost property easily.
Need a wheelchair accessible taxi? No problem, flip the accessibility switch on, book and we’ll only send accessible vehicles. Easy Peasy!
Twitter & Facebook integration:
This is major because if you don’t tweet or post about your journey, how do people know it actually happened? Did it actually happen?

The App to end all Apps
Having booked about 500 cabs with Hailo since November 2011 (my legs got crushed by a car, hence the need for taxis), I am a very satisfied customer. The service has noticeably improved in terms of the speed and reliability of getting cabs—I believe that there are now over 14,000 drivers. The area covered seems to have improved as well.
Advance booking is here!
Apart from the slick, easy to use nature of the app, which I like to think Steve Jobs would have approved of, I particularly appreciate the automatic emailing of receipts—very handy for expenses.
My limited experience of booking minicabs was that they were either more expensive (booking charges) for central London or didn't turn up. Just the meter fare (+ optional tip) for Hailo.
The attention to detail in this app is awesome: little things, like the up to five minute’s waiting time before starting the meter, to behind-the-scenes things such as the clever algorithms which determine where the demand for cabs is.
Tip for the disabled/hard of walking: the passenger side drop-seat swings out—ask the driver to release the seat—which makes it easier to get in. Not on some older models or the six-seaters.
I use this app because I want to support the London cab drivers who I think are an integral part of the city. I find it outrageous however that this app charge is a £10 minimum fee when the whole point of a tab is that the cost depends on journey. I contacted Hailo about the matter and they told me that they charge a minimum fee because the cabdriver might be missing out on other better jobs by taking on yours. However the app has the functionality to give your destination so in that case the cab driver knows exactly how big the journey will be and he can decide whether he wants to take it or not. I am happy to pay premium to use black cabs as opposed to Uber or anything else but this is a step too far. I will be using Uber for shorter journeys and looking for a black cab apps that do not fleece you for short trips.
Best value and on time
Hailo is the quickest way around London using a fast black taxi, I used uber for a while and even though it's cheaper it was costing me time, Addison Lee you can pre book but you can do that on hailo now, gett the drivers never accepted for some reason. karhoo you have to phone the company.
