Ratings and Reviews
Started off great...
I really liked using this app at first. I liked the chat feature and the service I got was good. However, every time I ordered a cab and choose a provider, the cab driver would always try and grill me about why I booked through minicabit and not directly through them. Regardless of the provider, I got the same talk. It made me think that perhaps MiniCabit doesn’t have a good business relation with the cab providers it works with.
Today I booked a cab, paid for it and got my confirmation. I later received an email and text telling my my provider had been changed. Then I got another message. When my cab never came, I called the provider (contact details provided my MiniCabit via sms). The provider did not know about my booking. I then immediately contacted MiniCabit via chat in their app. I was given a new contact number for a new provider and told that provider had my booking. Called the number, and they didn’t know about my booking.
Happens once, I can put it down to human error. But, happens again after I complained, this is totally understandable. Time to delete the app (once I get my refund).
Addition to the above. On chat with the company via app, told to wait while they process my refund. Now I get a message stating my session has been closed. OMG! This is more stress than I need. Wish I could award it as zero stars.
We are sorry to hear that your experience with the cab operators you had selected was unsatisfactory.
This is uncharacteristic to the level of service the providers usually offer.
We apologise for the inconvenience you were caused, please refer to your email for further details about your refund.

Do Not Download - No Actual Live Person Supporting on Weekends
(1) App does not let you see your upcoming bookings or any option to modify it.
(2) Live Chat does not exist - No agents available on weekends or nights. No phone support. No one responds to emails.
(3) They Charge about 20-25 % more than booking direct. Arrow Taxi charges £85 for booking direct to Worthing from Heathrow. MiniCabit charges £105. Starlite Cars charge £80 and MiniCabit charges £100.
You would think for that extra markup that they charge their customers, they would have the decency to actually have customer service but no. No email, no live chat, no phone.
(4) Taxi Operators also know that they can pass the blame to MiniCabIt so they just are rude to the customers, cancel when they want to, and say file a complaint to minicabit - like Starlite Cars in London.
No need to download the app if there is nothing value added here. Just go direct to Taxi Operators - or better yet - if you are not in a rush - take the train. Avoid Cabs in the UK. They are not regulated.
I was looking for a place to submit complaints for Taxi Operators - there is none. That is why they can be rude to customers.
We're sorry to hear you had trouble with the app.
This has been reported and fixed in the meantime and we appreciate the feedback, this has been taken into consideration.
Please note that the cab operators set the prices, we simply display them for the trip you are searching.
Should you require any assistance, our Livechat service operates 24/7, our agents are more than happy to help.

I didn’t book through the app.. but the service I have received was over and above impressive. I got notification on booking both on app and sms. I got notification of who my designated driver is with a picture. My driver was friendly and early. He assisted me with my luggage both at the house and even went to far as to run off and bring me back a trolley. I have had nothing but professional service from Minicabit. Thank you
Thanks for you 5 star review of minicabit.

We hope to see you again very soon book with minicabit
