Don’t use it
Horrible horrible horrible, if you can stick to Uber, then do.
I was introduced to this via a friend so I got a credit of £15. I was trying to use the money multiple times but it was an absolute disaster everytime I tried to. Once I had to take someone to the airport and we were really tight with time, the app kept on cancelling and ‘updating’ the rides, in the end we ended up running to the convenient place with two suitcases! After having this experience, I never even tried to book a cab when I was in rush. And even if I wasn’t, it was impossible to book a ride, I have tons of text messages saying they had to cancel, update or do whatever else with my ride.
I still had some money left which I wanted to use but it’s too much effort to even start using this app because it all ends up in using your nerve cells for no reasons. And I feel sorry for the drivers cause once I was told my driver was 2min away, I waited for 10min, called him and he said that he was told the trip was cancelled. I really don’t know how this is supposed to work, but it DOESN’T.
This is the last time I’m using this app and after a LONG hassle, I finally actually got a car and the driver is really nice. I had this app for a few months and he is the first highlight in my experience.
Honestly, if you can avoid using ViaVan, then please do. Uber is a million and one time more convenient and worst case, get a black cab or Adison Lee.
App is OK, service is quite like UBER
Used this app and service for the first time today. App worked fine — pretty much like the UBER app, but not as many bells and whistles. Sad to say that no fancy Mercedes van turned up — instead it was just an UBER driver in a BMW car! He had signed up to this app and turned off his UBER app. It was his first time with a ViaVan passenger. Strangely, the app does not give him or me directions. Also, as stated, they pick you up and drop you off only *near* to your locations; and of course it’s fundamentally a service that focus on *shared* rides (like UBER Pool). Not sure how well that will work in London UK, esp. since the UBER drivers say UBER pool is unpopular with both drivers and passengers. In my ride we did not pick anyone up, and the price was just £3 for a journey that on regular UBER would have been £9 or so. What’s not to like?
Stick with uber
Me and my sister used this app to get to the airport and it was alright. You have to walk to a designated spot so the driver can pick you up en route, which is a bit annoying when you have two massive suitcases. The time kept going up as well but don't think we waited longer than 10 mins. Our return was a totally different story.
I ordered one from outside Victoria. Firstly the time just kept going up and up. Drivers kept cancelling and in the end it was about 20 minutes after we'd first ordered it. He then pulled up, looked at our suitcases and shook his head saying no. Then drove off. Without even stopping, winding down his window to explain, nothing. What sort of taxi service can't fit suitcases in the boot? We then booked an uber which was there in 3 minutes.
Honestly, I have free credit still on my account but it's so bad I can't be arsed wasting my time using it. Oh and there's no customer service. So I can't even let them know of this abysmal service.
