Ratings and Reviews
Unusual activity on card
I recently recommended someone to use taxify, they get a R150 discount voucher and I get a R250 discount voucher. When I requested a ride using the credit card option, the driver arrived and when I was inside the vehicle he asked how I will be paying. When I told him I will be using the cr card he said I must get off as he only accepts cash. I then reported the driver for misconduct on the app for misconduct and was told the matter will be investigated and disciplinary action will be taken against the driver. First of all how can the driver claim to know what method of payment I had chosen before he got to me? Did I mention that he cancelled trip claiming I “did not show”? Since lodging a complaint against the driver I’m not able to use the app with my credit card as it says “unusual activity” when I inquired, I was informed to take a picture if my government issued ID with a selfie (one image) and my matter will be investigated. When I asked if that’s even legal, I haven’t gotten a response 15 hours later! Personally I think this is a way of taxify trying not to go out their vouchers, if that’s the case then taxify is running a scam and should be reported to all relevant authorities! Very disappointing
Pretty Good Start
Looks like a pretty good start. I would like to see family sharing added to the app. So when one of my kids hails a ride, I get a notification & can track them through the app.
I had 2 of my kids install the app. Since there is no family sharing facility, I added my credit card info to their apps. Each of them get a voucher for their first ride. When they do use it the first time, I receive a voucher for an additional ride. However, in using this feature, they blocked my account due to "unusual activity" on my card. They have not been able to advise what this "unusual activity" is. They now want a copy of my ID & credit card. I refused to provide it. No other ride sharing company has requested this before. They can easily verify whether my card is stolen or not. Looks like they are trying to worm out of the free rides. The competition is beating them without even trying. When you raise a query, they are very slow to respond.
So customer service needs some work.
Maps don't seem to be very accurate.
Has my brother been kidnapped or are your drivers just thieves???
This driver was meant to drop my brother at church. They left at 08h42 and he only ended the trip at 09h04... it only takes a max of 12 minutes to get the church from my house. I suspect that he did not end the trip after dropping my brother off because the the estimated cost was R45-54 but the final price ended up being R74??? How is that possible because even during peak times, the highest amount for this distance is R60, even when there is traffic. I would like to get an explanation please. The driver was very unfriendly, so that doesn’t put me at ease either.
There is no option for disputes or complaints on the app. How can this problem get solved because this driver (Nkosinathi, driving a gold VW Polo Sedan, number plate beginning with FR33) has clearly stolen money by not ending the trip after drop off. Furthermore, I have proof that his end location is not what I had originally put into the app.
If I could give a negative score, I would.
