Great idea but had three problems. 1) Taxi didn't turn up twice. 2) 7 seater ordered, 5 seater turned up. 3) Cancelled via app, but taxi turned up. Said I didn't cancel. Full fare charged! Used them for 13 years prior to this. Never again.
Updated and better than ever.
Whilst the app received a major update recently which required me to create a new account the updated version is better than ever (and actually now tells you the cost within the app). Like UBER for Reading except you’re using a local taxi company. Highly recommended.
Updated and now my user is unknown
Used this app a lot. This update and I cannot login and the forgotten password option says my email is an unknown user! Rubbish
