Ratings and Reviews
Good service but..
I have used this faithfully for over three years however on Saturday I needed to go to the hospital there wasn’t a driver so naturally I cancelled however I still have not received a refund or anything confirming the money would be sent back to me and as such I will be using a different service.
Watch out for the fare!
The app is well designed and convenient, but make sure the driver uses the meter, because the prices quoted in the app are high and not considered "estimates". They were going to charge me £10 for a £6 trip - fortunately the driver was honest and ran the meter. Once they solve this issue and make the fare in the app an "estimate", this will be a great app. Also, it would be nice to be able to save the whole trip record with comments for reuse.
This app is brilliant! You can book your taxi, and then see the vehicle details (colour/model/number plate) and current location on a map.
I use A1 taxis daily and they are extremely reliable. Unlike some other taxi companies, you always know that they're on their way when they say they are -- and this app lets you see that for yourself!
(with regards to pricing, I've spoken to them on the phone and they've said the app gives an estimate -- and if you choose to pay by card that is what you will pay. I always pay cash, and the driver has always used the meter, which for me has always been cheaper than the estimate.)
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
