Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Have been using Hampden for years as a reliable local company and had great expectations when downloaded their app just to get disappointed by its poor features: for the start , the app does not indicate the whereabouts of the nearest driver , neither the estimated time of arrival to the pick up location, which is frustrating; secondly, once the pick up and drop off locations have been entered there is no info on the length/ cost of the journey before you choose to proceed with booking. The company should push the developer to address these issues if they want to retain their customers.
Well, actually not bad!
I am using this app constantly and thus far 100% of the time it has taken me where I wanted to go. It is not the clearest app I have seen, but with a little effort it is perfectly useable. I have not given my credit card details to the app, so I can't comment on the accusation given on another review. In the settings there is, however, a place where you can set a default payment type. I have left this to Cash. I wonder if the other reviewer had it set up on "Card". For the other accusation that you can't trace the car or the estimates are false... yeah, I have seen that too, but other times these have been spot on. Bottom line: every time the taxi has come and taken me where I needed to go. For me this app works. Hampden Cabs seems a reasonable company, and all the drivers I have encountered have been pleasant.

The 13 Mar 2017 update seems to have broken the app. I am locked out. It asks me to log in or register. Any login attempt or an attempt to reset the password causes the app to tel me that I am an "unknown user". I hope this will be fixed soon.
Update a year later
Soon after writing the above, I simply reregistered, re-entered my details, favourites etc. Once done, I was up and running again. Service as usual, no complaints what so ever!
Long wait times
It often a long time for a taxi to be assigned to you once you book one (20 minutes plus sometimes). You don’t even get the option to call the office to find out how long it’ll be until you’ve been assigned a cab.
If you know you’ll want one and preorder to avoid that it turns up 10 minutes or more early!
