Ratings and Reviews
Basic app and quite expensive
I travel to London for work and previously used the Hailo service and app which was useful as I was able to store frequent journey types, with addresses, eg accommodation to work. In London this week I used the app to call a taxi, I couldn’t find any way of inputting my pickup or drop-off address, or re-using a previous journey to order again. If these function exist, it’s not obvious. There was no estimated fare shown as I hadn’t been able to input a destination, only a minimum fare. A car was quickly found and it “arrived” within a couple of minutes. Unfortunately, he wasn’t at my pickup address but two streets away - presumably where the location finder had decided I was at the point of ordering! This was resolved by telephone call. . The normal fare for this frequent journey with Hailo was approximately £15 however the MyTaxi driver took an unusual route and on the meter the final fare was £22. I do like the convenience of MyTaxi, being able to track where a cab is plus the security of a car registration and named driver but there are glitches to iron out with the app. I’ll give it another go next visit and hope to see improvements in the app.

We appreciate that you've left a review for the app.
You are able to save your home and work addresses by going into the profile, then selecting the profile image. When making a booking, you can set the pick-up address when making a booking by selecting the address bar with the concentric circle icon. The GPS is not always reliable, and so it is best to review the pick up address when you are making the booking.
The destination can be selected by pressing 'Booking Options', then 'Where are you going?'. You can calculate the fare estimate for the destination by heading to the profile, then 'Fare Estimate'.
If you would like to send through the details of the journey you are concerned with to email@example.com, we would be willing to review why the route was different, and whether the licence plate details match those in the app.
Worst travel app available
Been using MyTaxi since I have been in Barcelona, for the first 2 days it was good. I had no problem with using the app to get myself from A to B. But my last couple of holidays I was using it, it crashed and stoped working. I could not use the app, it was constantly freezing and would barley work. I was totally reliant on this app as I don’t speak Spanish and it’s hard to get a taxi in Barcelona as it is. I was always leaving early from the bars so I could get myself home. If this app actually worked I would of been able to enjoy my night life more but, unfortunately it was a let down. For some reason Uber does not work in Barcelona so ‘MyTaxi’ was the back up option. For me it will never be a back up option and forever be one of these apps that could have been, but it has instead ended up really lacking quality in its services. I felt that ‘my taxi’ was a trusted service which I relied on .. however this was not that case and I will certainly not be using this application in future. If only Uber existed in Barcelona, hopefully they will resolve the issue with Uber as this is the superior taxi service as I have realised from using ‘MyTaxi’. Overall, mytaxi has been VERY disappointing, and will not be recommended to any of my clients / friends and relatives.
A company that provides no customer service
In answer to my previous review (below) I received a terse message from the developer saying that the company MyTaxi provides customer service by email. However this is entirely false. There is no customer service by email- they do not reply to emails. There is no customer service at all, and I believe this is a major, serious flaw with the service. All potential customers should be warned- do not use this app service. If something goes wrong there is no one to contact- and they have your credit card details so they can do what they like and you have absolutely no recourse. There simply is no one you can contact. This company should not be allowed to trade at all on this basis. Providing customer service should be obligatory. All in all, my review is - beware. Do not use this app.
I have been using this app for more than a year and I take up to 3-4 taxis a day and I have spent a great deal of money with them. However I cannot recommend this company, in fact I strongly recommend not using it, because if there is a problem, as I have experienced, the company provides no customer service and doesn’t even have customer service. The company is based in Germany. There is no one to speak to if there is a problem with your account.
