Ratings and Reviews
Pointless - only offers option to pay by cash
Can't set payment method to credit card. Useless. Will delete.
Cancelled a booking straight away because ordered ASAP instead of tomorrow. Car showed up anyway and told me over the phone I hadn’t cancelled; even though I had and I had confirmation of said cancellation. Driver suggested I was a liar.
Ended up having to phone for the taxi instead because even when I selected the correct date it would not accept the address I was going to. ‘Bristows Heliport’, a very easy address!
Best in Aberdeen
Works well - annoying that you can’t select card payment from the drop down menu (only cash). I just write CARD PAYMENT in the notes. Simple fix you’d think?
