Ratings and Reviews
Not good for foreigners until they speak language
This service has tremendous potential and works well if you speak Chinese. If you don’t, it’s a crap shoot. Most drivers do not check messages so if you say “Canadian woman red shirt by bus stop,” they still can’t find you and then call you- problematic if you don’t speak the language. Beijing people very willing to help but often not available when driver calls. I have suggested multiple times they train drivers to check messages. There is technology that would allow this to be done hands free or alert them and read them to them (or drivers could just answer when stopped (often in Beijing traffic). Until my Chinese improves, will use as infrequently as possible
Great App- Good service recovery for bad drivers
We used this app a lot while traveling in China. Sometimes Chinese drivers can be shady- we had one that talked on his phone and drove recklessly and one that made three intentional detours that resulted in a much higher increased fare. DiDi asks you to enable recording while on the drive- do this because when you have a bad experience they ask if they can access the recording. There are also buttons to immediately call the police if you find yourself in a bad situation. When we had the driver who took the detours, the app asked immediately if detours had been taken, and only charged us the estimate. The only downside, sometimes it doesn’t translate into English automatically so one of my friends had to take a picture with her phone on a translating app to see what it said. It has a great feedback section for every ride!
Do not travel to China without DiDi
The best and only Taxi App you can trust while living and/or traveling in China! Just do yourself the favor of downloading the app, set up International credit card and navigate the user interface in order to familiarize your self with it.
It’s unquestionably not easy to navigate anything in China without knowing Chinese and inputting addresses and/or locations can be challenging in any local app. Yet, this is due to the fact that using Pinyin (Chinese-Romanization) writing it’s difficult if you have not taken Chinese.
Regardless... of this, there are no other truly viable options with an English friendly GUI, that gets you where you need to go. We have been using DiDi for nearly four months on a daily basis and we could not live without it.
