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.

Terrible but better than the alternative

Traveling in Shanghai and don't speak any Mandarin. Needed a way to get around so tried DiDi. Used it 10 times. First major issue is the English interface for entering starting location and destination is maddeningly bad. Locations super easily found in Google maps don't seem to exist. After 10 mins of trial and error I can usually find a location nearby, but often not the actual location. The credit card payment only accepts Visa, but doesn't tell you that (or at least that was the issue for me). After 10-15 minutes of frustratingly trying to set locations, the pick up and drop off worked great and payment seemed to work fine. One tricky part is the driver might text you in the app and it was in chinese. There are some default replies that you can give, but was never really sure if we understoood each other. Seems like lots of easy fixes, but foreigners are clearly not their target market.
