Very good service

We used the city cab app 3 times with each instance a different pick-up/drop off and a varying number of passengers. Each time we requested a cab in the app, one was exactly where we requested it at the time we stated. I will not hesitate to use this app again while in Edinburgh.

Cab never arrived

Requested cab to arrive at 5am, after waiting 30 minutes I see a receipt saying the job had been completed at 5:06. After I complained the full charge was removed but I was still charge a £2.20 inconvenience fee.

Outstanding App!

I was on vacation in Edinburgh in late summer 2012 and used this app numerous times. Never once was the driver late. Every driver we encountered was very friendly. Great app!!!!!
