Excellent service in Rome
I used the taxi service in Rome to request a car at 4:30am. I was worried about looking for a car so early on a Sunday morning so I booked the service the night before. I received a confirmation that a driver accepted the ride and felt better about it. The next morning about 15 min before the pick up time the app showed that the driver has canceled the ride. Fortunately I didn’t have to do anything. The app automatically looked for a new driver and a taxi came about a couple of minutes later than the original booking time. We could see on the map as the driver was approaching and the app showed his contact info.
Our destination was the airport and the driver charged us the flat fee as shown on the original estimate and as advertised on all taxis. There was no overcharge for the driver getting to our address as I have seen so many people complain about. The driver was nice and courteous and the car and the ride itself were excellent. I highly recommend the service.
Perfectly decent taxi-hailing app.
I have been using MyTaxi since early January while studying abroad outside of Madrid and have been very happy with it. I am almost always able to get a ride on-demand, and the taxi drivers who have picked me up have been very cordial and professional. Yes, the taxi drivers usually turn the meter on when you request a ride, not when they actually pick you up, and yes, the cost-estimates are sometimes inaccurate, but this is a taxi-hailing service, not a ride-share service. If you expect this app to function exactly as does Uber or Lyft, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment. If you want a reliable, easy-to-use taxi-hailing service, this app is perfectly fine.
I used this app to find a ride from my Airbnb in Rome to the airport.
This app, prior to booking, it gives you an estimated cost for the trip, just like Uber, but I ended up paying 20 euros more than the estimated cost. At first, I was okay with the price, but when I paid I realized that the driver had added an additional 5 euros for God knows what. I didn't want to argue with him, but instead I decide to contact customer service so I emailed them. They told me that “per their local taxi regulation, supplements could be applied on top of the metered fare for luggage and for extra passengers, from the fifth passenger onwards.” And I understand that, but I booked a car for 5 people only 4 made it, and each of us had 1 luggage avg. less than 50lbs. So I don’t understand where this charge came from, I felt scammed. It would be nice if they disclosed this “supplemental charge” before hand and their estimated rates weren’t so off. For now I wouldn’t recommend using this app to anyone- I wish I would’ve used my preferred option, Uber. They are more reliable and I can always count that their estimated prices are always on point. Also, if your Airbnb or hotel offers a shuttle option take it, quite frankly, ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN THIS APP AND THE TAXI DRIVERS.
