professional & dependable

Have been using Chauffeur Privé in Paris regularly for a couple of years and have found them to be very reliable, the drivers courteous and professional. Very pleased with this service.

Worked great at first but then........

The App worked flawlessly for three days and then it stopped accepting my credit card all of a sudden. It gave an error when requesting a ride. I know my card is good having used it all over Paris. I tried registering a second credit card but was rejected. I reached out to customer service and was told that it was my banks error. However, I spoke with my bank and all looked good from their end. I tried using the app again the next day and the same error occurred. But this time even though a ride was not placed, I immediately received an alert from my bank saying that an authorization has been placed on my card from Kapten. Once again I reached out to their customer service only to be given a lecture about credit card authorizations. If an authorization was approved it means my credit card is working just fine. Kapten is a joke! Stick with Uber instead. It might be a little more pricey but it’s certainly more reliable. Don’t waste your time with Kapten. It left me stranded in Paris rush hour!

Poor experience

app was working fine for first few days - I used it for about 5-6 rides until one day they came out with a 50% off promo and I used it once before all of a sudden the app stopped working, saying there is something wrong with my payment account. When I messaged customer service they were adamant to say there is something wrong with my credit card but I know it’s not true because I had been using the same card for 5-6 rides already and I’ve continued to use the same card without an issue elsewhere. Tried registering other cards and they didn’t work either. Pretty sure what happened was they pushed too good of a promo and realized they were losing too much money, so they just turned off the payment function and blamed it on customers.
