Ratings and Reviews
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.
Slower than ItTaxi not helpful with taxi scam
Tried to use this app several times during recent trip to Rome. (We had a large group with limited mobility and so had to take taxis a lot.) Many times My Taxi (now Free Now) could not find a car while ItTaxi would find one almost instantly in the same location.
The drivers we did have were all great except for our last which is the reason for the 2 stars. He deliberately scammed us with a fare inflating route taking us on the “scenic” route of Rome when we were trying to get to Termini on our last day.
We kept asking him to take us directly to Termini and he just agreed but continued to drive past the Vatican (which was 15+ minutes out of the way itself), the Pantheon, Forum/Colleseum, etc. A 20 minute trip turned into an hour a €58!!!!! We were trying to catch a train and didn’t have time to argue with him at drop off. He also dropped us off on on a side street instead of out front.
I contacted Free Now support about the fare. But their only response was that “the fare is consistent with the route” even though I explained the issue. The app also blocked me from reviewing the ride until after the 48hour window closed. Beware.
TERRIBLE, Deserves no stars
My review is slightly biased because my first time and probably only time using this App was in Rome. The drivers have bad customer service. To top it off the app will give you an estimate (just like uber) of how much your ride should cost and it was ALWAYS wrong. The drivers start the and run the meter way before they pick you or or start you at an 8-10$ base so be prepared to pay over their estimate. I understand that is how taxis work but in that case get yourself an Uber X and pay the same or less for a nicer car! The second time using this App the drivers were grouped up waiting outside a metro stop saying it had to be a minimum of 20$ base! Yes, 20$! Meanwhile I caught an uber x and paid 16$ to my hotel. Be very careful while using this App because you will be scammed. Take a regular cab or Uber. I hope this isn’t happening everywhere but it was in Rome.
