Review from Pete Graham
Brilliant, worked first time As a tourist to Dublin this weekend I was recommended this by a taxi driver who wasn't even in the scheme! Used it this morning to grab a taxi to the port. Many taxis nearby and the one it booked arrived in 3 minutes. Option to pay cash or card when booking. Tip when you want to. 5 star app and no doubt. This really needs to come to Manchester.
Discount Scam! Only downloaded the app on the promise of a 50% discount between 6.00-7.00am during bus strike. When I logged on the night before pre-booking wasnt available. When i logged in at 6.00am i got a message telling me I had to book at least 1 hour in advance - booking time 7.01 - too late for the discount! A disgraceful scam and another day's pay list!!!
Love Hailo. The service is absolutely great, the app however needs some serious improvements. It crashes for me every time I press anything, and will only respond once I click "wait". Never have a problem with any of the drivers, lovely folks all rounds :)
Great but...... A great app, shame you can't pre- book a taxi if you're paying with cash instead of credit card (especially if you've used the app before so known to Hailo). Would love to have easy way to move old trip data to a new mobile phone, not lose all the old data.
Great Service Great service, great app! The location is a bit off- but never by too much. Just keep your eyes open for the plate number and youll be grand. Hailo works so well in dublin and to the airport!
Great app for taxi orders in Dublin. Payment can go straight to your card even if you are offline/not connected to 3G or out of battery. I have never had trouble in finding available drivers with it. It also allows you to adjust the tip percentage.
Totally inaccurate mapping Forced to use Hailo while in Barcelona (as Uber is not allowed). The actual location of the cab and what it shows on the map consistently way out. We've been left walking around looking for the cab at pick thinking.
Pre-booking your Hailo from the airport? Enter your flight number and rest easy. Your driver will collect you at the right time even if you're delayed.
And remember, London users can also collect Avios points for every Hailo trip they take. Find out all about it here: https://blog.hailoapp.com/2015/09/01/hailo-and-avios-fly-together
Get a ride with the push of a button. It's easier than a taxi and often cheaper!
