It's rare when you can even get a taxi. When you can it's nice. Sometimes I try over an hour and just give up. I know that can be said for taxis on the streets as well, but this is rediculious. Also sometimes drivers go around in circles and opposite directions when you are waiting for pickup. Then if you cancel you can't use the app for 5 minutes. It's nice when it actually works.

The worst. This service is not reliable. KakaoT can cancel your booking at any time even on that day but customers have to pay a cancellation fee if I want to cancel after making a reservation. I booked a van a week ago for the airport ride. An hour before the departure time, I was notified that the driver canceled my booking because there was a traffic jam, which was ridiculous. I had to find a van and pay way more than I had booked. KakaoT didn’t compensate my inconvenience and extra pay.

I ordered a taxi in a place with lots of taxis. One was selected that was 'less than 5 minutes away'. The taxi then drove in the wrong direction away from me for 10 minutes, and was predicted to arrive in 15 minutes even from that point (so 25 minutes late, and a time that was still increasing). So obviously I cancelled it. Already in a hurry, I then tried to order another taxi. I couldn't, as the app informed me I was being punished for cancelling the previous one. WHAT?
