Worst experience, especially, in the winter. Pick up pin had issues twice in a roll within the same day. Picked a ride that is supposed to pick me up quicker, and I chose to pay a bit more. But, as soon as I made my selection, the waiting time doubled. That is low. The driver of the 2nd trip didn't wait for me where the pin was, I had to walk for a minute in the cold trying to get to her.

I really think with a few simple tweaks to the app this could be so much easier to use and way more customer friendly. Firstly add option for return trip to be able to add after initial booking. And just 1 small step further, add option to add stops along the journey. Could be an extra passenger, two friends sharing a ride home, etc

I love the app very much and it's easy to use . The problem I have is that if I have a trip and I'm paying via Card payment, it takes it's time to actually withdraw the money from my account, usually 30-40 minutes after the trip has ended. I should request, get a trip or a driver and then it takes money immediately after , so to avoid complications to my account.
