Uniformed Driver Hire


Unreliable taxi service
Pre-booked a taxi the day before travel using their app service and gave credit card details to pre-pay. Taxi did not show up. Called the call centre, and I was now late for the train, who said there were no drivers available. I explained that I had pre-booked and had a booking reference . The call handler said that it meant nothing and they had no drivers available and everyone was in the same position, I wasn't special. Ended up driving, under a lot of stress , to catch a train to London with only minutes to spare. Terrible, unreliable service and I will never use them again. The app is meaningless.

Ridiculous Rude and Incompotent
Seriously bad service what a terrible this company is.
Taxi 15min late on way to a connection flight to US.
Driver sits and argues that its not his fault.
And when we call the office, his/their attitude is even worse, again deciding to argue that it's not his fault either...because and I quote, 'It wasn't me who took your booking'.
Avoid these guys at all cost. They simply don't care.

Have been using edinburgh private hire for 20+ years and recently am not impressed. Most drivers are rude and bad mannered towards womenand when complaints are made nothing is done. Discount not been properly given or at all. Company has went down hill. Not great at all and personally wouldn’t recommend this taxi company at all.

Slick Cabby
The hotel warned us that SOME the drivers were slick. My travel companion put the oily cabby in his place for his unsolicited deTOUR and added expense to the airport.

Save yourself the hassle and call another company!
