Absolutely down the pan. Used to be a reliable service. The past 3 times I have used it for work, not only have the taxis not arrived, but there has been no notification of cancellation. This morning was the last straw. I had an important …

Our company has been using AddisonLee for years now and the service has just gone down hill. They are never on time for pre-booked cars, forget about trying to book on strike days, and some of the drivers just aren’t pleasant. When the …

I booked a transfer to Stansted airport 24h in advance. But what happened is that at the time of the booking (5.30AM) they started looking for a driver. It took for them 20 minutes. …

I opened an account this week and booked my first journey to collect me from a concert at the O2 on Easter Sunday. No taxi arrived and I rang and was informed the booking was unable to be fulfilled. Terrible service. Will cancel my account and move it elsewhere. Addison Lee is meant to be reliable.

I use this company as a DSA cab service from student finance, so I have no say in which company to use and I wish I did. I heavily rely on these cabs as I am disabled and commuting exacerbates my symptoms greatly. Sometimes I have no …

Pre booked a taxi pick up for 6:00pm. It finally arrived at 7:15pm. Most unhelpful. Driver would not answer the phone and eventually declined the job. Phoned Addison Lee who dispatched another car. They did not offer any compensation or even an apology. Just said they have no control over the drivers.

I will never use this company again. During the recent strike, I’ve booked their taxi one week in advance and was told there will be no problems. However, on the day of the strike and after working until 7 pm, the taxi never arrived. I …

Once a reliable and quality cab service that we used quite abit to take us to and collect us from the airport. Gone downhill since Brexit & the Pandemic…..can’t book a cab largely because they don’t have enough drivers. And when you are lucky enough to do so, they are always late.

After 12 months of being unable to book a car through this service due to heavy demand i had given up on Addison Lee after ten years or so of great service prior to the last 12 months, but I thought, let’s give it one last try for a 4.40am …

Cars and drivers fantastic, what lets the service down not the booking Emirates did that, but the sms and emails from Addison Lee with links that don’t work in order to verify the booking, there is also a telephone number which does work.

Awful service. Our pick up time was set for 12:45. When i got hold of the driver at 13:07 he said he was 10-15 minutes away. At 13:33 he said he had taken a wrong turn and was still 10 minutes away. He eventually arrived at 13:45, an hour …

Shocking service (or lack thereof). Pick-up time came and went. No sign of the prebooked and confirmed car. At least someone answers my telephone call to the office, but they still were unable to confirm a pick-up time. Had to cancel and book an Uber at the last minute. Disgraceful.

We used this mimi cab company for the 1st time on 13th January. We ordered the cab from Central London to Benfleet. It was easy to do ordered and paid for the journey. Driver arrived on time and was very pleasant and we had a smooth journey home. Will use them again if I need a cab.

No idea how they are still in business, used to be OK 15 years ago but their technology and customer service has not kept pace with competitors. Website is full of bugs and most customer relations staff (including the so-called escalation team at the customerrelations email address) are rude and unhelpful, even to account customers.

Booked 2.5 months in advance. Heathrow to London. Confirmed that they’d send driver details ahead of pick up, that driver would meet us at the Arrivals Hall at pre-arranged time. Driver showed up almost a half hour late, after we had to call to find out where he was. Driver was good when arrived.

This is the second time in short time that the car hasn’t showed up at the prebooked time. If they don’t have the cars available, they shouldn’t take the pre bookings. Very frustrating and stressful to find alternative transport in such a short notice. Very disappointed, appalling service.

Absolute joke of a company. Last three times I’ve prebooked with >6 hours notice and they simply haven’t found a driver or showed. Almost missed a Eurostar. Prices quoted double what I actually picked with the black cabs who could actually complete the journey. Avoid at all costs.

4 mins before car was due, got a text saying that they hadn’t yet allocated a driver. Called them, they couldn’t even commit to a car arriving within the next hour. Absolutely dreadful. Avoid at all costs. If you need to be somewhere at a specific time, don’t risk this bunch of losers.

Absolutely terrible. Kept my 85 year old parents standing in the cold at 10pm, despite having pre-booked the service 48 hours in advance. Did not refund the trip, despite having promised to do so (we cancelled long before the car actually arrived). Will never ever use them again.

Made a booking for 9:30am from Westminster to take a parcel to Shoreditch, the night before. Booking was accepted. By 10am the following day no one had bothered to turn up. I called to ask where the car was and was advised by a rude customer services agent that it hadn’t been allocated. Will not use again.

Emirates provide a complimentary chauffeur drive to the airport for business and first class passengers. We booked a car for 9.40 for the airport drop and at 9.30 our driver was still in Leeds 45 minutes away. Completely unacceptable when you are going to the airport to catch a flight. I would avoid these jokers at all costs.

Taxi to airport was over 40 minutes late – and still had no driver assigned. I had to get an Uber instead. This firm used to be good but they are now unreliable – and the drivers are often exhausted (to the point where one recent driver almost fell asleep at the wheel). Very sad to see the decline of this company.
