“Disgraceful company”

Take your £80 deposit then don't pick up 15 girls for a hen party, hang up the telephone every time you call. Called the office over 20 times to be told someone will get back to me, non one ever calls back & the staff are just damn right rude. I would advise no one to use this company! I will not let this go until I get a full refund!

I could expand on the issues I encountered which include turning up (well they did get to within a Street or so of the pickup point so some might say that counts as turning up) 15 minutes late, charging double the standard local rates for the job, having vomit residue on the car seats (I actually booked the VIP service so God only knows you can expect from their normal drivers).
The best way I can describe this poor excuse for a taxi service provider is to use their own words You can stick your [trustpilot] post up your arse! Customer service is clearly not their strong point but then neither is punctuality, nor locational awareness, nor cleanliness or for that matter personal hygiene. They are a disgrace: avoid like the plague.

Driver collected us late, admittedly the time had been changed, but when he said he was 20 minutes away, he actually showed up around 45 minutes later. Collected 13 of us from London at 12.30 in the morning, on the motorway on the way home, broke down with no hard shoulder because... HE HAD NO FUEL! Ended up being stuck on the side of the road for 3 hours, with no explanation, finally the police came and if it wasn't for them, we'd have been stuck there all night. Disgusting service which ruined my friend's hen do, avoid these people.

I booked transport from Manchester to London and from London to Gatwick Airport. Transport was on time and drivers really helpful.

Thanks goes to Ash at Taxiquoter.co.uk and our drivers Gary and Mr. Khan.

Well done - fast service, I was able to communicate with the drivers and very well priced.

Do not use this company - they have multiple websites and are scammers.
I booked a return mini bus for 12 people for a day out at the races. Paid a £80 deposit and £120 cash to the driver.
They used another taxi firm to our source the journey and when the driver arrived he showed up in a 8 seat mini bus as they had not booked it correctly with them so had problems with that in the end they had to send a taxi for the rest of us, they then tried charging us more money for that which we refused to pay as we had paid £200 already.
We then were never picked up at the end of the day, when calling the company back they said to call back Monday and that no one could help. We were left stranded and had to pay another £120 to get train back home.
Called the company Monday to speak to them about what happened and they said they would call back never did. Called again Tuesday and they said they were looking into it and would call me back in the hour. Never did. Called again and they said I never booked a return journey! Absolute liars and complete rip off just take your money! Also staff rude and managers never there when you ask to speak to them, very dodgy!
Do not use

Booked a minibus through their worker amy. Who quoted me £250 to take and return to a festival. She then asked for a £90 deposit. She then took days to send me the details. When she finally did, I worked out I had 160£ to pay.

The cab driver rang me asking if I could find him as he couldn't find me. When he finally did he demanded £20 for eating and drinking cleaning fees, when amy told me I could drink on the bus just fine. Then he said she said I have £180 to pay. Which was ridiculous as that's over the amount she quoted. I was forced to pay it and contact her later on.

The driver was rude and could not drive. Had his own music on full blast and didn't even offer it to anyone else. Or ask if it was okay. Drove over bumps fast and proceeded to be difficult. When picking us up, he was late and didn't even apologise. He couldn't tell us the direction he was coming off and said he was going to a side road so can we just meet him there.

After dropping us home. On Monday I tried to ring the company who avoided me. Their manager is as rude as the cab driver himself. Telling me I was talking over him when he was talking over me. Told me there was no point helping me. Then did not even bother to pick up the phone for hours or ring me back.

NEVER EVER USE THIS SERVICE. They are rude and nasty.

My daughter booked a minibus to go to a festival. Paid £90 deposit out of £180 price quoted. No sign of the driver so rang Taxiquoteer. No answer. Rang mobile number for the driver and he said he would be 45 mins. They waited. No sign so rang again. No answer. So who are you supposed to contact? Had to pay £150 for taxis to music festival. Try to complain to Taxiquoter and was told by somebody who spoke poor English on a terrible line to ring back tomorrow. If you want letting down then ring these cowboys because you won't be disappointed

The mini bus didn't arrive and we missed our ferry! When we called there was no answer and our "driver" apparently no longer works for the company. We were given wrong numbers and no other ways of contacting them. NEVER use this company!

Booked pickup for Manchester Airport. Driver failed to show. First phone call to him elicited a mumbled (sleepy) response about traffic. Then phone switched off.

I had foolishly paid in advance and have had no response from taxi quoter to any of my emails requesting a refund.

While this site may not be a sham, it is entirely unprofessional and should be avoided

AVOID AT ALL COSTS. I went to book girlfriends hen do to Liverpool, 15 travellers. However something didn't seem right with the booking process, far cheaper than the others and seemed to vague in the booking process. Called the number it gave me, bloke answered, told me to hang on it then went dead. A lot of reviews say the same thing. Luckily I didn't part with any money.

DO NOT USE THIS SITE
I booked two taxis and called the firm they had quoted me the unbelievable prices for, and that's just what they were - unbelievable! The taxi firm were completely unaware of this site and were shocked that it had provided me with their details! It's an absolute scam! I'm lucky I selected 'pay cash on pick up' I can imagine a lot of people would pay online.
This site needs to be shut down!

I had used this sight before and hadn't had a problem. However, A couple of weeks ago I booked a cab for LNH but the website somehow messed up the times. I called the taxi company GUY PRICE TAXI and they said they would do a full refund for my advanced payment and they never did. Been trying to call several times and there has been no answer. Scam.

Booked a Taxi for my wifes birthday treat. Was contacted to inform me that despite the website accepting the booking on behalf of a company no taxi was available. I have not had a refund of the advanced payment made at time of booking. I have had no response to repeated emails/online contacts. Avoid at all costs... complete rip off.

Amazing website just got a quote from Manchester Airport to Liverpool Airport For £40. I also confirmed it with the taxi driver i thought it was a mistake but it was the actual price I will be paying. I hope I had found this website earlier as it would have saved me a fortune. BRILLIANT!

Booked a taxi for a simple trip into town. Found a decent price... but it never turned up. Called the taxi firm who informed me that they were based 160 miles away, so hardly worth a £10 fare!
The email correspondence I've had since then has been nothing short of appalling. Ignoring me, avoiding my questions, and I've had to fight tooth & nail to get my deposit refunded.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

I was an affiliated taxi company for this taxi booking agent, they would take the booking and if you paid on credit card they would never pay us our fare. Never use this company, Always go directly to a reportable company they are usualy cheaper than the booking agents

DO NOT USE THEM. They often don't even bother turning up! Absolute useless customer service. And whatever you do, do not pay by card. If the quote is to good to be true, it probably is and you'll never see a cab at your door.

I booked Guy Price taxis online through taxiquoter, got the email confirmation of the booking and everything was fine. However, the taxi never turned up and when I rang to ask where they were they told me they weren't coming! I am a disabled person who was left stranded at an unfamiliar railway station - disgusting! The person I spoke to was rude and couldn't care less. Fortunately I did not pay up front. DO NOT USE THIS SITE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES AND DEFINITELY DO NOT BOOK WITH GUY PRICE TAXIS

DO NOT USE THESE COYBOYS. Absolute jokers. Out for my 30th and they left 12 of us high and dry. They said they had no confirmation of our booking despite us having it on paper. Very close to ruining the night and cost us an arm & leg getting home. Biting my tongue writing this.

I was staying in glasgow and use this site to organise a taxi for a work appointment the next day. The details of the taxi company they said had been booked for me were invalid. I called taxibooker back who then said they couldn't help and would refund my money (it wasn't much, bit I work hard for my money and don't see why they should get any of it for NOT providing a service) - over a week later, despite several calls, I'm still waiting.

Q&A (2)

Answer:

I wanted to use these people to pick up my daughter from the airport and I asked who the driver would be, and what car would be used but they REFUSED to give me any details until they had my credit card details. BEWARE... how would you know if they are licensed drivers and have licensed vehicles? You wouldn't!
