  • Need pickup time before paying

    by xtrmtrk

    The cars are great, drivers good, service good. But you have to pay and book a car before you know when it will arrive. Crazy. Too many times if I'd known there would be a 20 minute wait, I would have just grabbed a taxi. They really need to give a pick-up time before you decide to pay.

  • Very useful

  • Works as expected

    by john.d.burk

    For the most part, this is a great app. I fire it up, usually select addresses from the "recent addresses" list, and book my car. Done, and the car shows up on time, immaculately clean every time. (How do they do that in West End London traffic?) I'd give this app a full 5 stars except for 2 minor annoyances: Sometimes the address lookup can be a bit odd It must be based on previous addresses any AddLee car has used; I think it's using AddLee's address database instead of a more complete one. That being said, I've never had an issue with a driver failing to arrive at the expected location on time. "Find My Location" always works, it's picking the destination address that can take a few inspired guesses. It can occasionally take the app 2 or 3 tries to authorize my credit card. This may be a result of my using a US credit card, so perhaps the CC company is slow to respond. Simply hitting the "Try Again" button eventually works, so I'm not inconvenienced by having to re-enter any data.

  • Rip off!

    by Stephen Murray

    This company is a such a rip off! They quote one price and don't tell about all the other hidden extras . Be aware when using them .

  • Do not use this company or this app

    by Nic.Wise

    This company breaks the law by using the bus lanes in London, at the suggestion of their chairman. Addison Lee's chairman, John Griffin, wrote a recent article in the firms magazine that was particularly negative towards cyclists and it may have the result of causing the firms drivers to behave even more irresponsibly towards road sharers. As a cyclist on London roads, I have found the minicab drivers to be the worst when it comes to regard for the safety of any person or vehicle around them. I will not be using this app or this company any more.

  • Addison Lee should be boycotted

    by themanwiththemac

    This company is unethical, tax dodging and verging on criminal. Avoid this company and this App

  • More like Addison Pee

    by Lesley Dodd

    Darn those pesky cyclists!

  • I will never ever use an AL cab!

    by stonevil

    I will never ever use an AL cab! Obnoxious drivers, bigoted boss, avoid at all costs.

  • Terrible!!

    by hockeyteam

    Use kabbee! Much better app. More reliable and cheaper! AVOID Addison Lee at all costs!

  • Disappointed

    by A road user

    Disappointed with John Griffin's approach to bus lanes and cyclists. Therefore difficult for me to rate this app any higher.


    by Crispycrackers

    The ap requires credit card details or bank account info to operate. I provided these and used the ap for a cab to Paddington Station. My cc was charged the quoted amount when booked. Addison Lee then charged a 18 pounds nearly two months later for an inexplicable "add-on or adjustment". I sent an email querying what this was for, and got an auto response directing me to another address, which I then re-wrote my query to and received no response. I will have spent at least two valuable hours by the time this is finished trying to undo the charge. Don't trust these people. They're either irresponsible or just plain greedy.
