  • Quotes are in real-time, meaning that you’ll never get tricked by a low quote or miss out on an offer

  • Booking is quick and easy

Site Cons

  • There are complaints about drivers being late (see on Minicabit’s Facebook page)
  • Some users say that they had been charged twice for the same drive
  • It does seem that sometimes the drivers aren’t aware of the fee beforehand- some customers complain of drivers trying to charge them more than they should

  • Check the customer reviews on

Overall, Minicabit seems like a good option to use when needing a taxi: cheap, quick and reliable, its price matching service and ability to get fares in real-time are useful features, and with the majority of drivers being friendly, reliable and on-time, there isn’t much to criticise.
