£15 of Hailo credit for London taxis from Amex – be quick, only 500 available!

(EDIT, 9am:  We have exhausted the entire Amex supply of codes already!)

You will need to move fast if you want to claim this one.  There are only 500 available and Head for Points readers could easily wipe them out this morning!

If you read my review of iPhone travel apps on Monday, you will remember that I praised the taxi app Hailo which has made a real change to my taxi-ordering behaviour.

Amex is now offering £15 of Hailo credit to everyone, whether they are new or existing customers of Hailo.


This is what you have to do (this is a cut and paste from here):

“American Express Cardmembers are eligible to receive a £15 credit on their next Hailo ride, between 17 February and 7 March 2014.  Follow these steps to redeem the offer:

1. Download the app by clicking here for Android and clicking here for iOS 

2. Load your American Express Card into the Hailo App and set it as ‘default’

3. In the ‘Account’ page of the App, enter voucher code ‘HAILOAMEX’ under ‘Hailo Credits’

4. The next time you travel with Hailo between 17 February and 7 March 2014, the £15 credit will automatically be deducted from the total cost of your trip.

This offer is available for the first 500 Cardmembers to redeem the code. The voucher code can only be used for one trip, regardless of whether the trip costs more or less than £15. Only one voucher code can be used per Hailo account.”

I can confirm that the offer was working fine at 23.30 last night – my Hailo app now shows £15 of credit.

  1. Just used my £15 of credit for a journey I would have had to use a taxi for anyway, so a good result!

  2. Just redeemed it, was completely impressed as I normally never use a Mobile app: cab in less than 3 minutes, clean and at my destination quickly…

  3. Just a note – if you don’t use the whole £15 you lose the remaining value, so basically I should have given the driver a bigger tip….
