£10 of free London taxi credit with GetTaxi

I have mentioned Hailo and Uber a few times on Head for Points, and a lot of readers have been able to make some good savings using the codes I featured.

I have never mentioned GetTaxi, the smaller Hailo competitor, before.  It is currently offering a £10 free credit for new members so – if you are in London or heading there at some point soon – you have nothing to lose by downloading their iOS or Android app.

One advantage of GetTaxi over Hailo is that there is NO minimum fare (apart from 10am-5pm weekdays, Hailo has a minimum) and NO cancellation fees. 

This can be an issue with Hailo as you may want to cancel a job when, after claiming your nearest cab is 3 minutes away, your job is actually picked up by a driver 15 minutes away.  (You do get a one minute window with Hailo in which to cancel after the job is accepted before the fee kicks in.)  GetTaxi also allows you to book a taxi in advance.

To claim your £10 free credit, download the app and, once you have verified your mobile phone number, click on the ‘Coupon Code’ box on the menu.

Enter code GTSZFWS and £10 of credit will be dropped into your account.

One quick warning.  After you’ve signed up, GetTaxi will email or text you a £5 coupon code.  Do not input this into the app, as it will invalidate the £10 code if you haven’t already used it.  If you have already used the £10 code, the £5 code will not work.

    Good morning and thank youfor perfect timing as last night the hailo amex expired…(we had used the full allowance though)..will give it a try!
    Thanks!

  • Aeronaut says:

    Emailing you a coupon code that overwrites and invalidates the coupon code you have already entered is pretty daft.

    • Rob says:

      It doesn’t override it. However, you don’t need to enter the LDN10 code during sign up, you can do it later. If you had in the meantime entered the £5 code they send you it would invalidate the £10.

    I’ve used them in tel aviv (where they started up I think) and they’re superb! Best thing about it was the free wifi in the cab. Drivers are ranked and had a “top100” driver once, which was a joy!

    Not used in london though, and don’t think have wifi yet (tho might be wrong)- would be a serious winner if and when introduced.

    …also, you need to register your credit card to get the £10 credit :-)….looking forward to using them during half term as my Hailo credit has expired. Thanks again Raffles 😉

    Are the black cab lobby against this approach as well, (as per Uber?)

  • Dude26 says:

    I use them all the time when in Tel Aviv. Mostly good experiences.

  • jason says:

    • Idrive says:

      Yes! Also on MBNA! All after a couple of days

    • Rob says:

      Yes, got mine on four different cards! Went on as promised a few days after the £20 total was hit.

    The Amazon one is still alive from my post weeks ago, oddly. Amazon Local just seems to keep deals alive until people get bored!
