Ok, so someone posted groupon deal for gettaxi credit and I realised that not many people know that you can get free £25 credit, effectively free taxi ride and no need buying groupon.

Just download GetTaxi app on your Android or Apple device and enter code NEWCITY25 and enjoy your free ride.

They are new and only operate in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham at the moment.

Code NEWCITY25 expired now.

Nice find

Most likely a stupid question.
How do you use the credit, do you pre pay and give your account number or something?

I have signed up got the credit and says onky valif when you pay by credit card, any idea if you could usr this with a debit card??

Assuming it's like Uber, it'll all be done through your/the driver's phones. At the end of the journey the driver will tap the button on their phone to say the fare is over, and that'll tell the app to deduct the money from your card/balance.

Great, I'm moving next week and could do with a free taxi ride to transport some stuff

how much is one journey in london? is it over 25£

Any idea of an expiry date? Going to Liverpool in June...

If my fare comes to say £30 will I have to pay only £5 if using the NEWCITY25 code?

Just to help, I've used this a far bit in Liverpool. I used Groupon, wish I'd seen this first! Firstly, this is only for new customers and can only be used on your first rides so make sure you add it before you use them for the first time. You'll need to add a debit/credit card, but they only charge you to your card if you exceed your credit (there's also the option to pay in cash). Here in Liverpool, they seem to only be available around the city centre - I tried to get one from Knotty Ash and I got a message saying there was no coverage, so depending on where you are, I wouldn't count on them getting one to you. I think they're still building up their cabbies yet and don't have very many. Would say all the drivers I've had so far have been polite and helpful. And I usually have only waited for 5 mins at the most for one to arrive. Anyway, hope that helps x

Excellent. Anyone used this before? How does the credit come off the app. Shared this with a few people. This type of app needs to his the big time and kill traditional rip off taxi firms :)!

installed the app, got the credit added to my balance. I haven't added a credit card yet. Anybody know if my journey stays below £25, do I still need to register a card?

Edit: Answered two posts up, pretty much.

I do wish it estimated the fares though
Also the one i really want to see is BHX airport added, with the fare. That's what I'm most after with this credit

Indeed,you're helping the HUKD Facebook page tremendously

When I try to enter the code I get the message "This code can only be used for your first ride" and it won't proceed and accept the code. It seems I can't bank the code to use at a later date?

great thanks for this

I can't add the voucher either, same error as above

Thank you

Heard good things about Uber, so will give this a bash when in brum or pool

I used a previous code and one thing I've discovered:

When you want to use the free credit, make sure to choose to pay for the journey by card and NOT by cash.

As my free credit was worth more than the journey, I thought I could elect to pay by cash and it'd use the free credit first.... but alas no

a quick questions, can i sent invite to friends (free £10) and they can also insert the £25 code in ops? (So total each of us will have £10 + £25 = £35)

Wrong forum, try the Bradford JobCentre

it said this coupon can be used for your first ride only

How is that got to do with manners?

Can this only be used for 1 ride up to £25 or multiple ones, like 5 £5 taxis?

It says "Expired"? Any other code please. Thanks

Did they pulled the plug on it earlier? Can someone confirm? The alternative is referral code which will give you and the person referring you £10 each... not as good but better than nothing...

This code is expired.

Had a very good experience with Uber in Birmingham. As others have said, city centre seems not a problem. The burbs in these cities are the issue.

Sorry, commenting is no longer available on this deal.
