The service itself was fine but the driver was extremely rude for no reason. No hello and practically shooed me out of... the car when I arrived at my destination. I’m also not a fan of the payment system. Personally I would prefer tapping my card on a card reader or something other than reading aloud all my sensitive card details.read more
