Taxi to airport didn't show up!!! Left me stranded having to call another taxi company as no one was in their office!! Then taxi showed up apparently at my place 3 hours late. This comes after previous issues with my bookings being put in the system incorrectly with driver calling me at 5am on days I never booked one! Terrible. Never using again. They also overcharge.
I had previously rung the company two days beforehand to book taxi's for 20 people, to take us to an event. I was given excellent phone service, as the lady was very helpful, told me I would either be given two 10 seater vans or 5 4 seater cars and the charge would range from $60 - $100 all up ($30 per van, $20 per car).
The first van showed up bang on 8 o'clock which is when I ordered them for. Great! Then another car showed up, and finally another. That was it. No other car came for a final two people, which I find absolutely ridiculous anyway as it left two people to pay for a whole car. I was told by the driver of a previous car that another was coming and was brushed off with an extremely rude attitude. We then waited a further 10 minutes for a car which we were told was coming, and did not. We then ordered from First Direct and a car came in 5 minutes.
I am appalled by the lack of care and service taken by the company in this instance. I made sure to have this sorted before the night and was told it would be so. The whole incident was unnecessary and unwelcome, it was a very cold evening to be standing outside waiting for a taxi that never showed up.
Luckily it didn't ruin the whole evening, but it was not a good start. Because of this, I will not use Blue Star anymore.
I've hailed Blue star twice in the last week.
I checked the first driver had eftpos before I got into the cab, after arriving at home he told me he didn't have eftpos. He drove me to an atm, but left the meter on. He refused to acknowledge this and charged me the extra. He then gave me the wrong change and when I pointed it out he tried to wave me off.
The second driver had an eftpos machine, but after arriving at my home he admitted it didn't work and that he knew this when he picked me up. He also took me to an atm; I made sure he kept the meter off, his reaction and body-language made it clear that he would have preferred to keep it on. I payed him when I got back into the car and he stopped at the corner of my street and requested we walk the remaining 100m my house.
Both of these incidents are unacceptable, they may be isolated incidents, I hope they are.
20.8.13- 6pm. Ordered a taxi two hours in advance through new iPhone app. Called them as late, only to be hung up on and spoken to very rudely. You think they actually want your business!? Called opposition and they are here in10 mins. Customer service just shocking! Don't recommend at all!!!
