How to travel around London in style...

The app allows me to use my phone to hail a taxi in two taps so I can find somewhere safe to stand with the children instead of awkwardly teetering in the road hoping an empty driver will notice my odd gestures are intended for him. It tells me exactly how long the cab will be and alerts me when it arrives.

I am then told the driver’s name, contact number and licence plate and as all Hailo drivers have to be registered and carry ID this removes any risk of us getting into an unlicenced cab. The older children were kept entertained watching out for the taxi and on arrival happily jumped in greeting the driver by first name and introducing themselves.
