Excellent price with a large choice of carriers. Car turned up on time with the driver contacting me via phone before arrival. Smartly dressed and personable with a clean modern people carrier.
Minor query I had regarding my booking quickly and efficiently handled by Jumpyns staff. This was my second booking with Jumpyn and I would use this service again without hesitation!
Easy to book. Original cab couldn’t pick up and they arranged for second cab. Worked well
The price quoted was extremely good and although the initial booking system refused to process my PayPal payment I eventually managed to pay from my debit card. The best part of the service however was when I received an e mail from the allocated taxi company stating they did not have a cab available to collect me at the airport. Not helpful when you are waiting to board a flight to London from Johannesburg! Jumpyn were quick to arrange an alternative company and all went without a hitch! Would recommend them to anyone requiring a taxi pickup.
