Looking for more jobs?
We’re currently experiencing record highs with the coverage of Hailo work. It’ll be no surprise we also have the highest ever amount of drivers using Hailo right now.
The City and heart of the West End is heavily saturated with Hailo drivers at peak times. There’s plenty of jobs to be had slightly outside the heart of central London.
If you’re looking to gain Priority Driver status or simply want more Hailo jobs, give the below areas a try:
Many of our drivers gain Priority Driver status in just these areas alone...
The Hailo for Business team have been working hard setting up new high quality accounts, on many occasions replacing a minicab service.
On the back of this success we have unfortunately noted that some drivers are under reporting cash fares in the app.
Hotels, restaurants and other cash paying customers have contacted us complaining they’re receiving receipts for their journeys that do not match the amount paid in cash to the driver.
We kindly ask all drivers to enter the correct fare on all cash jobs you complete...
Whether you’re a ‘Brexiteer’ or a ‘Remainiac’, if the polls are to be believed one of the biggest decisions that this country has ever faced hangs in the balance…
By the time we are all tucking into our fish supper on Friday evening, we will know whether the future of the UK remains in the European Union or not.

Running the Town
The London Marathon was held on Sunday and we want to wish a big congratulations to the Hailo drivers who took part; Martin Coleman, Rob Bryant, Sam Meeks, Lucy Giu, Ray Howard and Darren Wayland. Thanks to all who donated to Darren’s chosen charity helping him to raise an amazing £3,500 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! An amazing effort from all who ran and raised money for important causes.
Of the drivers we asked about the Marathon over a third said that they have either ran the London Marathon before or would like to do it in the future...
Hailo, London’s favourite taxi app, has joined forces with Airport Angels to provide fast-track services to, through, and away from London’s airports.
Airport Angels has chosen Hailo as its preferred ground transport partner to ensure their airport transfer clients reach their final destinations quickly and safely.
With an increasing volume of young travellers passing through London’s airports, as well as business people and VIPs with tight schedules, Airport Angels’ business has grown by over 70% in the last year providing a critical service for its clients...
It’s All About You
Now things are starting to get back to normal post-Easter, I want to use this month’s blog to talk about cabbies, the trade and London’s future.
With the Mayoral Elections around the corner and campaigns like ‘Stay Fare Mayor’, it’s clear that there’s a lot of noise surrounding transport regulation and policy in London.
