About Hailo

  • Why should I sign up?

    The taxi business is changing and we are seeing more passengers ordering a cab through the convenience of their smartphone. Up until now, this has given an advantage to private hire firms - but because Hailo is Black cab only, London’s cabbies now have the chance to win back their work. Here are a few reasons we think every licensed taxi driver should register with Hailo: Get more passengers every shift. We’ll send you jobs when you want them which means you’ll spend less time running empty and more time earning more money. It’s free to download and there are no fees, subscriptions or long-term commitments. You simply pay when you earn. Hassle-free card payments, on Account or off the street. We are the No. 1 taxi app in London with over 14,000 drivers and 500,000+ registered customers. We were founded by three London cab drivers, for cab drivers - and with almost 50 years driving experience between them, we know your business inside out. The Hailo Driver app is also packed full of features to help you get the most out of your shift.

I’m only licensed to work in certain sectors. Will Hailo send me jobs outside of these?
