MyTaxi logo50% off all London black cab journeysVia free MyTaxi app. Off-peak travel only within M25


MyTaxi is the new version of what used to be Hailo - a free app for ordering black cabs. To mark its launch this week, MyTaxi is offering users 50% off all off-peak journeys within the M25 until 11.59pm on Sun 28 May.

The app helps you order one of 17,500 black taxis in London and, much like Uber, it sends a taxi straight to you. Normal fares are the same as if you were to hail a black cab on the street, the main difference being you'll pay via your registered card on the app.

Off-peak journeys are from 9am-5pm and 8pm and 7am on weekdays and all day and night at weekends.

How to get 50% off your journey

1. If you don't yet have the MyTaxi app (you'll need to download it even if you've previously used the Hailo app, which will now be redundant), download it for free and register your details.

2. You can then book your taxi - the full-price will initially show up on the app, but the discount will be applied automatically at the end of your journey - as long as your journey finishes within peak times - and the amount charged to your registered card.

MyTaxi does have cabs outside of London, but they are not eligible for this offer. Full terms and conditions are listed on the MyTaxi website.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.

If a link has a * by it, that means it is an affiliated link and therefore it helps MoneySavingExpert stay free to use, as it is tracked to us. If you go through it, it can sometimes result in a payment or benefit to the site.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link. For more details, read How This Site Is Financed.

For the sake of transparency, so you can check there's no difference, here are duplicate versions of the * links that don't help Currently no affil links.
