Hi Pete, I'm not sure what about  my post you didn't get. To clarify, three taxi drivers refused to take me to W4 from LHR. When I asked why, the coordinator told me they have the power to refuse jobs that aren't profitable enough. I've never experienced this before and asked what has changed and I got no response. Thing is, as I was getting off the plane and realised how awful I was feeling I had the thought to quickly order an Uber for convenience but went to the taxi rank instead as I had not used Uber before and wasn't clear on how or if the drivers are vetted. I really wanted to spend my money on a normal taxi but they didn't want my business. I feel for the drivers as I know it's a fiercely competitive business but I also was feeling ill and shattered and my concern for them ran out at the point they were happy to leave me stranded and pushing me to the arms of their competitors.

I appreciate all the feedback about telling them I'm going to Brentford etc and then changing but to be honest I can't be bothered with all the cloak and dagger. I just want a straightforward no-hassle service especially after a 10hr flight. Uber still concerns me because there is so  much I don't know about it. In the future I'll probably try to do better advance planning and book a ride with Chiswick Express as I trust them.
