I really wish I had a good story but it was a simply missing the last step and no alcohol involved.

So more of the same today, no taxis available. Tried Premier Taxis and it was exactly the same with them. Surely if you are a Taxi company you display your booking number prominently? Not these guys, buried deep within the site.

Anyway after 45 mins eventually got one and made my appointment.

3 more weeks and I can ride the motorbike again. I can't wait.


Ah forgot to drop this link here: http://www.taxisingapore.com/taxi-booking/

Save this number in your speed dial: Dial-A-Cab 6342 5222
This number will link you to any available taxi company, although most of the time I often got linked to Comfort and City Cab.

- A bit of a hit to the wallet, but wonder if you'll have more luck on advanced booking if you prepared to cough up the extra $5 on booking fee to save the time and frustration ?!?

Once I had luck with the transcab app when comfort and smrt failed, in case you want to give that a try tomorrow.

I'm now armed with additional apps and phone numbers.

Let's see how that goes.

Thanks all. :)
