I kid, but sometimes with all the various modes of transport I consider daily just to get from A to B within London it does feel like what a threesome might feel like: EXHAUSTING. (Or not? Tell me in the comments) (OMG PLEASE BE DESCRIPTIVE)

I don’t tend to write much about apps, not because I pride in some strict editorial integrity (heck I’ll write about adult diapers if it’s awesome), but this time I’ve quite genuinely stopped using all other taxi apps and moved onto Karhoo. So this post, effectively, is me saving myself from a week-or-so of embarrassing fan-nerding on Twitter, like I did when Deliveroo was on the rise. It’s everything you thought you need in a cab comparison app in one – pre-booking, real-time car tracking, post-trip rating, service levels, and choice from multiple cab companies – they even list taxi numbers in cities they haven’t yet launched in. Here’s three ways I use and abuse.

One of the last operational postcard London services since red phone boxes became entrances to The Ministry of Magic

I may have lamented a few times before, how I – despite having eyeballs – decided it was clever to jump into a black cab in grid-lock traffic, but aside from this genius making genius decisions – it still stands that London Black Taxis is the best choice when it comes to whizzing around within Central London for meetings. If not for the fact that you’re jumping into postcard London, then the thrill of cackling at others while you race through on the bus lane. Karhoo just modernises the whole experience really: summoning, tracking, quick automatic payments…

Isn’t it all about survival of the fittest, at the end of the day?

Contrary to popular belief, the London Underground is an asshole when you have a suitcase and a plane/train to catch. Especially in the morning and after-work hours, and even more so if you have to change at Bank Station. For some years I’ve been counting the taxi fare to the airport/station as part of the general travel budget and relishing the fact that I did not die of stress on the cusp of reaching paradise-on-earth or somewhere beachy at least. And FINALLY I can pre-book with Karhoo and avoid the poop-in-pants situation I normally get into after forgetting to book a car for stupid-o’clock, yay.

Alfred, call me a Karhoo

Since we don’t live in Gossip Girl world and nobody really owns a limo, this is the closest I believe I can get to hitching meself a Chuck Bass. The exec level has been my friend in times of 1) presentable arrivals at events (friend’s kid’s birthdays count, right?) and 2) extreme tipsiness when you suddenly feel like you can afford a swanky ride because you just found £5 in your clutch from the last time you were out.

  5. I cannot stand black can drivers. And their prices…how on Earth a young girl could afford a can ride home at 3am in a black cab? For that reason I love Uber. I’ll check out your recommendation!

  7. This was incredible, Shini! So well sought out, written, captured, everything! Also, ARE YOU POOR?! Who doesn’t have their own limo?

    That’s all.

  8. Once again, I commend you on creating such high-quality, original content. If you blogged about adult diapers, I’d no doubt be in as much awe of your work (though, maybe a little confused at today’s current trends, hehe).

    I have loved and adored Uber since I began using it during my travels all those years ago, but Karhoo sounds absolutely brilliant, especially with the London traffic. It’s apps like these that i always hope will be successful just so they eventually come to my city.

  11. I love the lay out of your photos and words, you put a lot of effort here, it is amazing.

  12. I’m not sure Karhoo is available in the States (I’ll look into it after this), but if it’s not I’m already disappointed. Aside from that I always fall in love with the layout of your posts!

    Also, the fact that you don’t use an iPhone has me in perpetual heart eyes right now lol

    Thanks for such a great reading experience!

  14. In my experience of using Karhoo, they have always provided great service, much like Uber! Although, I’m more of an Apple fan myself, so the apps on Android (to me) are nowhere near as smooth and easy-to-use as iOS make them. That said, threesomes are not as tiring as you may think!

    I love the pictures in this post, so detailed and well-taken Shini! Keep up the fantastic work!
