Commentary: Do Not Gett This Taxi App, It's A Rip Off!

Our Airbnb host sent me a link for a taxi app to use in Tel Aviv. The name of the app is Gett and they promised 100 Shekels in discounts, 20 Shekels for the first five rides, if you use the app and pay with a credit card.

I was extremely disappointed with Gett from the get-go, having failed to apply the promised 20 Shekel discount for our ride from the airport top central Tel Aviv even though I booked the cab using a credit card as advertised. The 134 Shekel "fixed price" ended up being 168 Shekels, another deception, so I contacted them to find out what happened. All they could do is say "oops" and offered to deduct the driver's tip from the total, which I refused to do. I thought of filing a complaint with the Israeli Ministry of Transport, but it was probably not worth the effort. A post on my popular blog will have much more impact!

We will not be using the Gett app again, so sheruts (shared taxis) and buses will be our mode of transport from now on. The only problem being that I could find nothing official on sheruts (routes or reservations in particular) and little on the Tel Aviv bus system online with many of the websites in Israel being quite atrocious, a very surprising revelation.
