Who is my Eye Safe Driver?

Not everyone can drive on Eye Safe. We care deeply about complying with the regulation and government’s licensing requirements. Thus, every single driver who gets access to the Eye Safe platform has a licence to driver either a private hire vehicle or a taxi cab (the so called “hackney carriage”) complying with every requirement the council has for them and has had to learn and comply with the Eye Safe code of Conduct. By doing this we try to make sure the best drivers are always available to you!

What type of services are available at Eye safe?

When ordering through Eye Safe you will gain access to the following types of rides which are listed below by type of vehicle, type of service and depending on the in-ride extras that our drivers can offer

Types of Vehicles:  

  • MEye Taxi: established government licensed taxis.
  • MEye Standard: Affordable private hire vehicles operated and hailed through an operator company.

  • In-vehicle Wi-fi: our wi-fi enabled vehicles are fit for the 21st century digital needs.
  • Fitted child-seat: the safety of your children is also our priority, thus to bring you peace of mind request child-seats in your ride.

What is my ETA, where can I see it, and can I share it?

We know you care about how long the trip is going last and how long it is going to take you to get where you want you go. That’s why we provide you with an ETA (estimated time of arrival) for your driver to pick you up and an ETA for your arrival to your point of destination.

The ETA for the driver will be first shown in the initial quote sent to you by a driver when you request a service, so we can help you to decide on the fastest and closest option. We then show you the ETA of your driver in the map where you can see his/her location relative to yours. Finally, we will also show you your ETA relative to your destination during your ride, where you can also share it with your friends and/or family.

Can I cancel a ride?

We understand that sometimes things do not work as planned and that you may need to cancel a ride you have already requested.

You can cancel from your app but depending on the situation a cancellation fee may apply. If you want to know more about our cancellation fees, please check our Terms and Conditions.

How do I get rated and how can I rate my drivers?

For Eye Safe to work properly we have developed a differential mutual rating system that allows both drivers and riders to rate each other in two areas: service and safety (the two driving forces for us to create the platform).

When rating for service we allow you to decide, using a 5-star system, to decide how good was the service your driver provided and for them to rate how good of a customer you were.

If you or your driver decide to rate each other with less than 4-stars, will we request you to fill a comment box with details of the ride and with a bit of information for us to be able to improve your experience in the next ride.

We also want you to rate each other by the feeling of safety you both had and created on each other during the ride.

This is to help us maintain our service as safe as possible and to educate our users (both riders and drivers) in how they can help us make Eye Safe better every day.

The safety rating scale is based on emoticons that describe and relate to how you felt in the ride: The lowest being report driver, followed by worried, room for improvement and finally in safe hands. We will ask you to fill a comment box if you rate the ride to be “Room for improvement” or below.

What happens if I get reported by a driver?

When you get reported by a driver, we will review the reasons they state in the comments they add to your report rider form.

During the time it takes us to review the issue that caused them to report you, we will suspend your account.

If we find that you committed gross misconduct that putted the driver or other users at risk, we will revoke your access to the Eye Safe platform and system and may report you to the competent authorities

How can I get a receipt of my ride?

You will be sent receipts to the e-mail address you used to create your account at the end of each ride.

The receipts of your Family and Business can be sent to a different e-mail address, which you can add when you create the profiles on MEye Wallet.
