A Lewes taxi company failed to show up for an early morning booking resulting in me almost missing an early flight from Gatwick. They eventually (1h05m later) found a replacement driver from another company who I paid in full.
Any thoughts on how I can most effectively complain? They haven't attempted to communicate with me since.

Home phone is a memorable number, easily misdialled. Quite often get pissed belligerent blokes wanting a taxi. I tell them fifteen minutes and take it off the hook

@Youngster: presumably your only knowledge of Uber is the occasional Daily Mail article. Surely you realise it doesn't exist in Lewes or even Brighton.

No Uber? Not sure I want to move down from London now. What's wrong with catching a train to the airport?

Youngster, because of course our train service is such a thing to be trusted ;-)

@youngster
because there was no train at that time on Wednesday morning due to the strike.

A little known law which I discovered(Thanks to a taxi company in Manchester) if a taxi company gives you a time, and you have told them you are catching a flight, you are in a contract and they have to compensate you if you do not meet that flight. I haven't used it, but I do know that they must get you there if they have committed to get you there - this is why they will ask you the time of your flight.
I would look in to it, if you told them you were catching a flight.

They probably didn't turn up because they were hungover from the pub session the night before. Too many times I've got in a cab at 7:45am to be welcomed by the smell of beer on the drivers breath. How do they get away with it?

4 out of the top 5 channels showing the same thing nearly all day. Somewhat excessive.
Got up this morning and the BBC is still... more
