    They told my wife they were in Galway and they were actually 1 1/2 away. We called them and told them we would be 10 minutes late because the person my wife talked to told her they were in Galway not that far away and they said too bad we will not wait and you will be charged the full amount. We found a great ride right in Galway though through another company.
