- Exclusive discounts on fares
- Guaranteed pre-bookable journeys at peak times
- Free upgrades to executive vehicles
- Invitations and access to VIP tickets for a range of premium London events
To coincide with the launch of Club Lee, customers will also have the chance to tally up their loyalty points through the new version of the Addison Lee App, which is currently available to download for free from the Apple Store and Google Play Market. The update, designed to make the Addison Lee booking experience even easier, includes the following enhancements:

Devised to pick-up a customer straight from their current location, the Apple Watch version of the app will be able to book journeys to a selection of frequently used addresses, track the arrival of the driver and receive a range of booking updates.
Peter Boucher, Chief Commercial Officer at Addison Lee, commented:
“As we approached our 40th birthday we have spent a long time speaking with our customers to find out how we can make using Addison Lee even better, and it was from this process that Club Lee was created. Giving our loyal customers points for their journeys that in turn give them multiple benefits was a simple step, and one I’m delighted we’ve taken.
Our long-standing client relationships are what have helped us grow the business and put us in the position we are today, so Club Lee is our way of giving something back to those customers who use us regularly.”
