Sep 8, 2014 Win tickets to On Blackheath + a free GetTaxi ride to the festival for you & your pals Posted in BLOG, Competition, News, Social, by GetTaxi team

Hello troops.

Summer might be on the way out but we can still cling on to what’s left of festival season. And what better way for it to go out with a bang, than by combining two of our favourite hobbies; listening to music and eating (of course, riding in Black Cabs is up there too!)

We’ve paired up with On Blackheath, South East London’s biggest music and food festival taking place this weekend, to offer you the chance to win one of our best prizes to date.

All you need to do is follow/like us, share your favourite festival photo mentioning #GetBH on Twitter or Facebook and you could win FIVE (yes, five) Sunday tickets to On Blackheath, as well as a free GetTaxi ride there for you and your friends. Woohoo!

With the Sunday boasting some top notch acts such as Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls, Imelda May and Athlete, this is one festival you don’t wanna miss. If you really want to push the boat out, you can even pre-book a slap-up meal from a whole host of famous chefs in-between dancing your lil’ socks off. Well, you’ve got to eat some time, so why not make it special?

Just head over to Twitter or Facebook now and dig out your best festival pics to win. It’ll be the easiest thing you’ve ever done to get your hands on free festival tickets.

We’re picking the winner on Friday afternoon (12th September) so you’ve got five days to get involved.

Be there, or be mehhhh.

Jul 31, 2014 Too hot to trot so have £20 off Posted in BLOG, GetTaxi Service Update, News, Social, by GetTaxi team

Hello Summer. Hello heatwave.

We know this weather can be tough. Nobody wants to get on a sweaty tube or a jammed-up-against-the-window bus with someone’s hairy armpit pressed drastically close to your… I doubt you need me to continue. It sucks and we sympathise with you.

That’s why we’re giving all those that’ve never ridden with us £20 off this August. It’s our way of showing you love. And saving you from the wrath of the Central Line.

No strings. There’s no terms, conditions or * at the bottom of this blog post. Honestly, you can check. It’s quite straightforward. If you’ve never taken a ride with GetTaxi before, download the app, enter your special coupon code in the menu ‘aug20b’, book a taxi and pay for the first ride using your free £20 credit. Winning.

So if you haven’t downloaded GetTaxi, DO IT NOW!

Your £20 credit is only redeemable from now and throughout August, expiring on the 31st so don’t wait around.

And if one present wasn’t enough, then here – have another (Christmas is four months away after all). If you’ve heard about our Invite Friends scheme before, you’ll know you can make up to £500 by inviting your friends to download and ride with GetTaxi. Not anymore.

Now you can make up to a grand just by inviting your mates! That’s £1000… sooooo much money.

Just tap the little blue sweet icon at the top of your screen in the app and share your unique code with your friends. Once they take their first GetTaxi ride using your code, they’ll get £10 off and you’ll get £10 credit. With so much money up for grabs, there isn’t a better day to join.

So download GetTaxi onto your phone now, claim your free £20 and start inviting all your mates to keep the money building. With £1000 credit, you can say goodbye to tubes and buses. Hurrah.
