Feb 25, 2015 £5 Black Cab rides anywhere in central Manchester Posted in BLOG, Events, News, by GetTaxi team

If you’re in Manchester, you’re in luck because GetTaxi has just launched £5 Black Cab rides anywhere in the city centre. You can say buh-bye to your usual commute!

Whether you’re travelling from Manchester Piccadilly to Media City, Canal Street to Old Trafford, or anywhere in between, you’ll get an in-app popup message before booking if the £5 fare applies – providing the destination is entered, you’ve selected the pay by card option and the journey is direct. And time spent in traffic won’t change the £5 fare. Winning.

We like to make life easy for you which is why we’ve just launched our latest new feature in the app – the option to select a six seater Black Taxi. Now you can travel everywhere with six friends instead of five.

Open the app and head to the home screen where you’ll see the option to choose a 6 seater Vito at the top under Private Ride. Then just pick the licensed Black Taxi you need and order as usual. Super simple.

And it’s not just friends you’ll have more space for. Our six seater Black Taxis have extra leg and luggage room, making trips to the airport more relaxing and comfortable.

If you’re a newbie, here’s a quick guide on how to ride:

  • + Download the GetTaxi app on your iPhone or Android here
  • + Register your credit/debit card in the app
  • + New to GetTaxi? Use the promo code ‘hello’ for £10 off your first ride
  • + GetTaxi in a tap and invite your friends to join. They get £10 off their first ride, and you get £10 when they ride with your code

Book GetTaxi now and give it a try. Happy travels.

Feb 10, 2015 GetTaxi is now on your wrist with Android Wear Posted in BLOG, News, Social, Technologies, by GetTaxi team

For all you Android lovers out there, boy have we got a treat for you. GetTaxi now has an Android Wear app, so you can use London’s favourite Black Cab app directly from your wrist, just by talking to your wearable device (providing nobody thinks you’re crazy speaking to yourself, of course!)

You can book a licensed taxi in a matter of seconds plus get push notifications, the driver’s distance, estimated arrival time, set your destination address, pay and rate the driver, all with a simple swipe and tap gestures on the smartwatch. Getting a taxi has never been easier.

With Londoners constantly on the move, ordering a taxi has always been an on-the-go endeavour but our new Android Wear app now eliminates the extra steps of going into your pocket, especially with smartphones just getting bigger and bigger.

The GetTaxi Android Wear app is available to download on the Google Play Store and will automatically initiate on your connected Android Wear device.
