With app-stores across all platforms now seemingly crowded with numerous taxi apps it can become a bit of a challenge when deciding which one is for you. Apps such as Uber and Hailo all have their pros and cons but after much deliberation we believe we can now crown Minicabster king of the taxi apps! The deciding factor for us was the ability to pre-book (unavailable on apps such as Hailo) as well as the ultra-handy price comparison screen where several different SET prices are laid out in-front of you allowing you to pick the cheapest/most convenient! Check below for some more info.
A new way to order a taxi has arrived with Minicabster!
After a very successful start in London, Minicabster, the leading price-comparison and booking app for ordering a taxi, is launching the service across the UK. Wherever you are in London, Manchester or Birmingham you can use this handy app to get around the city. Unlike any other service, Minicabster boasts it’s prices are up to 50% cheaper than black cabs and airport taxis, and wants to bring fair prices and reliable travel to the UK.
Say goodbye to phoning around to get the best price for a cab, the Minicabster app does it for you by comparing all of the most reliable, local cab firms in your area. When you see a quote you like, you can read through real customer reviews before booking through the app. You can even choose how you would like to pay for your journey, cash to the driver or securely by card.
Minicabster has become a really popular way of booking a taxi, not only because you can ensure you’re always getting the best price, but because you can guarantee a safe ride as all of the companies on Minicabster are fully licensed.
Minicabster was founded in 2011 by British entrepreneur Brooke Pursey, and has seen superb growth every year since – with a service currently boasting over 200,000 users. The app focused tech company is backed by high profile investors including David Buttress, CEO of JUST EAT, Daniel McPherson, Founder of Launcha, and Tom Singh, Founder of New Look.
Brooke Pursey, Founder of the taxi-app said: “All minicabs on our system are fully-licensed and their drivers are regularly vetted by our dedicated team. Many vehicles have GPS tracking and our Minicabster promise guarantees punctuality – unlike other minicab apps, if a car is more than 15 minutes late, we offer our customers a 30% refund on their journey fare. This guarantee enables us to provide customers with a high quality experience and peace of mind”.
