O2 launches national minicab booking app
UK mobile phone network operator O2 has invested in a new nationwide private hire booking smartphone app. Minicabit covers 30 cities and takes quotes from a network of more than 100 fleets across the UK.
The minicabit system allows users to compare prices, make bookings and payments for pre-booked taxi journeys across the UK, for both local and long distance trips. It including quotes from licensed Private Hire Taxi operators beyond the user’s local area, and as a result, minicabit claims its comparison engine can save customers up to 30% off the cost of their trip.
The O2 venue in London has been working with minicabit for well over a year. Geoff Symonds, Director of Transport Strategy at the venue’s owners, AEG Europe, said: “We have welcomed its ‘network approach’ which has allowed us to work with our favoured minicab operators all under the minicabit brand for our customers.
“It has been great to see customers even 100 miles away use the minicabit website to attend our events, a benefit of its wide network.” The app is available now on iPhone, with Android coming soon. For more information, visit www.minicabit.com
