GetTaxi launches flat fare deal

Black cab link-up with app.

GetTaxi, the global taxi app that works exclusively with black cabs, has announced the launch of £5 fixed price rides anywhere within central Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Leeds, Birmingham and Glasgow. All rides within the centre of these cities will cost just £5 regardless of traffic or time.

Users will get a popup in the app before booking if the £5 fare applies, providing the destination is entered, card payment is chosen and the journey is direct.

Black cabs provide the safest and most reliable way to travel around and locals in each of these six cities should have easy access to a service that gets them from A to B quickly. Unlike other services, GetTaxi works exclusively with Black cabs, which are all licensed and fully regulated. All GetTaxi drivers have the reputable knowledge of the local roads and undergo thorough CRB and medical checks.

“There’s not much you can get for £5 these days which is why we’re thrilled to offer everyone in in the centre of Liverpool, Manchester, Edinburgh, Leeds, Birmingham and Glasgow, Black Cab rides at this fantastic fixed price”
says Remo Gerber, CEO of GetTaxi UK. “Users simply need to download the GetTaxi app, register their card and enter their pickup and destination to get a safe, reliable Black Taxi on the way. Getting around town has never been easier.”

GetTaxi riders who qualify for the £5 fare will get a popup confirmation in the app before booking. Riders must enter their destination and choose card payment to be eligible. Future bookings can also be scheduled up to two weeks in advance.
