Planning the big night out in town?
Ireland’s largest taxi fleet have offered some handy advice on how to make your journey to and from the Christmas party as seamless as possible.
As we approach Saturday, December 14th, when demand for taxis peaks in the run-up to Christmas, FREE NOW’s General Manager for UK and Ireland, Alan Fox, says the key to smart traveling over the festive period lies in planning ahead.
Mr Fox encouraged app users to “travel outside the busiest times of 6pm and 9pm and around 1am at the weekends” to find a cab faster.
He also recommends using the Match feature on the FREE NOW app to pair up with other passengers and get a cheaper fare home. Waiting five minutes after requesting a Match will increase your chances of finding another passenger headed in the same direction.
There’s a handy safety feature to make use of if you’re travelling alone too:
“FREE NOW’s drivers know the streets like the back of their hands and passengers can use our Share my Journey feature which allows passengers to share their trip through platforms such as WhatsApp to let friends and family know where you are if you are going home.” says Mr Fox.
