Corporate travel can be stressful at times, but a well-executed venture can secure your company new clients. The logistics of getting from A to B problem-free in an unknown city is almost as complex and time-consuming to plan as a business meeting!
Do you own a car and live in the city or inner suburbs? With cars being so expensive to run, the chances are you’ve probably considered whether it’s even worth owning one. And with living costs in Australian cities rising faster than the rest of the world, now might be the time to wave goodbye to your wheels. But would you really benefit from not owning a car or would it be a burden?
ingogo has revolutionised the taxi business for both passengers and drivers. This is a timely advancement, considering that the competition for taxis, Uber and other ridesharing services, has created a lot of buzz in the last couple of years. Yet taxis remain the better option for an array of reasons – especially when you book your taxi in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide or Perth with ingogo.
There are so many reasons why ingogo is the top notch way to travel by taxi in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. From easy app-based taxi bookings to tracking your cab and communicating by phone with your driver, to even earning Qantas Frequent Flyer points on eligible trips, you know that when you use ingogo, you’re getting the very best in service and quality that the taxi industry has to offer.
Last week we started looking at some of the world’s weirdest taxis, and here is the conclusion to that list. In the countries they are used, they aren’t weird at all, but to us in Australia who are used to the basic sedan which represents most taxis in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, these are a little eye opening to say the least!
It should go without saying that if you’re going for a celebratory night out, leaving the car at home is the best idea. Not only do you not need to worry about choosing a sober, designated driver (and relying on them to take their role seriously), but you can rest easy without being concerned about finding a parking space, paying parking fees, and potentially vacating the parking station before it closes for the night.
There are also safety concerns beyond making sure nobody is drink-driving. When you leave the car at home and book a taxi, you don’t have to walk, potentially alone, through the streets to return to your car.
So taking a taxi is the obvious answer when you go for a night out. But better than hailing just any Sydney taxi (or in whichever capital city you are in), by far the most convenient and safest option for transport on a night out is ingogo.
ingogo's taxi booking app is available in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. It allows you to pre-book a taxi on the spot or up to two days in advance. You're quoted an ingogo Fixed Fare prior to placing your booking, and you can track and contact your driver via the app. You'll be picked up as quickly as possible.
There are very few surprises when you book a taxi in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide or Perth; you know you’re getting a standard vehicle. But elsewhere in the world this isn’t necessarily the case.
If you are a business, there will almost certainly be times when you need to arrange transportation for your employees. This may be for attendance at meetings, conferences, or any other business travel purpose. Sometimes it may be by air, but most times transport will require a taxi.
Empowering our passengers and drivers to build better connections and enhance their experiences has been a goal for us at ingogo for some time. Being able to give passengers the ability to favourite drivers when you have a fantastic trip in an ingogo taxi so you can request them again on your next trip or if you have a poor experience, let us know immediately so we can address the issue.
While a Sydney taxi (or one anywhere in Australia for that matter) is usually quite comfortable, we don’t have a unique and instantly recognisable taxi design. This is not the case everywhere; some places have very notable taxi designs, and perhaps the most iconic, instantly recognisable taxi in the world is the London Black Cab.
