By Luke Vrkic on 19/06/2017 9:29:00 AM

Leave the car at home on your next night out and get home safely

By Luke Vrkic on 09/06/2017 2:55:00 PM

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.
