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!
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.
Etiquette rules apply to almost any social norm you can think of, yet they may differ all over the world. There are even etiquette guidelines that apply when you book a taxi in Sydney or elsewhere in Australia.
Travelling safely and efficiently for work is something that affects businesses and employees all over Australia, but no more so than in our busy capital cities. It’s crucial that business travel, whether it is locally for meetings, or to and from the airport for more distant travel, is managed efficiently, planned ahead, and receipted properly.
We’ve talked in past articles about why taxis are such a great way to travel, and we’ve explained why the ingogo app is such an innovation in taxi booking in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide. More and more passengers are discovering for themselves how beneficial ingogo is and how convenient it can be to book, track, and pay for your fixed fare taxi instantly via your smartphone.
