Reliable, Affordable Cabs Just Two Taps Away with Brand New Minicabster App
The release of the brand new Minicabster app today means that Londoners are never more than two taps away from the city’s most reliable and affordable minicabs. Packed with a range of exciting new features, the dynamic new app is set to revolutionise urban transport, and cement Minicabster as the go-to provider of minicab comparison and booking.
Built purely with the user in mind, passengers now have the ability to save their favourite addresses as tiles on the start screen so wherever they are, comparing fares is simply one tap away. Minicabster is perfect for the regular travellers as the instant quote comparison puts passengers ‘in the driving seat’, with the ability to choose what type of vehicle they’d like, what price, and even browse the operator ratings before booking.
The app's product and development was lead by Irshad Khan, Business Lead/Head of Technology at Minicabster who previously has worked for successful startups such as Just Eat, Blink Box and Adobe Shockwave. The new app was designed based on customer feedback, which overwhelmingly found that usability was one of the key criteria for the app - and the new design delivers. Ordering a cab to your location takes just two taps, and users can store their card details within the app, so there’s no need to get caught short without any cash.
Another key benefit of the app is up-front pricing – Minicabster believe in transparency, so their passengers will never be faced with an unexpected bill when they arrive at their destination. The app allows users to get a confirmation of the cost of their journey before booking, so they can find the cheapest option and know that the cab provider will honour the quote. Getting caught in traffic can be a financial nightmare when you’re in a black cab or metered cab – but Minicabster provides concrete quotes, so passengers won’t pay a penny more on arriving at their destination.
Sadie Gee, Business Lead at Minicabster says, “The new app is in perfect alignment with our company ethos – we wanted an app that was fast, convenient and reliable, with plenty of features that put our passengers first. The typical Minicabster user tends to make the same journeys regularly, so we incorporated the ‘address tiles’ into the new app, meaning wherever passengers are, they can find the price to get home with literally one tap. With Minicabster, people can compare the most reliable local providers, pre-book journeys in advance or request an immediate minicab, save their favourite journeys and get confirmed quotes. We’ve deliberately made the app as simple as possible, so getting the best deal for any journey is as easy as possible, and everyone can spend more time focusing on the more exciting things – like where they’re off to!”
The new features unveiled by Minicabster are the result of in-depth research into the demands and needs of minicab users all over the country. Up-front pricing, the ability to pre-book journeys and the option to save journeys to the app were all sought-after features for regular minicab users, and Minicabster prides itself on its ability to listen to what passengers want from the service. The brand new app addresses these basic passenger needs and provides simple solutions to each of their demands.
Gee adds, “All of the new features in the app were created with the passenger in mind – we constantly strive to ensure we offer the most reliable, punctual, and competitively priced service for our customers, from booking to arrival.”
With the launch of the new app, Minicabster has set itself firmly on the road to success, putting passengers’ needs first and listening to the feedback of existing users to ensure their service meets every demand. The truly twenty-first century travel app is now a one-stop-shop for all journeys – whether they’re for business or pleasure.
