Kabbee is London’s first minicab price comparison and booking service app. Comparing fares from 60 registered and highly-rated minicab firms, you can pick rides based on the cheapest price, shortest waiting time or highest user rating.
Location data helps intelligently pick services that are in your vicinty (regularly leading to cheaper rides) while factors such as passenger numbers, luggage and children needing baby seats can all be added to a booking.
Options to pay by cash or card are both supported, while a pre-paid service can be set up so that you’ve always got money in your Kabbee account. We’d imagine a pre-paid service will be particularly useful after a heavy night on the town sees you misplace your wallet. No-one likes waiting in the rain for a smelly night bus, do they?
“By taking advantage of our background in the cab industry and looking at the recent research, we have developed an app that delivers what people in the industry want – a safe, secure and value for money minicab service, no matter where they are in London. We have launched in London first and we’ll be rolling out across the UK in 2011,” said Kabbee’s Philip Makinson.
Available for free from the App Store for iPhone and iPods, you can also access the service from other mobile devices using their web portal at www.kabbee.com. An Android version will be launching in July.
