The Easy Way To Hail A Taxi

Hey NYC, hailing a taxi will be MUCH easier when Hailo rolls into town.

Hailo is a FREE app that you can download to your smartphone and with just 2 taps, you can hail a taxi.

Founded in London by 3 taxi drivers and Internet Entrepreneurs, they have revolutionized the hail.

Here’s how easy it is to use:

Tap to open the app on your phone. Your phone will detect where your location is or you can plug in where you are and where you are going and then hail the taxi. It will tell you when the taxi will arrive, who the driver is and how you can contact them.

Once it’s confirmed, it will track the driver as they are approaching and when they have arrived. Your payment is via credit card and the receipt will be emailed to you. EASY!!!

Hailo is available on the iTunes App Store and Google Play and can be used in any of their sister cities (Barcelona, Boston, London. Madrid, Toronto, Dublin, Tokyo, Chicago). Simply search for “Hailo”. Hailo is the world’s highest-rated taxi app, with 6,000 five star reviews, and is used by 20,000 drivers and a quarter of a million registered passengers.

Picture it, you’re in a taxi multi-tasking and leave your phone, wallet, shopping bag or whatever in a taxi. You can use this app to contact the driver directly or Hailo to track down the driver and retrieve your lost item. GENIUS.

Cheapeats has personally used this app in London and Boston, and LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

To entice you, Hailo is offering Cheapeaters  an opportunity to download this app and receive a $10 credit towards their first ride in NYC.  Take advantage of this opportunity. 

REMEMBER – Besides  NYC, use you can also use  this app in London, Dublin, Barcelona, Boston, Chicago, Madrid, Tokyo, Toronto…with more cities to come.

NYC launch will be in a few weeks – “You have to be in it to win it.” 🙂

Happiness, $25 and under.
