India’s leading travel search application, iXigo has announced the launch of ‘1-Tap Cab Booking’ service that would allow users to book the nearest available cab by a single tap of a button on users’ home screens. 1-Tap cab booking is presently available on Android. Its main benefit is that it allows users to book even without a strong and reliable internet connection-Even if the user is at public places such as buses, airports, rail stations, he can conveniently book taxis use this application.
Booking a cab can be a very tiring process especially since first customer is required to log into individual taxi service websites, check the expected time of arrivals of cabs, and then do the price comparison. iXigo’s new service will help in cutting down the booking time and make it a hassle-free process. As per iXigo, a taxi can be booked under just about three seconds using the 1-Tap Cab Booking service. The app is able to retrieve customer location information by making use of PNR information on user’s phones and Smses (It doesn’t really matter how strong the Internet connection is, or whether if it even exists). The app also prompts users prior to their journey by train or plane, and reconfirms before he/she arrives at the destination.
Ever since it was launched iXigo has become the single largest meta-aggregator of information related to cabs, autos and other ground transportation services. Customers can easily book through Taxiforsure, Ola, Jugnoo and Easycabs using the iXigo application.
