Need a taxi in Europe? Book an affordable ride with Euro Taxi for Windows Phone

Euro Taxi LEad

We've all been there. You arrive into a new country or find yourself in a city where you need a taxi (or cab) but can't seem to get hold of one or have some difficulty in getting to the necessary points and locate a free driver. This is where Euro Taxi for Windows Phone comes into play. Instead of faffing about with multiple cards and numbers, simply make a booking while on the go at standard rates. Easy.

Supported in 70 European and three US cities (New York, Miami and Boston), Euro Taxi is a handy companion for those who travel around and find themselves needing a ride in multiple parts of the world. The team behind the app have partnered with In the absence of official Cabforce, Uber, Lyft and Hailo Euro Taxi is the collaborative solution for Windows Phone.

Euro Taxi

All that's required to get cracking is a pickup location with a specified date and time, destination and select which type of vehicle you require - be it a taxi, minibus or executive car. The app boasts an average saving of 13 percent on airport transfers as it's a flat rate service. There's also a cancellation policy, which makes it safe to book and cancel two hours prior to the pickup time. No charges are applied for each booking.

While numerous cities are already covered by the app (check the description on the store for the complete list), the team notes they're looking to add more as time progresses. So fear not if the location you're heading to (or reside at) isn't covered just yet. Speaking of support and coverage, the app also looks great, sporting an easy and intuitive interface. There's not a whole lot to Euro Taxi, but it's worth picking up.

You can download Euro Taxi from the Windows Phone Store for free (available for both Windows Phone 7 and 8).

Now is may be useful need more useful apps on wp8 example account apps for all carriers ie Vodafone 3 o2 virgin and we need more apps for banks two these are apps ios and android have that we don't come on Microsoft!

Too expensive. Wants to charge you £12 for a ride you wouldn't normaly pay more than £5. GOODBYE!

Terrible app. Pointless. Waste of time. Not practical. It was looking £52 for a £7 trip. Some real life things will never be integrated into phone. Get off your phone once a while and look around you, go outside the airport and get a local taxi

We need the likes of Cordic to adapt their apps for WP.  They do a lot of the specialised apps for local taxi firms.  For example, local to me is Hamden Cabs, they've got an iPhone and Android app (by Cordic) and it actually works really well.  You can follow your taxi on the map and you often get a taxi dispatched quicker than if you phoned.
