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 Cabforce.com. In the absence of official Cabforce, Uber, Lyft and Hailo Euro Taxi is the collaborative solution for Windows Phone.
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).
