It's hard to remember what life was like before GrabTaxi. We'll dial into a taxi hotline, get put on hold for 15 minutes, only to be told: "There are no taxis available now. Please try again later." Thankfully, those days of futile waiting are over. With taxi-hailing app GrabTaxi, you get to summon drivers across all taxi operators plying the vicinity — all with a single tap.
GrabTaxi started in 2011 with the aim to revolutionise the taxi industry in Southeast Asia and we have to say that they've done just that and more. No longer just a taxi-hailing app, those who commute on two wheels have the option to enjoy the same convenience through GrabBike, the motorcycle arm of GrabTaxi. So if you need to hop onto a bike in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Bangkok and Jakarta, you know just where to look.
The only thing that trumps finding a cab when you need it is getting a discount on your ride. From now till 14 September, simply punch in the promotional code "BURO247" when you're booking a ride to enjoy a $3 discount on your GrabTaxi or GrabCar fare*. In addition to receiving the discount, you'll also stand a chance to win a pair of tickets to the decadent Formula 1 party at Amber Lounge Singapore. The good folk at GrabTaxi will also throw in a complimentary ride to and from the party — so put on your dancing shoes and hit the dance floor with wild abandon because you won't be fighting the masses for a ride home.
