99taxis is a Brazilian e-hailing application and perhaps one of the biggest in the country. If you’re in Brazil, forget Uber or Lyft; 99taxis is the way to move around. Like all cab applications, 99taxis creates a profile for you, hitches nearby riders that you can rate and read the reviews of and pay for the ride in a fair rate. 99taxis currently operates only in Brazil. It’s a free to download app from the Google Play Store and the Apple iTunes Store.
With 99taxis, you can safely move around with trusted drivers in cars or taxis. This e-hailing app offers tons of features that you can choose for yourself with regards to the type of car you’re hailing and the kind of cab service you want. This makes 99taxis more superior than Uber because you don’t have a whole of choices except the car you intend to ride in the latter.
Power of choice is what makes 99taxis a stellar application. The app lets users decide how they want to move around in the city. Available in the cab library of this app are cars with private drivers, taxis and ride that are billed to your business company through the corporate vouchers that 99taxis provides. In addition to all these features, 99taxis sends out exclusive promotions quite frequently but still not as much as Uber does.
Furthermore, the app provides online training to drivers which is a prerequisite before any driver can join the 99taxis service. Every car that is provided by 99taxis is comfortable, up to date and fully inspected before they are officially registered for providing cab services.
99taxis also keeps a close eye on the reviews and ratings that are provided to each individual driver on the platform. This helps them decide which ones to keep and which ones to work upon to better their cab hailing services.
Most e-hailing apps charge a rate that is relatively less than the standard taxi rates of the city. 99taxis also employs the same principle and provides fair and economical rates for its users. Just like in any other good e-hailing application, users get an estimate of the rate they would be expected to pay for the particular ride. This ensures transparency. One latest feature of 99taxis lets user track their ride’s price in real time so they can be fully informed of how much they will be paid once the ride has stopped.
99taxis gives out discount vouchers and promotions like candy and if you’re a loyal customer of the app, you get to enjoy even more perks. The smart-wallet of 99taxis shows you all the best discounts available. You get these discounts in the message inbox so it’s always a good idea to keep a close eye on it. However, there’s a catch. To get all these smart discount coupons and vouchers, you will need to register a credit/debit card or your PayPal account to the 99taxis app.
Overall, this e-hailing app is easy to use and has accrued some pretty great feedback remarks. It’s definitely the app to use if you reside or are visiting Brazil.
