Available on Android and iOS smartphones, the Easy Taxi mobile app offers a convenient way for users to virtually hail a taxi to take them to their destination. By having a cab automatically assigned to them, passengers can avoid choosy cab drivers that tend to run rampant during the month of December.

“We’ve all experienced the headaches of hailing a cab during the holiday season. With this partnership from Smart and Easy Taxi, booking a taxi to take you back to your home or to any shopping mall is now just a few clicks away on your smartphone,” said Michele Curran, Data and International Services Marketing Head at Smart and Sun.

To book an Easy Taxi cab, simply open the app on your phone and choose your desired pick-up point on the map. After this, provide important details such as landmarks, your desired destination, the amount of tip to give your driver and the type of cab you want to fetch you and take you to your destination.

After clicking the “Request Taxi” button, users will immediately receive the driver’s details including the name, photo, car model, phone number, and plate number. This gives them the peace of mind that should any emergency arise during the trip, they already have the necessary information to give the authorities.

“Easy Taxi prioritizes the safety and quality of service offered to its customers by confirming that the passenger has successfully boarded the vehicle through a personal call, all the way to a feedback form after every booking,” explained Mario Berta, Regional CEO of Easy Taxi.

“With the traffic rush and safety risks during the holidays, Easy Taxi’s zero booking fee is certainly a pleasant treat for all Smart, Talk ‘N Text and Sun subscribers,” Berta added.

The convenience of taxi commuting via the Easy Taxi app is best enjoyed with Smart and Sun’s unbeatable mobile Internet surfing offers, currently the most affordable in the country today.
