The cab booking sector is dominated by Ola and Uber
Booking a cab is proving expensive these days due to various reasons
Here we are going to tell you about Ola and Uber alternatives.
New Delhi. In metropolitan cities like New Delhi, auto and cab prices are constantly increasing. Prices continue to rise in the new year. There are many reasons behind this, such as the rise in oil prices and the weakness of the rupee against the dollar. Apart from this, the prices of cabs and autos often increase according to the traffic conditions of the city. There is no easy way to deal with this at this point. Currently Ola and Uber especially dominate this sector.
Now slowly new platforms are coming out. One such platform is InDrive (formerly InDriver). It works like Ola and Uber. Users can book autos and cabs through this app. It was first launched in Yakutsk. It is a city in Russia. The company later expanded to 47 countries. The company is currently headquartered in California. The company made its debut in New Delhi in November last year.
InDrive app can be downloaded from Google Play Store and Apple App Store. This app has been downloaded more than 100 million times worldwide from Google Play.
How to use the app:
Only mobile number is required to sign up this app. This app can be used in Hindi, Bengali, Urdu and English. Like Ol and Uber, this app also requires entering the location for pick-up and drop. This app uses Google Maps for location. Due to which locations are also easily available.
Here’s how you can find cheap cabs:
As users add location. InDrive calculates and informs the fare. It can also be discussed. For example, if the fare from point A to B is Rs.200 and the user wants to pay only Rs.150. So the user has to enter this price. Then the app shows drivers Rs.150. In this case, if a driver is ready at this price, he can take the booking. After that, users can call the nearest driver for pick-up. In this case some money can be saved. But, this is not possible every time.
