Got somewhere to be this Christmas? Whether you want to go shopping, attend a Christmas party, witness traditional Scott Christmas events, or tour attractions this holiday, booking early is the key to secure a taxi. Leave in plenty of time to get to your destination. Plan your itinerary ahead and pre-book your taxi to beat the crowds and avoid any disappointments.When paying in cash, be sure to prepare the exact amount because some drivers can ran out of change, most especially when other customers before you paid ahead with credit cards.
3. Set a Destination
As you plan ahead, make sure that you don’t change the destination you declared when pre-booking. This will save both of you and the driver from rerouting amidst the traffic.Setting a destination will also let drivers know where you’re going. It helps them plan the best routes to take most especially that festivals are being held in almost every street. So define your destination and keep the service running smoothly for everyone.
4. Set a Pickup
Like setting your destination, you should also set your pickup location and don’t change it when the driver is already near your originally declared pickup point. Tap the GPS icon or set your Pick up before hailing to make sure your location is correct and the driver knows exactly where you will be.
5. Add a Profile Picture
It’s not that you will be unsafe when you share your photo with an Inverness taxi booking app because this will help them recognize you in the crowd. So help your driver pick you out from the crowd faster this festive period by adding a photo to your Inverness Taxis app profile.
6. Ride Share with a Friend
If you have plans to go out on Christmas and your neighbor is too, you can talk about sharing a ride with them when going to the city. Sharing a ride with another passenger will not only get you a cheaper fare, you’ll help keep the streets less congested too! Just make sure that you are sharing a ride with someone you know.Taxis around Inverness can be very busy during the festive season.
