While traveling in Europe I try to use public transportation whenever possible, however sometimes a taxi is the best option for a time-sensitive trip. A new Finnish start-up booking service called Cabforce offers taxi services in 25 European cities. Users can book and pay for taxis on the company’s website or through free smartphone apps. The virtual process can help to eliminate the hassles of finding a cab and then negotiating with the driver. While easy and efficient, Cabforce is generally more expensive than simply hailing a taxi or finding one at a taxi stand.
The only European-wide taxi booking service of its kind, Cabforce may be your best option for airport transfers, in-city travel or longer suburban trips. The flat-rate pricing includes the tip, all tolls and miscellaneous fees, like those crazy baggage add-ons, weekend, night and holiday extras.
