Getting a cab at a Kenyan airport at ungodly hours of the morning can be frightening, especially if you’re new in the country, your hotel as no airport pick-up services, have no specific cab guy and don’t know where you’re going.
If you fall in that category, aggressive cab guys (or girls) with every accent you’ve ever come across from around the world will try to impress you and take you home or wherever you plan to go but not at a friendly price!
Kenya’s online travel agency Travelstart and Easy Taxi, a taxi hailing firm have signed a deal that will see you book for both your flight and taxi on the same site.
“Being dropped off by a friend or family member inconveniences the other person due to the long transit time especially on the way back. Taking a taxi typically costs too much. This partnership seeks to alleviate this problem.” said Bryan Kariuki, Country Manager, Travelstart Kenya.
With Easy Taxi passengers have access to a convenient, safe, and reliable ride each and every time.Similarly, EasyTaxi is proud to partner with Travelstart to provide a convenient transport solution wherever you are. This collaboration will get travellers KSH500 off their taxi to the airport and another KSH 500 off their ride from the airport.
A user heads to www.travelstart.co.ke to book their flights. Then sends an email to [email protected] to receive their voucher and then after printing it, you download the Easy Taxi application on your smartphone, open the app to detect your location then request a taxi to and from the airport. After you type in your address, use any number for street number, give the voucher to your Easy Taxi driver and get 500 Ksh Off.
