Mar 20, 2015 You deserve better than surge pricing Posted in BLOG, News, by GetTaxi team

At Gett we are all about simplicity!  With a $10 flat charge anywhere between Houston to 59th St and super competitive pricing everywhere else in New York, we make every ride simple and enjoyable for our customers.

Where other car services don’t fix a thing, we do! This includes our peak time price.  Since we have the best pricing in all of NYC, the $10 peak time charge was introduced to help manage our supply/demand. If you find yourself traveling during peak hours, a $10 flat charge may be added to your fare.

You will see the peak time charge before you confirm the booking and you will never be charged if you choose to cancel. Think of it like traveling on the MetroNorth or NJTransit. If you chose to travel during a peak period you pay a fixed higher amount for your ticket.  If you are flexible on your travel time, just check the Gett app an hour later and the peak time will most likely be gone!

If you’ve booked a car with one of our competitors during a surge period you will know that the final price is completely variable and you could be stung with 2x or 3x the original fare you were quoted.  That’s how an airport ride could become $200-$300.  Unlike surge pricing which is a multiplier on an already unknown amount, our peak time pricing is a flat and predictable $10, and capped at $10 even if you go to the airport.

We are committed to keeping the Gett service professional, friendly and fantastic value for money so we plan to keep our peak time pricing to a minimum. Simple, predicable, flat pricing, DONE!  Now go conquer the world!

Mar 17, 2015 Happy St Patrick's Day Posted in BLOG, News, by GetTaxi team

A St Patrick’s Day challenge for you….say the following without an Irish accent “Top of the mornin to ya”, “what’s the craic”, “me mammy and me daddy” yeah we failed too!

Today Gett are celebrating our inner Irish by turning all our social media pages green and giving away coupons for future Gett rides. “How will the luck of the Irish be on me to get one of these coupons” I hear you cry (in an Irish accent). Well, we’ve planted five lucky leprechauns in five of ours cars today only. If you find one of these, we have to say exceptionally cute, leprechauns in your car and tweet us a photo @gett and we’ll send you a code for $30 off your next ride.

If you’re heading out to the NYC parade today and then onto one of the many midtown Irish bars for the yearly traditional guinness – which is obviously standard for Paddy’s day! Look out for a Gett beer coaster. It has a special code on it with $10 off your first Gett ride to make sure you gett home safe tonight.

So today, pick up pint of guinness, dance the Irish jig and let Gett drive you home safely.

Enjoy the celebrations!
