May 14, 2015 Gett out this summer with London Life Hacks Posted in BLOG, Social, by GetTaxi team

We know you’re an adventurous bunch, I mean you’re reading this blog! Here are some things we think you should Gett out and do this summer:

1. Feeling like you’re not in the city can be really really nice. Getting out on the water really helps with that. Try Finsbury Park to tootle around in a little rowboat or Hyde park for pedal boats. It’s good for you, right?

2. Outdoor exercise is the only way to exercise, especially when it’s beautiful outside. If you’re a rollerblader you can join in a group skate around London every Fridays at 8 and Sundays at 2 at Hyde park. Oh yes, and we’re ready to pick you up if you take a spill or are too exhausted to face stairs on the underground.

3. There are a ton of free things to see in do in London, so don’t miss out on the British Museum, the National Gallery and the Tate Modern for a start. Free is good. Also check out this list of museum night events for a twist on the museum experience.

4. Rooftop bars. When the local pub just won’t cut it you’ve got to hit the roof. Here’s a great list of places to try from TimeOut.

5. The BFI Southbank has all sorts of films to keep you entertained. New and old it’s all there and definitely a good rainy day activity. Watch out for their concerts as well!

Just tap the app and you can Gett anywhere you need to go this summer! <3 Gett

Apr 30, 2015 Google Now Partners with Gett: More of the right information, just when you need it Posted in Behind The Scenes, BLOG, GetTaxi Service Update, News, Social, Technologies, by GetTaxi team

London, April 2015: Leading global taxi app, Gett today announces that they will be partnering with Google to serve a Now card in the Google app.

Gett is the world’s leading on-demand Black Taxi app that lets you instantly book a ride with your mobile phone. The company has taxis across three continents in 30 cities including New York, London, Tel Aviv and Moscow. In August 2014, Gett announced the closing of a $150 million funding round.

Google Now cards aim to provide helpful assistance throughout your day, in the form of personal answers and helpful voice actions. Now cards give you useful, relevant information and updates at suitable times which correlate to your lifestyle and schedule. This could be anything from reminding you about your shopping list, giving you your flight status or booking your taxi ride.

Google Now offers third parties the ability to integrate with Google to fulfil more of its users’ needs, with Gett being selected as one of the latest partners for this feature. Google are making Now cards even more useful by integrating with new partners across a number of on demand services. This means if you have the Gett app installed, when you take a Gett ride, a Now card will appear enabling you to instantly book your return journey. You will also be given suggested taxi routes through the Now cards. Simply tap the Google app icon on your Android device to start seeing helpful cards.

All this information comes from the apps you have downloaded on your mobile device. Rather than having to access all of your different apps to find this information, Now cards will give you it all in one convenient app without even having to search for it.
