Get Taxi has promised the low fares for customers travelling from Manchester in one of their 220 cabs in direct competition with Uber and Hailo

Get Taxi has launched £5 fares

Manchester city centre’s taxi wars are continuing with a new price battle – as a new black cab app promises five pound fares.

Get Taxi has promised all fares will be no more than a fiver and customers can travel from the city centre as far as Old Trafford, Fallowfield and parts of Salford in one of their 220 cabs.

The company, which launched in 2010, is set to provide competition for similar apps Uber and Hailo, and has not set an end date for their introductory offer.

They each operate by serving customers who are registered with their mobile app, and can hail the taxis using their phone, paying automatically from their bank accounts.

Remo Gerber, CEO of GetTaxi UK, said: “We want to let everyone in the centre of Manchester know that they can take a cab ride for just £5, so they can experience the safe and reliable service of black taxis.

“By introducing these amazing flat and fixed prices, we’re giving consumers a reason to choose black taxis over minicabs, not to mention all of our drivers are fully licensed and CRB checked.”

To take advantage of the £5 fares you must download the Get Taxi App and register a payment card.
