Taxi-booking app Hailo arrives in Galway City

23 Jul 2013

Grabbing a taxi may have just gotten easier in Galway, now that taxi-booking app Hailo has gone live in the city, a mere few weeks after having arrived in Cork.

“Just in time for the Galway Races, over 150 drivers have already signed up with Hailo (that’s 20pc of drivers in Galway!),” Hailo Ireland said.

To celebrate the app now being in action in Galway, Hailo is offering free taxi fares during the Galway Races. All first-time users of Hailo in Galway can get €10 off their first fare, using the promotional code ‘GALWAY01’, once they sign up and register a credit or debit card. Then they just have to choose ‘Pay With Card’ when hailing their cab to use their voucher.

This offer will be available until midnight on Saturday, 31 August.   

The brand is also running a competition on Twitter where users can win daily prizes of up to €10 extra Hailo credit for themselves and a friend by tweeting who they are going to catch a taxi with during race week.

Hailo is available for free from the App Store and Google Play, and will soon be coming to Limerick.
