At last a competitor to Uber and a good one at that.
I thought that it would be Taxify but it turns out that I was wrong.
Ola Cabs have launched in Cardiff, Newport and the Vale of Glamorgan and will soon be launching in Greater Manchester.
They are originally from India and strangely enough one of their backers is Softbank who also invest in Uber.
Uber has 5 million customers in the UK where as Ola have 125 million outside Britain.
What’s in it for you Guys?
I won’t bore you with financial background and all that stuff.
I know that you want to know “what Ola can do for you”, so here are a few points:
- Ola works for metered Taxis and for Private hire vehicles. Yes that’s right no fighting between the two.
- Ola charge 10% commission for Metered Taxis and 15% for Private Hire Vehicles – That’s better than Uber
- There is an introductory 5% commission rebate for drivers signed up before 20 August 2018 – so don’t hang about.
- Daily Payment
- They also look like nice people but only time will tell.
Of course how much you make will depend on how much Ola charge per fare as well as the commission rate but it looks as though it’s worth getting on board.
How do you Sign up?
Simple, follow this link – https://drive.olacabs.com/
If you are a legitimately signed up Uber driver then you should meet the requirements of Ola.
As far as I am aware there is nothing to stop you from signing up for both, but if you find out differently please let me know.
Happy signing and prosperous driving
