Top 7 Must-Have Features in Your Taxi Booking App

Creating a taxi booking app is easy and as you can see it takes just three steps! However, whether your customers would love using your app or not, depends on the features that you add to your taxi booking app.

Listed below are the 7 features that you absolutely must add to your taxi booking app, if you want your target customers to get addicted to it!

  • Taxi

    What would your taxi booking app be without the taxi feature? The taxi feature lets you set up the driver and the passenger version of the app so that your passengers can book a ride on-demand and the drivers can choose which rides they are comfortable fulfilling.

  • Coupons

    The coupon feature lets you offer special deals or discounts to your clients while letting you post it on the social media for various promotional events. Apart from marketing, this feature is great for giving your sale a boost!

  • Map

    It is critical that the driver and the passenger are aware of each other’s location at the time of the booking. Apart from that, the map feature lets them reach the destination by offering step by step navigation.

  • One Touch

    The One Touch feature lets the driver and the passenger connect with ease. This means there would be no miscommunication, no guessing game, and they wouldn’t even have to leave the app to make a call and place each other.

  • Review

    Your app should ensure that the passengers are safe and happy with the drivers and that the drivers aren’t ill-treated by the passengers. This is why you must add the review feature to make sure that your app users can review and rate each other.

  • Push Notifications

    Push Notification feature makes it possible to send out messages to all your app users with just a single tap. This means the passenger gets a notification when the driver accepts the booking, is nearby, and when he reaches the pick-up location!

  • App Analytics

    Simply creating an app and expecting it to work fabulously does not work. With App Analytics feature, you would be able to gauge which elements of your app are doing well and which ones need improvement. Tweak and improvise.
