What’s worse than it raining cats and dogs? Hailing taxi cabs!

Thankfully that is a thing of the past. There’s no need to wave your arms full of parcels or yell yourself hoarse to make yourself heard over the zoom and vroom of traffic. All you need to do is use your thumb(s) - and not to hitch a ride. The reality is that no one with a smartphone needs to hail a cab anymore.

The world has shrunk

Ever had that perfect pair of trousers or that cute little black dress that you couldn’t fit into anymore? “It’s shrunk!” would have been the immediate reaction. That’s exactly what seems to have happened to the world today – it appears to have shrunk! Wide roads with the odd vehicle passing sedately by seeming like narrow by-lanes as you drive your car in and out, left and right, zipping into that empty spot and halting before you bend a fender. The sad fact is that, just like for those trousers, the density of occupation has increased: the space available is the same if not more yet everything is a tight fit. Driving in uptown traffic in most metro cities and towns has become stressful.

And if you are new to town? It’s distressful! Hazy ideas about routes won’t add any comfort to negotiating traffic. You cannot stop to ask for the way, you are unsure about the turn to take, and the honking cars behind you fluster you even further if you dare to slow down to clear doubt.

So, what do you do? Hire a cab!

Use it and forget it!

Parking space has become a luxury. Shopping malls, hotels, markets and events, there are plenty of those, and they have plenty of visitors. At the end of a harrowing drive, you find that others seem to have had the same idea to park in that one spot that you were backing into. When footfalls to places are fast and furious, how great is it to get off your transportation and not bother about parking space? A visit to the Dubai food festival by a friend was almost a non-starter because he went around in circles trying to park his car. By the time he did, the drive had driven the drive from him!

So, what do you do? Hire a cab!

Grease the wheels

Out of town or visiting, clients expect to be given the best of treatment, and this usually involves to and fro transportation. Why distract yourself with concierge duties and worry about this? Maintaining a car or a fleet of cars to service visitors makes very little sense today: you have to keep the vehicles, keep track of fuel consumption, and ensure that the drivers are on hand: these are just a few of the things that will distract you from your core business. Do you need to be a grease monkey to grease the wheels of commerce? How nice to leave the chauffeuring to a professional!

So, what do you do? Hire a taxi cab service!

The art of pick and choose

What do you look for when hiring a cab?
Ease of hiring: A user-friendly platform to book a cab is what will make your fingers nimble on the phone. Tracking the progress of your earmarked taxi saves you uncertainty about the time of arrival.

Skilled drivers: A good cab service will ensure properly licensed drivers who are well versed in the rules as well as the routes, courtesy being no less important than skill.

Safety: No one wants to cling on for dear life. The vehicle should be well maintained mechanically as well as clean and comfortable. The aspect of security takes on a new meaning when women travel alone. Thorough background checks of the cabbie as well as a sound tracking system are an absolute necessity.

Punctuality: This is critical always but more so when time is in short supply. Roads are crowded, and a tardy cab service will just increase the pressure

Reputation: If word of mouth is not how you want to check on the status of a taxi service, get online and read user reviews. If you are satisfied, be a repeat customer and build up a rapport with the service providers. Many even ask for a particular driver who they have been pleased with and many services oblige.

When in Dubai....

People from all corners of the world live here. Why? This jewel in the desert is a busy, busy place with a happening life. It has developed in leaps and bounds and then some! Great opportunities are waiting to be grabbed. It has amazing sights to see, an invigorating night scene, celebrations, events and cultural performances galore! All this means that you have to keep rolling and that there is no time to gather moss. Dubai isn’t the best city to drive around in. Lane and road discipline leaves much to be desired. Whether you are a resident or are visiting Dubai, feel free to make the best of every moment and take a reliable cab service to ferry you around. Yes, take a backseat in Dubai: complete important office work, chat with your companion, spend time with visitors and guests or just relax as your friendly, helpful, courteous cab driver drives you around.
So when you reach your destination, you will know that you’ve ARRIVED!
