Book your taxi for New Year’s Eve in advance

New Year’s Eve is always a very busy time for minicabs so make sure you have arranged your lift home before you head out for the evening.

Unlike some hailing apps like Uber, private hire companies using the Zoom app allow their passengers to book rides home in advance, so customers can be sure they can get home safely.

It also means parents can know their children have a way of getting home and can enjoy their evening out without worrying about them being stuck, or having to stay at home themselves to be the mum and dad taxi.

“New Year’s Eve is a time for celebrating with friends and family and it’s a time when people want to have a drink without worrying about how they are going to get home,” said Zoom’s Fareed Baloch. “But that doesn’t mean having to leave booking your ride until you’re ready to go home and risk waiting around for hours or being at the mercy of price surges.

“It’s so easy to order a safe, legal ride home particularly with the latest technology available on your smartphone.

“If your local company uses our App you can download it and book cars in advance – and if someone needs to change their plans at the last minute because they’ve had one too many, you can book a car for them as well.

“It’s particularly good for companies who can use our accounting software to have an account with their local minicab firm with all journeys detailed and invoiced directly to you, making sure all of their staff are safe.

“Remember, the morning after you might still be over the limit so it’s better to be safe than sorry: not just for you. With 40 children killed by drink drivers in 2015 don’t ruin lives instead of ordering a safe minicab home at the touch of a button.”
