Press release for immediate release – Thursday 27th November 2014
Kabbee, London’s leading licensed minicab comparison and booking app, has launched a free cabs campaign named #TubeFreeFriday, giving journeys away for free, in a bid to help Londoners avoid the tube cram caused by MasterCard’s #FareFreeFriday.
After hearing that last Friday’s #FareFreeFriday attracted record numbers of tube travelers, Kabbee is launching #TubeFreeFriday, to give away 100 free journeys using the code TGIF20, and double miles via its loyalty programme ‘Kabbee Treats’ for journeys booked on Friday 28th November 2014.*
Kabbee is London’s leading minicab app, helping over 500,000 users get around the city via a mighty minicab. Its users generate 1,000 quotes per minute for over 70 of London’s best minicab fleets. During peak commute times, Kabbee sees a 29% uplift in bookings, on average.**
Justin Peters, London-born Founder and CEO of Kabbee, comments on launching the campaign: “We’re big believers in giving Londoners as much choice as possible, and by launching #TubeFreeFriday, we’re giving commuters another cost-effective option to avoid the big tube squeeze this Friday.”
Kabbee users who take a minicab during Friday 28th November will receive double miles, via the Kabbee Treats programme, which launched earlier this month. Users will be entitled to a selection of rewards, based on how many miles they have earned via Kabbee over a three month period. Kabbee’s users can earn more miles by referring a friend, by upgrading to a premium car for their journey, or booking a minicab this Friday.
The loyalty programme rewards passengers with ‘miles’ for every journey, which convert into treats from Kabbee and some great brands such as LateRooms.com, Naked Wines, Pact Coffee, Hubbub, Housekeep, LOVESPACE and La Gourmandina.
Kabbee Treats also includes a full refund for late cabs as part of its ‘5 Minute Punctuality Promise’***, an upgrade to a premium car and free credit to say thank you to loyal users.
Kabbee has recently launched its GPS live plotting technology that reduces waiting time for London’s everyday heroes up to 14 minutes on average, and cuts dead mileage for cabbies in half.
