Sick of rideshare rip-offs? Placie can help

Placienews_1800x1000 (1)

Here's your exclusive code to getting $10 off your first 3 rides.

Ever had that moment where you need a lift only to wind up opening multiple rideshare apps trying to find the cheapest?

We've all been there.

It's taken a while but someone ( if you need a name to thank) has finally built an app that takes all this messy app-juggling out of the equation.

It's called Placie and it works by searching a heap of rideshare, taxis, black cars and limos and bringing up live fare estimates for you to snap up.

Plus, you can book directly on it. So you can say bye-bye to all those other rideshare apps now.

Ola, 13cabs, Silvertop and Black & White Cabs are the main rideshare and taxi companies on it. The team at Placie is working hard to get more on board.

It's pretty fun to use too as you can see the fares bounce around as they compete with one another.

You can filter by price, availability and distance from you. This is super handy in case time is of the essence.

Like your typical rideshare app, it keeps a record of your trips and receipts.

Get $30 off

There are incentives if you're keen to give it a go. Right now Finder has this exclusive code that can get you $30 off your first 3 rides.

This is broken down into 3 separate $10 discounts that can be loaded into the app now and used anytime before 31 December 2022.

And like other apps that have gone before it, there is also a sweet refer-a-friend bonus: give $20, get $20.

After signing up, share your referral link with a friend. When they download and install the app within 14 days, they'll get a $20 promo code.

If they take their first ride within 3 months, your account will be credited with $20.

Other modes of transport

Placie is more than just a rideshare compare-and-book app. It aims to be your one-stop-transport shop and houses 8 different modes of transport:

  • Rideshare
  • Train
  • Bus
  • Tram
  • Cycle
  • Drive
  • Motorbike
  • Walking

This way you can make a full comparison of your options, including what's fastest, cheapest or most accessible to you.

These can't be booked through the app yet but it's still a great source of transport info to nut out your travel plans.
