Taxify announces new Happy Hour feature and dynamic pricing

Aussies can now save 25% on rides during special hours.

Newcomers to the ride-sharing party in Australia Taxify has just announced its latest feature to extend the honeymoon period.

After recently launching in Sydney and Melbourne with 50% offers, Happy Hour is now available wherever you find Taxify and you can save 25% on rides during certain hours, excluding tolls and fees.

When booking your ride, simply look for the Happy Hour order button and click “Request Happy Hour” to lock in your lower fare. You will not need to enter a special promo code during the transaction.

Dynamic pricing AKA "surge pricing" has finally come to Taxify as well. After promising a different approach to Uber’s surge fares during peak hours, Taxify has announced that its fares can rise or fall slightly due to demand and supply indicators at particular times and in particular areas, similar to its rival Uber.

You will be notified on the app before booking with this notification: "Prices are currently higher due to high demand" and shown the corresponding multiplier, before making your booking.

The question still remains whether Taxify can still compete with Uber and stay ahead of all the other services vying for the Australian market.

Head to Taxify for more information, to check it out for yourself and to try the service at a discounted rate.
