Finland-based Cabforce launched officially at the Nordic Travel Fair last week. The service allows business and recreational travelers to book a taxi up to two hours in advance, and pre-pay with a credit card online. This saves the stress of being “taken for a ride” on a longer route in an unfamiliar city, and simplifies payment and language hassles with local drivers.
Cabforce solves a big pain-point for business travelers. Often times, taxis in unfamiliar cities will give you receipts with no indication about the currency, possible taxes, or even the city traveled in. This can be a complicated situation to resolve due to the language barrier you may come across while abroad. Cabforce allows you to book, pre-pay, and receive an electronic receipt online.
Cabforce is a Vigo accelerator portfolio company and is currently available in Amsterdam, Brussels, Helsinki, London, Munich, Oulu, Stockholm and Saint Petersburg.
