Even if you haven’t gone into debt over the holidays, chances are you’ll be feeling the pinch this January.

If you’re someone who uses ride-hailing frequently, you already know how convenient and reliable ride-hailing can be and you don’t want dry January to get in the way of your comfort.

Here are four easy money-saving hacks on Taxify you can take advantage of this month:

  • Take rides at off-peak hours: Now that the holiday rush is over, traffic is a lot easier to predict. Save money by requesting rides at times when traffic is a lot lighter. Consider requesting rides before 6 am in the morning, at 3 pm after lunch and also after 9 pm when heading back home at night to save money on rides on weekdays. This would leave you with a little extra cash every day this month.

 

  • Share rides with friends: Why take rides alone, when you can share with friends that are going in the same direction as you?  Rather than ride solo, share rides with 2-3 of your friends or colleagues and split the bill or take turns paying at the end of each ride.

 

  • Use Taxify Boda & Taxify GO: Many of us are already familiar with the Taxify GO and Boda categories. Capitalize on these affordable categories and make savings on your rides all January.

 

  • Refer friends and family: One of the easiest ways to save money this January on Taxify is by referring other passengers. Simply share your unique referral/invite code (found in your Taxify app). Once your invite has enjoyed their free ride using your invite code, you get a free ride as well.
