Help for private hire and taxi operators using Cabubble.

General

I've used online taxi bidding systems before. Why should I use Cabubble?

There is no bidding process with Cabubble – when a booking request is made, it goes straight to one cab firm, as chosen by the passenger. This happens instantly with no need to respond to e-mails or pick up the phone.

Is Cabubble a reverse auction taxi booking system?

No – Cabubble is not a reverse auction taxi booking system. The online cab booking is made direct with one taxi firm, as chosen by the passenger.

Does Cabubble offer a taxi and private hire directory?

No, we do not operate a taxi or private hire directory. Cabubble is a real-time booking platform for fully licensed taxi and private hire service providers, offering live cab prices.

Who is responsible for the passenger's transfer?

You, the transport provider, are solely responsible for the passenger's transfer. Cabubble is a system to streamline your online taxi booking operations. We do not operate any vehicles and therefore accept no responsibility for the transfer. It's your job to offer passengers safe and timely transport services.

Do you run background checks on passengers?

No, we don't run checks on passengers before or after they've made a booking.

Can we use it for all taxi jobs?

Yes, you can. While our focus is getting people to and from the airport, you can use Cabubble for all taxi jobs booked online.

Can Cabubble help me to fill airport transfer dead legs?

While Cabubble is not designed for this, you could receive a booking for the dead leg of an airport transfer.

I'd like more cab work from business travellers and TMCs. Can you give me more cab jobs from business travellers and TMCs?

Cabubble can bring you taxi jobs from a range of sources, including corporate clients and travel management companies.

My minicab company specialises in sea port and ferry transfers. Do you offer these minicab jobs?

Cabubble can provide taxi jobs for sea and ferry ports and many other leisure and business travel destinations.

Technology

We've got everything computerised in our office. Why should we replace it with Cabubble?

Cabubble is not designed to replace your existing systems. It works alongside them and your phone lines as an additional means of generating taxi jobs.

What kind of computer do I need to run Cabubble?

Cabubble is a web-based application. Unlike some taxi booking software and cab dispatching systems, all you need is a PC running any popular browser such as Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer etc.

Do you make cab booking apps?

Yes. Android apps are available. Apps for other mobile platforms are in development. Our responsive white-label booking engine works with all mobile browsers.

Is there a Cabubble Dispatch API?

The Cabubble Dispatch API is in development. This will allow STP (straight-through-processing) of taxi jobs into your existing vehicle dispatch and tracking systems.

I've heard Cabubble is the best taxi booking system in the UK. Is this true?

We work hard to make the best taxi booking system possible. View our presentation to decide for yourself whether it is the UK's best taxi booking system.

I need a London taxi app for my London cab firm. You don't have a London taxi app, so how do passengers book airport transfers on their smartphones?

We don't have a London taxi app, but passengers with smartphones use our white label responsive taxi booking engine to book taxis and minicabs from London, wherever they are going.

White Label Taxi Booking Engine

You provide a white label taxi booking engine – can you build a website for me too?

We do not build websites for partner taxi and private hire service providers – you must make one yourself or find a taxi web design company to do it for you.

Does your white label taxi booking engine have a taxi promo code feature to help promote my discounted cab rides?

Yes. Our white label taxi booking engine has a taxi promo code feature. Use this to promote discounted cab rides in your local area and stand out from other taxi and minicab operators.

Many passengers want to book a taxi on their mobile phone. Is your white label taxi booking engine mobile-friendly?

Yes. All white label taxi booking engines work on mobile devices, tablets and PCs.

I run a chauffeured limousine company / executive car service, not a minicab or taxi service – can I also join?

Our licence is stuck in the post, can we join in advance?
