FREE NOW is one of the most trustworthy ride-hailing apps in Europe. It used to be known as MyTaxi, but the company and app changed their name this summer to FREE NOW on July 2, 2019. The app is a one stop taxi hailing experience for customers to book, pay, and ride.

The app works with yellow taxis, black cabs, and other fully licensed services as a comprehensive ride-hailing platform. FREE NOW operates throughout cities in nine European countries. The app is available and taxi services can be used in certain cities in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Poland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden.  

The app began as MyTaxi upon its foundation in June 2009. In July 2016, the company merged with Hailo. It was a growing opportunity for the service because Hailo was a major taxi app within Ireland and the United Kingdom. The merger made MyTaxi the largest and most successful taxi hailing app in Europe. FREE NOW is headquartered in Hamburg, Germany with BMW and Daimler having large shareholdings. The app continues to prosper and supports over seven hundred employees. 

FREE NOW is a preferred taxi hailing app because of its intuition and seamlessness. Hailing a taxi is as simple as entering your destination and paying with a credit card on file. Users can track their taxis arrival, save their home and work addresses for easy booking, and share their ride with friends and family for safety. The app also allows riders to book a taxi up to four days ahead of schedule, so you never have to worry about getting to your destination. FREE NOW also offers to have receipts emailed for business expense purposes; the app also offers business accounts. 

One of the best features FREE NOW offers is the ability to order the specific taxi to fit needs. Taxi XL allows more than four riders in a vehicle. Match helps riders share a taxi and the expense with other passengers in select cities. Exec is available in Cork and Dublin providing luxury vehicles to business passengers. Taxi wheelchair helps those with accessibility concerns. Taxi Eco is an environmentally friendly option with hybrid and electric vehicle options. 

Europeans and tourists love FREE NOW because it is a user friendly, affordable way of getting around town. With ever growing options and destinations, the app is projected to continue growing in success and popularity.
