But why should you use Rydo? What are the benefits of using the app to a book a taxi rather than just picking up a phone? Phoning 131 001 for a taxi booking will still get you a great service and will get you from A to B, but using Rydo gives you quite a number of advantages over the traditional booking method.

Booking a taxi within the app lets you choose the style of taxi you want. If you have a group and need a maxi taxi, not a problem, or maybe you need a station wagon, we have you covered there as well. You can even tell you taxi driver how many passengers you have , and how much luggage you need help with.

Payment options with Rydo

Rydo gives you some great ways to pay.
