ixigo, one of India’s leading travel search app, has announced the launch of “1-Tap Cab Booking” on the ixigo cabs app, a feature that allows booking the nearest available. Currently available for Android, 1-Tap Cab Booking will also work in places without a stable internet connection, such as airports, railway stations, bus stations and even while the user is en-route to his destination.

Commenting on the launch, Rajnish Kumar, chief technology officer and co-founder, ixigo, said, “Opening multiple cab apps to compare ETAs and pricing, and then booking a cab consumes time, specially when you are at a place with weak internet and GPS signals. On average, it takes a minimum of 20 seconds to book a cab on any of the existing cab apps. With 1-Tab Cab Bookings, we allow users to book their nearest cab in just three seconds, by tapping and holding a button on their home screen. The best part is that this feature works even without internet and GPS.”

ixigo uses a combination of intelligence about the user’s location through existing PNR confirmations on a user’s phone and SMS when the internet connection doesn’t work to seamlessly book a cab. ixigo cabs app also prompts the users prior to their journey to the station or airport and also when they have just landed or are about to reach their destination.
