minicabit, the UK-based online mini-cab price comparison and booking service, has finalised its contract with Heathrow after a successful trial period.
The agreement will enable Heathrow-bound travellers to compare and book fixed minicab quotes across a nationwide network of licensed Private Hire Operators.
The initial trial between Heathrow and minicabit saw strong demand from travellers booking mini-cabs to and from Heathrow across the UK, with over 85% of journeys outside a 15-mile radius.
minicabit’s comparison and booking service will be integrated into Heathrow’s mobile app to further enhance usability for customers when booking minicab services. Customers will be able to compare quotes from minicabit’s UK-wide network of over 650 operators.
minicabit is focusing on building partnerships across the airport sector and has already secured an agreement with London City Airport.
Further partnerships also include the O2 Arena, and Blenheim Palace, the renowned country house and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill.
minicabit was founded by Amer Hasan, ex-global head of Apps and Internet Partnerships at Vodafone. The company’s board also features Steven Norris, former UK Transport Minister, as a board adviser and Paul Lawton, O2 UK general manager of Small and Medium Businesses, as a non-executive director.
