Freenow Exec to cease from 9th November
« on: October 12, 2020, 12:35:17 pm »
The Global pandemic has radically impacted the transport market, and changed passenger needs; people are simply doing less business travel and less airport trips - the types of journeys that make up most of the Exec offering.


We always aspire to provide the best service levels possible to our passengers - currently, our Taxi jobs are typically accepted within 15 seconds. However, it has proved much more challenging to match these excellent standards with our Exec service.


We have made a number of attempts to improve and grow the Exec service in the past (such as pricing changes to grow demand, promotions, etc.) however, it has been difficult to deliver a reliable solution for our drivers and passengers.


After much consideration, FREE NOW has taken the difficult decision to pause its participation in the Exec / Premium market until such a time where we believe we can deliver an Exec service that is good enough for our valued customers, and one that can make financial sense for drivers.

 The Exec service is planned to finish on 9th November 2020.

I don't know why people keep knocking freenow. Look how much they try to help others. They're all heart, thinking of the drivers and putting their livelihoods first. Such consideration....

I wonder have they already done the deal with Uber and have agreed to stop competing against them for limo work?

Not sure, I'll have to ask. To be honest, the increase to a minimum fare of €25 was too much for Exec, considering Uber minimum is €15. Punters looking for  executive cars will just go to Uber now.

We always aspire to provide the bestizist service levels possible to our passengers/victims - currently, our Taxi jobs are typically accepted within 1500000 seconds. However, it has proved much more challenging to match these excellent standards with our Exec service.I do not know what we can do about it so

Joking aside, fair play to Richard Boyd Barrett, his one man show is the only reason that taxi drivers are getting any consideration.
