In this issue, we are presenting a new, modern way of hiring a taxi through a taxi app which is used in many countries in the world for many years. One of the most known is Uber.
The Gambian taxi app is called 1Bena. It was launched as Gambia's 1st online transportation service in April 2021. Offering a unique, personal and first-class service with a strong commitment to help reduce the stress of travel arrangements.
The benefits of using 1Bena are many. There is no negotiating needed. Agreed prices are fixed and set in-app when confirming the offer. They have a lot of standing customers and high ratings. The application is straightforward, and it is the easiest way to book a taxi in The Gambia. There are no extra fees. You pay a tip only if you wish to.
1bena is the best choice to make your trip comfortable. Their professional drivers are available for holiday taxis, airport taxis and taxi hire in The Gambia.
The customer service is superb. Once you download an app and start using them, they are there for you. They will always assist you in case you face some issues or you can’t find the driver.
The drivers are very kind and friendly. They will come on time as set in the app, or they will call you in case of heavy traffic. There is no effort needed to get a taxi because after you order a ride from your hotel or home, you wait until you get a notification that the taxi has arrived to pick you up.
It is also possible to schedule a ride. So, if you are coming to The Gambia and need an airport pick up, you can schedule a ride one week in advance. They are specialised in 24 hours airport transfer service.
If you need a long-distance drive, they offer a long-distance taxi service to anywhere.
Starting from the 1st of May, they also offer food orders and delivery through the app.
And this is just the beginning. Follow them to be updated on their new updates in the digital world!
You are always shown the price before your journey starts so that you can decide how best to get there. No surprises.
