The Gett platform is a great alternative to the hugely popular Uber, and is rapidly expanding throughout UK cities. Originally starting in London, they now have arrangements with over 11,500 black cabs in the city alone, making it the biggest black cab app in the UK (larger than Uber or Addison Lee). Gett has since expanded to a total of 25 cities in the UK and operates with the same idea as other apps using the ‘no wallet, no problem’ logic. Gett have since expanded to 3 other countries including the United States, Russia and Israel. They have completed over 50 million journeys globally. Users in any country can quickly open the app, automatically locate themselves, and order a taxi using their preset debit or credit card in a matter of seconds.
