Passenger transport has evolved thanks to the digital age. Not so much for the vehicles themselves but for the way in which users can move beyond public or private transport. VTCs, shared vehicles, which allow to customize the service that until now was carried out only by cabs has evolved thanks -among others- to two platforms, Uber and Cabify.
Uber and Cabify are the two main platforms that allow you to manage through an app the hiring of a vehicle to transport the user.
Both companies have become popular alternatives to traditional transportation by offering a convenient and efficient way to getting around the city. However, which of the two is better? We analyze their advantages and disadvantages in this article:
Advantages and disadvantages of Uber and Cabify.
We analyze the differences between Uber and Cabify by looking at a number of aspects:
With global availability, Uber is one of the most widely known and used transportation platforms worldwide. This means that you can access its services in many cities in different countries, making it a reliable option for frequent travelers.
However, Cabify, while operating in several Spanish cities, has a more limited presence compared to Uber. This may limit availability in some locations.
Variety of services.
Uber offers a diverse range of services, from economy to luxury options. This allows users to choose the type of vehicle and level of comfort that best suits their needs and budget. In addition, Uber has the Uber Pet service, which allows travel with pets in the car.
Cabify tends to focus on providing a more premium experience compared to other ridesharing platforms. This means that drivers tend to have stricter quality standards.
In addition, Cabify has implemented additional security measures, such as real-time trip tracking and the ability to share trip details with friends or family.
App and ease of use
Both the Uber and Cabify apps are very easy to use and have features such as real-time driver tracking, arrival time estimates and different payment options.
Although it can be seen as an advantage or disadvantage depending on perspective, both companies use a dynamic pricing system that adjusts according to demand. This can be beneficial at times of lower traffic, with higher fares at times of high demand.
Due to its focus on quality and convenience, Cabify’s prices tend to be higher compared to cheaper Uber options. However, this is not always the case, so it pays to compare the prices of both before requesting a pickup by one of their vehicles.
