MOBILE data service provider Globe Telecom and taxi-booking app GrabTaxi announced they have extended until June their discounted booking fee for Globe subscribers.

Globe explained that by booking a GrabTaxi cab from a Globe-powered mobile phone, GrabTaxi slashes P20 off on the regular P70 booking fee.

“During last season’s holiday rush, we saw how delighted our subscribers were when we started this partnership with GrabTaxi,” said Jenny Granada-Echevarria, head of Globe’s mobile data services. “Because of that, we have decided to extend the partnership and give our loyal subscribers this exclusive discount until June.”

For safety reasons, Globe said GrabTaxi makes it possible for commuters to share their cab ride details over Facebook and e-mail, allowing people to track their taxi route in real time. Also, the cab driver’s phone number, taxi’s plate number and other important details will be made available to customers before they get in a cab.

Globe said the GrabTaxi app can be paired with its PowerSurf99 plan that comes with 50 megabytes of mobile data, which is good for 30 days. The PowerSurf99 plan is available to prepaid and postpaid subscribers. To register, dial *143#.
