Partnership provides customers with cost-effective way to navigate the capital

20 September 2019, London: Kapten, the fast-growing ride-hailing app, is now London’s newest affordable private-hire vehicle service on Google Maps after making its debut on the platform.

The partnership allows customers to see an estimated waiting time as well as a fare quote – providing them with the most cost-effective way to navigate the capital.

With convenience and ease at the heart of Kapten, users who book through Google Maps will then be redirected to the Kapten app where they will find all the details for their requested ride.

Mariusz Zabrocki, London General Manager said: “Living in an expensive and busy city like London can be stressful. We’ve already established a fixed, low–priced PHV service – which is on average, 21%* less than Uber – but with this new collaboration with Google, we are now helping our customers with greater accessibility.”

Kapten was established in 2012 with the aim of offering a premium, yet affordable private ride service in European countries including France, Portugal, Switzerland and most recently London. With fares 21%* cheaper than the local competition, Kapten offers an unbeatable loyal, low-priced and high-quality service.
