Careem to Allow Cash Payments in Abu Dhabi
Careem, the Dubai-based cab hailing service has introduced another payment option for its users in the Abu Dhabi. Customers in Abu Dhabi will now be able to pay for their cabs with cash.
The company had resumed its full service in the UAE again in the month of February. Careem’s customers can now use cash, and credit cards for payment of the MiniVan(Toyota Previas), and Limo(Lexus Cars).
For now, Careem is the only app-based cab ride-hailing service operational in the Abu Dhabi. The minimum fare for availing the Careem’s service in the Abu Dhabi is AED 40.
Bassel AL Nahlaoui, VP(Business Development and Government Relations), Careem has said,” It is great to be back in the Abu Dhabi market as the only the player since Abu Dhabi is an important part for us in reaching out to more customers.”
Careem is a UAE based company and hence, is working to provide the clients with their requirements. Letting the customers pay for the rides with cash is another move aimed at building a highly satisfied customer base.
Careem had earlier introduced cash payments for the Saudi Arabian market in 2013. This was done as a part of a bid to appease heavy-cash based economy. Careem also provides cash payments on its Dubai routes.
