International ride-hailing app inDriver arrives in Bangkok

The ride-hailing app from Russia offers an innovative feature that gives freedom of choice to its users.

inDriver, the international ride-hailing app has made its car and motorcycle ride-hailing services available in Bangkok. Positioned among the top ride-hailing apps in the world, inDriver offers a unique experience where passengers and drivers can independently negotiate the fare of a ride.

inDriver first entered the local ride-hailing market with the launch of its ride-hailing services in Chiang Mai, Pattaya and Phuket in 2019. 

Egor Fedorov, Chief Operating Officer of inDriver said the company’s arrival in Bangkok is very significant, not only to solidify its position in Thailand, but also to further spur the company’s growth in Thailand.

“We are very proud to be introducing our innovative ride-hailing feature to the capital of Thailand. We came to the country in 2019 with a mission to provide a more affordable, accessible and fair ride-hailing service. Our unique model will allow greater freedom of choice to our users and we hope that the people of Bangkok will find our ride-hailing services to be an enticing option as a new way to travel.

“We believe there are still opportunities for growth and competition in the country. Today’s launch is very important, not only because it will put us in a better position for competition, but also to show that we are fully committed to serve the needs of Thailand’s ride-hailing market.”

“As part of our commitment to our users, we will continue our focus on improving our services and enhance users' experience by adding new features and services, while also continuing to explore other opportunities for growth,” he added.

inDriver has been steadily growing, despite facing extreme challenges due to the on-going COVID-19 situation affecting the entire world. The unique ride-hailing app recorded impressive milestones this year, where the company completed 1 billion rides worldwide in June and surpassed 100 million app downloads worldwide on Android and iOS platforms in September.

Unlike any other ride-hailing apps currently available in Thailand, inDriver gives the freedom for its users to decide the terms and preferences for their rides. This feature, known as Real-time Deals (RTD), allows passengers to first make a fare offer based on the recommended price or their preference when requesting a ride. Nearby drivers then will receive the ride request and have the option to accept the offer, ignore the request or negotiate for a more favourable fare.

The RTD feature is also unique in the way that drivers are not automatically assigned to passengers. Once passengers receive counter offers from nearby drivers, they can freely choose the driver that suits their preferences – fare, driver’s rating, estimated time of arrival or vehicle model.

In order to ensure users safety, inDriver provides features such as the ability to share GPS location and ride details in real time from the app with trusted contacts, as well as a dedicated emergency button that will connect users directly with law enforcement agencies in case of emergency.

The inDriver app is available for download for free from the Google Play StoreApple AppStore and Huawei AppGallery.
