Taxify vs Uber in South Africa

A review of the Taxify vs Uber services in South Africa, and how they differ.

Taxify vs UberNote: This post is not sponsored. I just wanted to share my thoughts.

A little-known fact about me is that I don’t drive. I’m a fully-grown adult and while I can drive, I don’t have my license. I know some people find it insane, but I’ve never had the urge to be a driver and I’ve never had the need to do so. Before I worked from home with Inkfish Digital, I used public transport to and from town. Easy, peasy.

Of course, there are times when I need to get around (to blog events, coffee dates, or shopping trips) without the help of public transport and when my darling husband is at work. It’s moments like that when the Taxify and Uber services are my best friends. In fact, it’s become a family joke that I’ll request an Uber at the drop of a hat.

While Uber is the most popular taxi choice at the moment, there’s another service that is starting to make a name for itself in South Africa, and in my case, Cape Town. Taxify is still fairly new here in South Africa, but it’s quickly growing in popularity. I’ve used both of these services and I’ve decided to chat about them both in the post below.
