A new service from VTC (or Transport Car with Driver) has just landed in France, more precisely at Paris. Entitled bolt (formerly Taxify then Txfy), it once again wants to revolutionize the sector by offering prices even lower than those charged by its direct competitors Uber, LeCab, Marcel or even Chauffeur-Privé in France.
If you live in the capital or the suburbs of Paris and want to test this newcomer in the unforgiving world of hybrid bikes, we suggest you benefit from 10 € offered on your 1st race with the Bolt promo code V1G2N. In addition, throughout the month of October, the application offers for its launch 50% reduction on all races in Paris. The prices are as follows: € 0.60 for pick-up, € 0.53 per kilometer, € 0.15 per minute, and the minimum journey is only € 3!
How does Bolt work?
The operation of Bolt is very simple. Enter the pick-up location, then your destination and the application will give you an estimate of the price (with the reduction) for the trip. As with Uber, you can add your home address and your work address to save time when ordering.
As for payments, Bolt has the particularity of offering pay in cash directly in the VTC in addition to the classic payment from the app by registering your bank card. Ideal for those who do not wish to enter their bank information on their phone!
