Do pin the right location
When you book your ride at Holla, check to make sure you pinned the right location of where you are waiting for your driver. It can save you time and stress because, in some instances, you and the driver might end up confusing each other if you are on the wrong landmark.
Be specific as much as possible or message them so they can know if they are in the right place or not. Also, be ready when your cab arrives so you won’t let them wait for long periods.
Do check your route from time to time
A great advantage of using Holla is that you can put your desired destination beforehand. Use this to your advantage by checking your route from time to time to know if your driver is going the right way. Also, it helps you be aware of how long the trip will take and how far you are currently to your chosen location. You can share the ride details like the name of the driver and the car’s plate number with your loved ones if that makes you feel more comfortable on the trip.
Don’t be rude
It’s always a good idea to act a little kinder and smile brighter at other people like taxi drivers. This is a courteous way of interacting with them without making the atmosphere feel tense. You don’t necessarily need to strike a conversation with them but if you want, you can engage in small talk without oversharing. For your safety, avoid going into details about your personal life and keep the conversation light.
Don’t eat or drink in the taxi
When riding in a taxi, avoid eating or drinking anything. Food can get messy when you are in a moving vehicle and you might also spill your beverage on your seat so it’s better to save yourself from any unfortunate accidents. Try to consider the side of the driver if ever there will be stains or smells in the car so make an effort to minimize any potential consequences. This will lessen your worries and eases the burden on drivers too.
