Careem has partnered up with Telenor Pakistan to start offering free WiFi in some other their cars. In addition to that, Careem is also offering 35% discount to Telenor users for their first ride using promo code: Telenor35. The discount code works for both now and later booking in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad
The WiFi cars are separate from Economy and Business cars that Careem is already offering. Rates of WiFi cars are same as Business cars i.e. Rs 23/KM with a base rate of Rs 160. It is yet unknown that how many WiFi cars have been added to Careem’s fleet. To get the WiFi cars option in your app, you simply have to logout and login again for the option to show up.
Careem is a major cab services player in the Pakistan market which has taken this step to enhance the customer experience. Even Uber, which is much bigger globally, does not offer in-car WiFi.
Careem is using Telenor’s 3G dongles in their cars. It is a great initiative which can also act as a unique selling points which can increase its market share in the long run.
