After launching in Hat Yai and then Chiang Mai at the end of last year, ride-hailing app inDriver has expanded to Phuket. Setting itself apart from competitor GrabTaxi, the Russia-born app allows users to set their own fare for their destination; nearby drivers then have the option to accept the fare or barter for a higher price, thus eliminating the trafficand demand-dependent prices set by other apps. With taxi prices from Phuket Airport to Kata Beach now set at an exorbitant B900 and Grab charging a B150 surcharge for every ride, this could be a turning point for visitors who are tired of being fleeced.
