Tired of the tube? This new app does car hire, taxis and more all-in-one

Isabelle Aron

As anyone who's ever tried to get from one end of the Northern line to the other will tell you, this city is a pretty big place. Sure, the tube is great and everything, but sometimes you just don't fancy spending an hour-long journey with your face pressed against someone else's rucksack. And then there's those journeys that would be really easy by car, but involve a convoluted combination of three tube lines and two buses by public transport (thanks a lot, TfL).

But now there's a new app that could solve all your transport woes. Ubeeqo is an all-in-one service, which lets you rent a car for one-off journeys and provides longer-term rental for when you need a car for few days or weeks. And if you can't drive (or just don't want to) it also offers a taxi service. You use the app to locate your nearest car, then book and pay for it with a few clicks and you're ready to roll. And the best part? You'll never have to wait for a bus in the rain again.
