Hike messaging app announced a partnership with cab-hailing service Ola to bring an easy experience of booking an Ola right from inside Hike. This means Hike users can book Ola cabs and autos across 110 cities in India from within Hike and can pay directly through the Hike Wallet or in cash.
With this partnership, Hike users will have access to Ola’s commuting offerings, such as Ola Auto, Micro, and Mini to premium categories such as Ola Prime, Ola Prime Play, Ola Prime SUV, and Ola Lux.
Hike users can go into their ‘Me’ tab to access services, tap on Ola, and start booking. With this feature, Hike users will have the same experience of booking a cab on Hike as on the Ola app, users can set pick up and drop locations, track the ride, and view the driver partner details.
Another key feature is that no additional setup for a payment system is required. Users can pay directly from their Hike Wallet. Lastly, Ola on Hike occupies less than 1 MB of space on your phone, offering a lightweight footprint.
Kavin Bharti Mittal, Founder and CEO, Hike, said, “We are delighted to partner with Ola to bring taxi and auto bookings to our users on Hike, a first in a messaging app in India. We’ve made the experience incredibly simple with no need for a login and payments available through the Hike Wallet. We’re really excited by the potential of this."
Bhavish Aggarwal, Co-founder & CEO, Ola, said, “Customers feel the need to be in control of services which make their lives simpler and convenient. Innovations including strategic partnerships play a very crucial role in this process. Our partnership with Hike has been specially designed to ensure that the best and the most relevant experience is delivered to our users. We are confident that Hike users will love and enjoy the in-app Ola booking experience.”
