New gizmos and internet titbits are daily news these days, but it’s not often that one comes along allowing everyone to genuinely feel the benefits. Enter the Taxi Fare Calculator stage left.
Never again will you be preyed on for your naive tourist demeanour when taking a little taxi ride in foreign climes because Bing Maps has added the Taxi Fare Calculator. It does exactly what it says on the tin, AKA check the price of your fare before your taxi driver tries to rip you off. A to the W to the E to the SOME!
But there are a couple of major flaws: the new add-on is currently only available for a few select cities and, as yet, there isn’t a mobile version. On the plus side, you’ll save a shed-load of money with those internet roaming charges your phone company likes to sting you with. Swings and roundabouts eh?
