Anyone who has taken a plane trip with small children knows what a logistical nightmare it can be. It starts with the trip to the airport, with most people opting for expensive long-term parking, or being forced to travel by taxi or rideshare without the appropriate child restraints.
FamilyCab is a family-friendly transport service that makes it safe and easy to get to and from the airport. This reliable and affordable alternative gives you the option of being driven in your own car OR one of theirs – fully equipped with Type A4 baby car seats or Type G child booster seats.
Parents-of-three Lewis and Mel Cann identified the need while operating Perth Designated Drivers, a service that transports people in their own cars.
"We were seeing an increase in bookings from families with young kids. It's difficult to get a taxi with a car seat, and bringing your own is rarely practical. They were finding the easiest thing to do was get someone else to drive their car – something we've been doing since 2010. We decided to start a small fleet of cabs catering to the needs of families, and it has been a huge hit!"
Since launching in October 2016, the Cann's have been surprised at how popular the service has been – with both Perth families and those visiting from interstate.
To make the process even easier for parents, FamilyCab has an online booking system and an Android/iOS App, where you can track the live progress of your driver. You can also get a quote so there are no price surprises.
With Family Cab, there’s one less thing to think about. Whether travelling or socializing, you deserve to relax with your family!
