Exciting news! Our mission to make urban transportation convenient, safe, and more responsible has now brought us to Ireland. As of today, Bolt ride-hailing services are now fully operational in the Irish capital!
We’ve brought our service to Dublin’s fair city to provide more competition and choice, as well as offering improved conditions for both passengers and taxi drivers. That’s why in Dublin, Bolt drivers pay only 10% on completed trips.
Dubliners can order taxis with categories such as Bolt Shield, where the car has a protective shield, and Bolt Green, for a hybrid or electric taxi. In Dublin, we’re launching with 33% of cars on the Bolt platform hybrid or electric, and over 66% have protective shields.
Luke Mackey, Country Manager for Bolt Ireland said: “With the Irish economy reopening gradually this week, it is crucial to provide a safe and responsible way for people to move around. The arrival of Bolt will support the renewal of our urban economies as well as introducing choice and fairness in a taxi market that needs competition. We will do that by providing perks to taxi users and putting more money in drivers’ pockets, with a lower commission and more transparency.”
We’ve partnered with Revolut, the popular financial app, to give 50% off your first 7 trips! Users who don’t use a Revolut card can receive 50% off their first 5 trips* The discount amount can be up to €7 per trip. (As of December 23rd, this offer has now expired – please follow our social media for more).
Briain Curtin, Head of Growth for Revolut Ireland said: “Since launching this summer, 1.2m Irish Revolut customers have been earning cashback and saving money while discovering new brands. We are delighted to partner with Bolt as our 50th Revolut Rewards Partner and excited for customers to discover Bolt by saving 50% off their first 7 fares.“
