One of Ireland's biggest taxi app, MyTaxi, is set to rebrand it's name to FREE NOW later this year.

The company, formerly known as Hailo, emailed it's customers today and informed them about the name change. The app changed it's name to MyTaxi back in 2017, spending €5 million on the large ad campaign.

In a statement sent to consumers, MyTaxi wrote;

“The most important thing to remember is that there will be no change to the mytaxi service and app. We’ll still have the same app, the same local team and the same 5-star drivers – just with a new name later this year.” 

The company tweeted about the change; "We’ve exciting news  We’re joining a new mobility brand family. This means we’re getting a new name and look, and will be changing our name to FREE NOW later this year."

The change is apparently due to a merger between Daimler, it's majority shareholder, and BMW

SHARE NOW, REACH NOW, PARK NOW and CHARGE NOW are also a part of the “new brand family”, however these groups don't operate in Ireland as of yet.

There will be no change to the MyTaxi service and app, which carried over 16 million passengers across Ireland last year. MyTaxi is available in nine countries and more than 100 European cities.

Make sure to hurry up and book that last minute holiday to Spain, Bali, or wherever you can soak up the last bits of summer sunshine.

It seems the Ryanair strikes are finally over!

Which means we can finally fly somewhere without the possibility of cancelled flights looming over us.

Yesterday, after months of pilots’ disputes, the airline company reached an agreement with the trade union Fórsa, according to The Irish Times.

But it wasn’t easy for the two parties to find a settlement that satisfied the union pilots and the low-cost airline.

It took long nights, copious amounts of caffeine, and compromise from both sides.

And finally, after 22 hours of negotiation from Wednesday to Thursday morning, they found a way to end the ongoing disputes.

The verbal deal is not quite set in stone yet, for it is set to go to ballot where it will be voted on by about 100 Dublin-based, Ryanair pilots.

Nevertheless, the company seems confident the agreement will be passed as it will be backed by both the pilots and Fórsa representatives.

Due to the pilots' hectic travel schedule, the ballot is predicted to take two weeks to organise.

Both Ryanair and Fórsa have been instructed not to discuss the details of the reached proposal until the ballot is over.

The Ryanair strikes have resulted in five days of strike action by about 100 Dublin-based pilots.

Ryanair pilots in Germany, Ireland, Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands also took part in the strikes, resulting in the largest walkout for the airline ever.

We are so glad that an agreement has been reached that works for both the pilots and the airline.

Now, we can book those last minute holidays and enjoy the little while of summer we have left. 


A guy walked up to 200 American women and asked if they would have sex with him. Every one of them said no.

He then did the same thing in Europe, and while the majority said no, some didn’t think it was such a bad idea.

What does this little experiment reveal out European girls?! Watch the video to see for yourself!
