As long as your journey is under £7.

Cab booking apps have hit the UK mobile market with force over the past 12 months, though two-year-old GetTaxi was one of the pioneers in the space and secured £13m funding back in June to launch into the US.

The firm has now announced a partnership with RIM, which will offer BlackBerry customers £7 off of their black taxi rides when they book via the GetTaxi app. The idea is to promote the service to merrymakers as a safe means of transport over the festive period, allowing them to track the vehicle's distance, registration and so on.

The GetTaxi app can be downloaded for free from BlackBerry World, with users able to redeem the discount in the 'Me' section by using the code, 'BlackBerry', until February 28th 2013.
