How to beat the SURGE and get home faster 😎

Summer is upon us, and here at GoCatch we’re looking forward to getting you to wherever you need to be this season – whether it’s a beach trip, off to work or a Sunday picnic in the park. The waves may be surging this summer, but with GoCatch you can avoid the surge pricing and control how much you spend on your travel.

GoCatch gives you access to Australia’s largest combined fleet of Taxis and Private Vehicles (Economy & Premium), and gives you three ways to beat the surge and get picked up fast:

Access Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles via the GoCatch App

With over 57,000 registered Taxi and Private Vehicle drivers and more joining daily, take confidence in Australia’s largest combined fleet to take you home. Fares are calculated in-app and shown prior to booking, so you’ll never experience price surging. Enter a credit card, PayPal or Android Pay for the ease of a seamless hop-in, hop-out experience.

GoCatch Advance Bookings

Avoid the hassle of waiting for a vehicle by booking in advance. Have a car waiting for you when you need it most, day or night, from 1 hour to 12 months in advance – for added peace of mind. Did we mention no surge pricing?

Get Picked Up Faster with Driver Incentives

Have the ability to add a Driver Incentive to reduce your wait time for a vehicle when there is high demand. Be in control of your costs by choosing your own incentive amount. Adding as little as $10 can get you picked up faster and come out ahead against surge pricing. Most importantly, 100% of each Driver Incentive goes directly to your Driver.

Referrals are Back! Give $5, Get $10.

Help your friends and family beat the surge with GoCatch and get $10 credit on us! When your refer a new passenger they’ll get $5 off their first trip, and after they take 3 trips you’ll get $10 credit. To find your Referral code, open the GoCatch app and tap Menu > Share.

The GoCatch Guide to Faking It as a Craft Beer Enthusiast

Tuesday 24 May, 2016

One of the best beer festivals in the world, the Great Australasian Beer Spectacular (GABS) is returning to Carriageworks this weekend.

To get you prepared, we’ve put together a brief guide to help you look like a seasoned craft beer enthusiast, even if you can’t tell the difference between beer and cider.

When you’re walking around the festival, spout these words to make yourself sound like a well-rounded beer festival hopper.

  • Malt: an ingredient that determines the colour, average alcoholic volume (ABV), and body of a beer. It only takes a few darker malt grains to make a rich coloured beer, which means these grains really pack a punch!
  • Carbonation: CO2 helps to heighten a beer’s aromatics, affecting overall mouthfeel. When there is foam, there is carbonation. The foam and bubbles in an alcoholic beverage strengthen the level of notes carried to the nose when you smell it.
  • Aromatics: the two most popular ways to smell the different “notes” of beer are the Bloodhound Technique, which involves giving three quick sniffs, and the simpler one long sniff beneath the nose.
  • Yeast: when beer is fermented, yeast consumes the simple sugars to produce alcohol, CO2, and a variety of flavour and aroma compounds, as well as byproducts called esters.
  • Hops: these dried cone like flowers from the hop plant are used to give beers their bitter flavour during the brewing process.
  • Legs: in fermented drinks, ethanol is the main alcoholic substance that reduces the surface tension of water in a beer, leaving legs on the side of a glass. The more legs, the higher the alcoholic content.

Now that you’re a craft beer genius, let us help you get to GABS! We’re giving all new passengers $10 OFF their first GoCatch ride with code GABS2016.

If you’re reading this on a phone, download the GoCatch app from your app store now.

So get to Gabs with GoCatch this weekend and taste test all the alcoholic craft beverages like a pro! 
The designated GoCatch pick up and drop-off area is located right in front of the Bay 8 at the Australian Technology Park.
