Every week ILQ features a different Qatari startup in a segment called ‘Startup of the Week’. Qatar has some of the most creative, unique, and impactful startups in the region. We cover different startups across various industries in Doha, from fashion and beauty, to food and dining, health and education, and more! This week we’re featuring OdaabO, a new online cab booking service in Qatar.

OdaabO is a transportation app available to download on the App Store and Google Play with a motto of ‘Ride with no regrets’. Claiming that ‘You don’t have to be rich to travel well’, OdaabO’s focus is to set itself apart from other similar companies, through a heightened guest experience and customer service. In fact, every passenger is referred to as a guest!

To use the app users must sign up to register – then, they can book a car simply by tapping a button all on a single screen. Once a passenger’s current location and street name are received, a vehicle is immediately dispatched. Payment can also be made directly through the app, with a function to track the driver’s identity and vehicle information on the go. 

What makes OdaabO unique is that there is an app for passengers (‘Sign Up To Ride’), and a separate app for drivers (‘Sign Up To Drive’).  Drivers are looked at as partners in the business rather than employees, offering what they describe as a lowest commission rate and better rates for registered drivers, positioning OdaabO as a competitive, reliable, and economical option for getting where you need to go! Now that’s ajeeb!
