Following the footsteps of Uber, today, Ola introduced the same feature to their app as well. That being said, you still have to install the Ola app on your phone to book the cab offline. Follow the below procedure to book an Ola cab without internet in your smartphone.
Step 1: Make Sure that You Have Ola App Installed in Your Phone
As said earlier, to follow the procedure, you should have already installed the Ola app on your smartphone.
Step 2: Open the Ola App
Opening the Ola app without the internet connection will show up two options: Try Again or Book via SMS. Select the second option and follow the third step.
Step 3: You Should Have SMS Balance in Your Smartphone
After selecting the book via SMS option, it will redirect you to your default messaging application to send an SMS to a particular number. Just send a message to that number and wait for some time.
Step 4: Select Cabs Around You
Within no time, you will receive an SMS showing the details of all the cabs around you. Select the one you need and reply it with the cab number.
Step 5: Wait for Confirmation Message
After selecting the cab you need, you will receive another SMS which contains all the details of your cab. Having said that, the driver will be given your details and location as well.
