Download HOPIN to your mobile and book an IQOS FRIENDLY taxi:
Slovakia has introduced a European phenomenon.
Smoke-free HOPIN taxis.
Dozens of specially marked IQOS FRIENDLY taxis
hit the streets of the capital in June.
These allow adult clients to enjoy smokeless
alternatives to conventional cigarettes during their journey.
* IQOS FRIENDLY taxi service
was created in cooperation with the IQOS brand.
IQOS FRIENDLY taxis are easy to order.
Just like any other HOPIN taxi. After entering
the starting and destination addresses, you can choose IQOS FRIENDLY – Economy
or IQOS FRIENDLY – Premium. You will see the price for the journey
in advance, of course. Then all you have to do is confirm your order.
IQOS is not a cigarette but a smokeless device that does not produce smoke like conventional cigarettes, but an aerosol, which is basically water vapour. It is not against the law to use IQOS in a taxi. Smokeless taxis are a complementary service and an alternative option to other HOPIN services.
The fundamental difference between a cigarette and a smokeless tobacco product is that while the tobacco in a cigarette burns and produces smoke containing around 6000 pollutants, the tobacco in a smokeless tobacco product is only heated and, instead of smoke, it produces an aerosol containing up to 95 % less pollutants than cigarette smoke on average and it consists mainly of water vapour, nicotine and glycerine. Liquid particles evaporate in less than 1 minute, do not adversely affect indoor air and are not a source of passive smoking. All nicotine products, including smokeless products, are not risk-free as nicotine is an addictive substance, but they are a better choice for adult smokers if they wish to continue smoking.
HOPIN is a dynamic company that constantly strives to innovate and meet the needs of its clients, which include smokeless product users. IQOS FRIENDLY taxi is an additional service that adult clients can use based on their own choice.
No. IQOS friendly taxis are a complementary alternative to other HOPIN services. Thus far, it is a pilot 3-month project in Bratislava, which involves approximately 40 taxis.
Simply. First of all, you need to have the HOPIN app. If you don’t have it, download it from the App Store or Google Play. When you open the application, you will see the BUS, TAXI, COURIER menu. TAXI is the default option, so just enter the starting and destination addresses and click CONTINUE. Then select IQOS FRIENDLY from the ECONOMY, PREMIUM, TAXIMETER and IQOS FRIENDLY offer.
Yes. Each IQOS FRIENDLY taxi has a magnet on the door that says “You can enjoy smoke-free products here” and a smoke-free device icon. In the app, there is also a smokeless device icon on the car pin.
Yes. All IQOS FRIENDLY taxis are equipped with heets-trays (boxes for used cartridges), IQOS chargers and an original fragrance to make the journey more pleasant for passengers.
IQOS is synonymous with all smokeless products. All products from this category can be used while driving.
It can happen; it is of utmost importance for the HOPIN app to provide clients with a fast pickup. However, if the application automatically assigns an IQOS FRIENDLY taxi to the client, the client has the right to cancel the order and re-order another taxi.
IQOS does not produce any smoke, just aerosol (vapour). Because the aerosol does not contain solid particles, it does not become permanently trapped on clothing, on the human body or on furniture and interior furnishings of taxis. It evaporates in just one minute. What’s more, all IQOS FRIENDLY taxis are equipped with the original IQOS fragrance, so there’s no unpleasant smell to worry about, and all drivers involved in the pilot project are instructed to ventilate the vehicles regularly.
You can, but of course it’s up to other passengers to decide if they feel comfortable. It is necessary to behave responsibly and to be considerate of others.
The installation of the HOPIN app is subject to the user agreeing to the terms and conditions, in which the user confirms that he/she is over 18 years of age. The use of smokeless products is also subject to a minimum age of 18 years. For these reasons, the IQOS FRIENDLY taxi service is not intended for minors.

No. IQOS neither burns nor smokes and does not release any particulate matter. The IQOS user’s surroundings are therefore not exposed to passive smoking.
No. Our drivers need to be fully focused on driving and client safety. (They can, however, use a smokeless alternative during a break and while waiting for a client.)
