Hi friends, I am moving to Goa and many of the services that I use like Ola/Uber, Grofers/BigBasket, Swiggy are all absent there. Do any of you have any idea of similar services for Goa?

none of them would work and also there are no alternatives available. You will have to do everything offline that too by paying huge mouthcoming price, this is how GOA works.

for grocery you would be able to use Amazon, and PaytmMall. And other all sites for all other needs.

May be your name no important.

But name of city in Goa is important. So do mention it

Forget ola.. buy a scooter . Without one you cannot move an inch (petrol is still cheap there)

Goa has different dynamics. There are some local companies offering services while Some all India apps do work in North Goa and major cities like mapusa , Vasco, panjim and madgaon. If you are not closer to any one of them then hard luck.

I am moving to Succor. Thank you for the info. I would be thankful if you can elaborate some more on this topic. TIA.

As dharmanath481 said, get a two wheeler or a car. If you have a lot of money to spare then travel by taxi (or you can try this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=c... , probably will work out a bit cheaper than haggling with your local cabbie). Taxis in Goa are expensive, very expensive. Or you can try our own local “pilots” (motorcycle taxis, “pilot” rides the motorbike, you sit behind)

Succour is midway between panjim and mapusa so you would not get all the metro city benifits of both cities. Area is well connected so if not comfortable with self driving, good connectivity of mini bus service.
For a decades whenever in Goa used to either travel by bus or take my car from Mumbai.
but after I permanently dropped my spare pulsar180 there local transport got sorted and saves a lot of time.

Swiggy is set to launch in Goa on 1st nov

You are right about this. Swiggy launched in the Panjim area. They even gave me a little box of chocolates for being one of their first customers.https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/539253/original/IMG_20181106_180534.jpg?1542403165https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/539252/original/IMG_20181106_180552.jpg?1542403149

Tried the “Goa miles app” for the first time. I will definitely recommend this to all. It is an alternative to ola/uber there. Cost was 30% cheaper than airport government kiosk and 50% cheaper than local cab operator.

The ride was a smooth. Driver came with in 5mins. Paid exactly what displayed before booking the ride (Online)

Use Quick ride app for car pooling or bike pooling if available in Goa
