Prices and payment
The price for the booking will be based on the rates offered by the taxi operator/driver you have chosen in our website. Payment is made direct to us and not to the taxi operator/ driver chosen.
Taxi Coner users will book a taxi by paying via credit card or EFT and completing the booking form.
The driver agrees that he will adhere to the rate per km displayed on his profile except in exceptional circumstances. For instance, if he is meeting you off a flight and the flight is delayed, compensation for that delay and additional waiting time may be payable by you, and should be negotiated direct with the driver. Taxi Coner not responsible for any increased charges you may have to pay in these or similar circumstances.
Likewise, If during the trip you need to make some alterations such as additional stops or request the driver to collect you early or later than the agreed collection time you will need to discuss this directly with the taxi driver as it is at their discretion to accept this or not, including charging you directly for any additional service.
Any cancellations of bookings should be made directly to us and not to the driver.
If you paid directly via EFT or Credit Card and cancel the trip within 24 hours, we don’t charge any cancellation fee and we refund you the entire trip payment.
If you paid via EFT or credit card and cancel the trip less than 24 hours before the trip, a 50% cancellation fee will apply.
No Show Issues
For Taxi Coner bookings, the driver must wait for the passengers for up to 15 minutes free of charge at the pickup point but within these 15 minutes the driver must notify taxi coner call center about the customer delay. After 15 minutes, is at the taxi operator discretion if he will still take you, charging you directly for additional waiting time, with any related payment to be negotiated directly with the driver. If they decide not to take you after 15 minutes following the booked pickup time, we will treat this situation like a Cancellation made less than 24 hours whereby you will not be entitled to any refund.
By the Taxi Operator
Hopefully this should never happen but if the driver is more than 15 minutes late, then you are entitled to a full refund of the original payment if you are not willing to take that trip anymore. Any claim for additional compensation due to you is between you and the taxi Operator. However, if the Driver does turn up and you still depart in the operator’s Car – even if beyond the initial 15 minutes – you are entitled to a 10% compensation refund.
Please note that as you will have the Taxi Coner call centre number, you are required to phone us first and inform us about the taxi delay within these15 minutes waiting period. Secondly as you will have the cab phone number, we expect you also to communicate with the driver.
We will monitor these late show incidents by the taxi operator – if they frequently occur, then we may at our discretion remove them from future searches, as we only want to work with operators who can deliver an acceptable customer experience.
Please note that in some cases the No Show policies are different and those ‘terms and conditions’ will be forwarded to you at the same time as your invoice for payment.
Any disputes are to be managed directly between you and the taxi operator (just like it is with customers and airlines, even if booked via a travel website). At our discretion, we may withhold payment to the taxi operator until the dispute has been satisfactorily resolved.
