Comparing taxi fares across companies 

  • The price of your taxi fares is determined by the flag-down fare, the distance and time taken for your journey, and any applicable time-based and location surcharges.

  • The total fare will be displayed on the taxi meter.

  • If you book a taxi through the taxi company or third-party platforms such as mobile apps, you may have to pay a booking fee. This fee may be reflected on the taxi meter, or charged to you separately by the third-party service provider.

  • You can ask for a receipt at the end of your journey. (Note : if you book your taxi through a third-party provider such as an app, there may be a separate receipt for the booking fee, provided either by the taxi driver or electronically.)

  • You may pay your taxi fares by cash, or if the taxi has the appropriate payment device installed, payment can be made using credit card, NETS, or CEPAS stored-value cards. Charges may apply for cashless modes of payment.
