Prices given are an estimate only, based on Melbourne rates for kilometers travelled.

The estimates given are affected by traffic conditions.

Fewer stops will result in a lower fare. The night rate will vary depending on region.





At the end of the trip the taximeter displays the fare, inclusive of fees such as phone booking fee or late night surcharge. Tolls and airport fees are additional to the fare on the meter.

If the final taximeter reading plus any tolls or airport fees (the total taxi cost) is less than the prepaid deposit, then the driver must refund the difference to the passenger.

If the total taxi cost is more than the prepaid deposit, then the passenger must pay the balance to the driver.

Note: All fares are to be paid based on the metered amount and any authorised additional charges, not the estimated amount.

Taxi drivers have the right to ask any customer for proof of payment or a deposit up to the estimated fare amount
