WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE A TAXI ACCOUNT SERVICE?

The use of taxicabs for transport is very cost-effective.  Taxis can take you door to door, saving you a great deal of time.  Taxicab usage has been shown to reduce transport costs compared to the cost of using a private car.  One has to compute the cost of fuel, parking, vehicle repairs, insurance, maintenance costs and amortized cost of a car in order to compare true costs with use of taxis. 

Taxicabs can be an extremely efficient compared to time delays from using public busses, and sharing taxi rides can dramatically reduce costs while giving you door great transport service. 

If you want to use taxicabs, you may need greater accountability of your taxi trips.  A taxi account service makes it easy for you to use taxis, and to keep a clear record of all your transportation costs.

There are many benefits to having an account service.

WHAT IS A TAXI ACCOUNT SERVICE?

Qualified customers are sent a number of taxi chit booklets.  These booklets contain easy-to-fill (multiple choice type) of taxi chits with each chit having your specific account number encoded on those chits. 

Every time a taxi user finishes a trip by cab, he/she can easily fill-in the blanks and complete one of the chits from the booklet.  That completed chit is then used for payment (like using a cheque from a cheque book).  The driver keeps that completed chit as payment (with no further need for receipts or any cash exchange) and our driver then presents that chit to our company in due course.  We pay our driver in full upon presentation of every chit.  We then sort and collate all your chits and send them back to you with an invoice to collect the funds from you within 30 days.  You receive a record of all the transactions.

NO NEED FOR CASH/ NO NEED FOR RECEIPTS

Customers often do not carry the right amounts of cash.  Customers do not remember all the taxi usage and often loose their taxi receipts.  Parents prefer being able to pay directly for the taxi trips taken by the youth rather than giving them “pocket change”, and companies are trying to make it easier for staff to use taxis and not have these users make time consuming claim sheet reports for these small taxi transactions.

ONE INVOICE/ONE STATEMENT

Every customer (business or individual) can get a set of taxi chits that are fraud resistant and easy to use.  We send you one bill and one statement for all your taxi use, and you would be required to pay in 30 days.

USAGE BY “FUND CENTRE”

You may have multiple users in your own family or in your company.  We can assign a booklet of chits to each user or group of users so your monthly statement would show total usage by each user, group of users (say your children) or each department or “fund centre”, there by giving you detailed information on usage by different groups of people.

REPLENISHING CHITS

As you use-up chits, you just call us or e-mail us for a fresh supply.

COSTS

There is no cost involved in receiving our chit/booklets or in setting-up the account.  The monthly invoice will have all the taxi metered charges and will also include a small standard administration charge of 10% applied to the invoice for the account service.  The administration charges are subject to change depending on operational cost changes over time.

The taxi chits are like a cheque book.  They are valuable payment instruments and customers should handle them carefully.  We are not responsible for lost taxi chits.

APPLICATION

An application form needs to be completed and the company may require your credit card details as security for payment in the even past invoices are not paid.
