We at Book Maxi Cab Melbourne always prefer to go with Fixed fares rather than Metered. Fixed fare always is a peace of mind to go with. Once a fare is mutually agreed between Maxi taxi company and customer the rest of the journey is then hassle free. It is a win-win situation for both the parties. One can imagine how appealing it would be when you know what exactly you will be paying before even you start your journey.
These Fixed price Maxi Vans can lead to a Reliable, Enjoyable and Cheap maxi taxi ride around the town. Reliable because if you go by meter the longer the route a driver takes the customer end up paying more and drivers make money out of it. Customers from outside Australia who don't have much local knowledge about the route end up paying a costly ride. When fixed price comes into effect you don't need to bother a bit, which way you are being taken. Enjoyable obviously because there is no last minute surprise of paying anything extra this ultimately leads to a cheap ride around.
We expect that customers update us with a complete journey rather than just coming up with last minute changes, because the way fixed fare works is, it is calculated based on the distance between point A and point B. If while booking, we are informed about any deviations in the journey it will help us give you an exact estimate which would avoid last min disagreement.

This way you are preventing someone's time being spoiled. Please remember that our driver works against all the odds to make it on time to the pickup address. It will be disheartening to discover that the customer is not yet ready and asking more time or letting the driver wait with no extra pay.

If customer does not honour the time it would be difficult for us to provide high quality service.
