Fares

As with most Cab companies worldwide, our charge rate is broken down as follows:

  • Per km rate – The tariff per kilometre or part thereof. This is currently R12.00 per km for 1-4 passengers
  • Flag Fall – The rate which appears on the meter as it is switched on to recover the cost of getting to the pick-up. This is currently R10-00
  • Minimum Charge – Zippy Cabs has a minimum charge of R30 (1-4pax) in and around central Durban. Trips greater than 8 kms outside central Durban may be quoted on to recover the cost driving "empty" to and from distant pick-ups where the fare does not recover the cost of this travel.
  • Per hour rate – Zippy Cab offers a "per hour" rate of R145 per hour (prorate for less time) - this needs to be pre-arranged with our 24 hour call centre and the charge will always be the higher of the "per hour rate" or the kilometers travelled multiplied by the current "per kilometer" rate.
  • Discounted Trips – Reduced rates may also be available for trips greater than 20 kms if requested via our bookings and quotes e-mail address on office@zippycabs.co.za if requested at least 24 hours in advance during office hours - Monday to Friday 8am - 4pm.
  • Discounted Rates – Reduced rates are negotiable for companies/clients that have accounts (pre-paid accounts for individuals only). Please email  office@zippycabs.co.za to find out more.
  • Payment up-front - Please always insist that your driver switches the meter on at the start of your journey unless the job has been pre-quoted. The meter is there for your protection. Our driver may request payment up-front, put the meter on, and give change at the destination. This is protect the company from patrons who jump out of the cab at the destination and run away without paying which has been happening several times per week of late.

  • Per Km R 12-00 (1-4pax)
  • Flag Fall R 10-00 (once-off charge - the meter starts at R10-00)
