How is the fare calculated?

The fare for your journey with Taxi York is calculated based on several factors to ensure fairness and transparency. These include:

  1. Base Fare: This is a fixed amount that applies as soon as you enter the taxi. It covers the cost of picking you up and starting the journey.
  2. Distance Traveled: After the base fare, the cost of your trip includes a charge per mile. This rate depends on the type of vehicle chosen and the specific route taken.
  3. Time Taken: If the taxi is moving slowly or is stopped (e.g., in traffic or at traffic lights), a time-based rate applies. This ensures that the driver’s time is compensated fairly.
  4. Additional Fees: Certain situations may incur additional charges, such as airport surcharges, booking fees through apps or websites, or special requests like child car seats.
  5. Discounts and Promotions: From time to time, we may offer discounts or promotional rates. These will be deducted from your total fare.

We strive for transparency in our pricing. Before confirming your booking through our app or website, you will be provided with an estimated fare. Please note, this estimate might vary slightly from the final charge due to unforeseen circumstances such as detours or extended wait times in traffic.
