Which option will you choose?
At Payataxi we consulted with a number of taxi drivers before designing our packages. You told us you wanted a range of payment options, fast account set-up and reasonable contract terms, ideally without the usual 3-5 year contract lock-in.

In response we developed 4 pricing options, and while our pricing may not be the lowest you'll find, it's competitive and there's no strings.
