Taxi services are available in SA for those looking to get driven to and from destinations in a private car or shuttle. There are many reasons that people would want to use the service amongst the most common is after having been out to a club or celebrating and having a few alcoholic drinks. It is obviously much wiser to get hold of the phone number for your local taxi service and organise to be picked up or dropped off at your destination than to risk driving and getting pulled over by the police or caught at a road block and charged for drunk driving. Or even worse end up causing a motor vehicle accident because of driving while under the influence.
When looking for a reliable taxi service in South Africa to take you or pick you up at a destination make sure you find out what kind of charges the company is likely to charge you. Some companies will charge you from the moment they leave their premises and you could be paying for that time if you are running late and the driver has to wait in the car outside your home or the location from which you need to be picked up. On the other hand, some shuttle services will only charge you for the distance you need to travel in kilometres.
No matter if you are in Cape Town, Bloemfontein, Durban, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth or elsewhere in this beautiful country you will be able to find a company to get you to and from the location that you need to be at on time.
Some good advice to make things work out cheap for you is if you are going to a specific place to meet friends, for instance a wedding reception, then try and work out something amongst your friends so that you can possibly share the same transport and split the cost. This will only work out if you and your friends live relatively close to each other but if you can arrange this then six people paying for transport to and from a location is a lot cheaper than two. Do your research and check through the various online directories as there are many private companies these days offering taxi services in SA towns and cities.
