Having caught a Reliable Cab from my work function this Saturday gone from the Princess Wharf venue to home, partly intoxicated, I didn't outright ask my taxi driver if they accepted taxi chits as I had been provided one from my company. Whilst I mentioned that I had a taxi chit and placed it on the dashboard and we dropped off some work colleagues elsewhere in downtown on my trip home. When reaching home, I then learned from the driver that they don't accept taxi chits, which he was very apologetic about and he recommended I request my company reimburse the cost. I accept that was my fault for not clearly checking before we took off and paid the fare being clearly aware of the amount the meter displayed. Expecting a customary credit card payment tariff of upto $3, I was subsequently appalled to learn that I was actually charged $6 when I checked my account! That is ridiculous and outrageously expensive so I will never use this taxi company ever again! In hindsight, I think my taxi driver, whilst he was very chatty and amicable, was manipulative and took advantage with the inflated fee. On the positive, lesson learned and I got home safely so I'm grateful for that.
