THE MAIN PROCEDURE TO BE CARRIED OUT IN ORDER TO GET ON BOARD ONE OF OUR TAXIS.
ON THE GO
1. Simply put your hand out. If the taxi driver does not stop it means that he is already busy on another run or you are too close to the taxi rank.
AT THE TAXI RANK
2. Head straight to one of the designated areas in many places around the city. Take the first taxi in line. If upon arrival there are no taxis available please wait in an orderly fashion and one will come to pick you up as soon as possible.
*The two means indicated above are considered the cheapest for the passenger as the taxi meter starts only when the client gets on board.
CALLING THE TAXI RANK
Telephone directly one of the many taxi ranks around the city where there is at least one if not more than one at the desired address. The taxi driver will answer you straightaway to whom you will need to give all the necessary details, i.e. where he needs to pick up etc., specifying all requirements of the taxi needed, i.e. low, high, station wagon, for animals, credit card payment, more than four people, if you need to go outside the city, etc. Please wait at the designated address for the taxi with the acronym/initials or number that was provided beforehand.
*Please find the contact details here below. N.B. Please allow the telephone to ring for as long as possible and please remember that the meter starts from the rank therefore you also pay for the route taken in order to get to the given address.
CALLING THE RADIOTAXI BASE
all the base and you will get in contact with an operator to whom you will have provide the exact address with street number and any other useful information like the name of the company, shop, surgery or other information that you have verified prior to calling the base. You will also need to specify what type of taxi is required, see examples above. The operator will put you on hold for a minute in order to give you the correct number/acronym of the taxi that will come for you and the estimated time of arrival at the address you provided. Please be sure to get into the taxi that has been previously assigned to you and if there is no sign of the taxi within the reasonable amount of time allowed please contact the base again. Booking a taxi is only possible by ringing the Radiotaxi base. An extra 5 minutes are allowed while waiting for the taxi to arrive. If by any chance the taxi does not arrive please contact the base. It is not advisable to ring a taxi rank when there are no taxis waiting. You risk not finding a taxi while spending a lot of money for the call. In this case, move away and give a street number as an indication, or hail every taxi that passes. He will then communicate to the radiotaxi base that you are waiting at the taxi rank. Please avoid giving a corner as an indication of where you are. At the address the meter must not exceed the set rate plus the radiotaxi supplement.
