Bookings can be arranged between 8am and 2am, and must be arranged at least 45 minutes in advance. Services for public holidays must be booked by 5pm the day before the public holiday.
At the specified time and location, the call centre will notify you that the driver has arrived, at which time you will have 15 minutes to meet the driver.
If you do not meet the driver within 15 minutes, the call centre will notify you that the driver will be leaving and the trip will be cancelled. If you cancel your request two hours before the booked collection time, there are no consequences, but if you cancel your request an hour before the booked collection time, you forfeit one of your trips for the year.
The service is available within a 50km radius of city centres in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Nelspruit, Polokwane, Durban, East London, George, Cape Town and Bloemfontein.
