Hopping into a car driven by a total stranger can be quite daunting at times but there are things that you can do to make this a totally enjoyable and more importantly safe experience.

I love to promote Local Business whenever I can and I can truly say that Melbourne Maxi Taxis is a taxi service that provides real value for money.

Clean, comfortable and professional and most importantly safe to ride in.

Set out below is an article sent to me by 'Ivy Delfin' outlining just why this Company is so different.

What To Consider Before Jumping Into A Melbourne Taxi

"Melbourne has a great reputation amongst locals and travelers alike for many great reasons.

  • our thriving arts scene
  • incredible cafes and restaurants
  • our passionate love of AFL and all things Sporting. 

However, when it comes to transport, sometimes we’re not as highly regarded.

This is particularly true of Melbourne, Australia's taxi services.

Generally the service is regarded as a bit of a gamble, more like a hit and miss event.

You never know when you’re going to get a filthy cab with a deranged, muttering loon for a driver.

Unfortunately there’s a pretty good chance, hailing a cab at midnight on a Saturday (sometimes even at 9am on a Monday), that this is precisely what you’ll get."

jjMelbourne Maxi Taxis is one of the companies attempting to redress the balance a little and give customers true value for money.

It is very important to take a few things into consideration


jumping into the closest cab.

Here are a couple of Tips that will help keep you safe.

  • For your own safety and peace of mind, always try to call and book the cab in advance. This way, there’s a record of what time and with whom you were picked up, minimising the chances of an bad experience. 
  • It’s also important to note the drivers ID and rego. 
  • If they fail to display their driver ID you are well within your rights to ask to see it, or refuse to continue the journey. Noting the driver ID in advance means you will be able to report any troubling incidents, be it unsafe driving or a rude and threatening driver.

Please Note that there are plenty of excellent taxi drivers in Melbourne.

If you’d really like the guarantee of comfort, cleanliness, and professionalism, contact the people direct at Maxi Taxis.

When you hire a Melbourne Maxi Taxi Cab, you hire a quality, luxury, Melbourne cab that is clean and well maintained. A Melbourne Taxi cab which is perfectly suited to all occasions including occasions requiring that extra seating and luggage space.
