If you're planning a night on the town and want to celebrate it with a drink or 2... We'll be at your service to take you and your car (the car listed on your King Price policy) home safely. You have a good time and just leave the rest to us.
A small price to pay
For a minimal cost that will be added to your monthly insurance premium, you'll be able to summon the king's cab 6 times a year.
You're more than welcome to make use of this service as often as you want, but should this exceed the 6 times a year, additional charges will apply.
When summoned, the king's cab with 2 hand-picked drivers will come to your rescue. 1 Will chauffeur you home in your own car, while the other will go along
to bring your driver back once you, your royal highness, is home safe and sound.
Sounds like a great idea, right?
Please note: The king's cab isn't a taxi service, and we'll only be able to transport you in your own car.
How to call
You may book the king's cab by calling 0860 50 50 50, until 2:00am. To make sure that you don't wait too long for your drivers to pick you up, you should book no less than 1 hour before you want to be collected during off-peak times and 2 hours during peak times.
Cancellations, rescheduling or change of location must also be done on the same number. But please make sure that you do so 90 minutes before your scheduled pick-up. Failure to do so will result in penalty fees being charged. And no one wants to lose a trip unnecessarily. You might need that trip for another occasion.
Picking you up and dropping you off
When you book your king's cab, we'll agree on where you have to be picked up. As soon as our driver arrives at the spot, we'll let you know. You'll then have 15 minutes to say your good-byes and meet our driver. The call centre will try to call you again and send a SMS. If we still can't reach you within this time frame, our driver will be forced to leave you behind and head to the next rescue. If we have to collect you from a big venue like a casino, make sure to let us collect you at a place that can be easily spotted. This way we can avoid both you and our driver going on a wild goose chase.
Weekends and happy holidays
Please be sure to book your king's cab well in advance over weekends, public holidays and the peak period that falls over the Festive Season (15 November to 15 January). For us to be able to help you AND all the other party animals in our royal family, your booking should be made at least 2 hours in advance. Also, because we're doing the run-around during this time of the year, pick-up times can't be changed once your booking is ofﬁcially conﬁrmed.
Where we operate
The king's cab will be at your beck-and-call within a radius of 50km of the city centres of Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, East London, George, PE, Cape Town and Kimberley. Should you need us to travel a little further, an extra fee will be payable in cash directly to the driver.
What about your buddies or BFFs
Whether they're your mates, buddies, girlfriends or BFFs... If they were your wingmen (or women) while partying, you can't leave them out in the cold. As an associated member of our royal family, we'll happily collect 2 of your friends who are with you, as long as we can collect and drop everyone off at the same place. Can you say 'after-party'?
If your busy social calendar requires it, you're more than welcome to summon the king's cab more than 6 times, but then you'll just need to pay for the service yourself. You may still book these trips with the king's cab, on 0860 50 50 50. These extra fees will be payable by you in cash.
