Why it’s a good idea to get the king’s cab with your car insurance

Good ideas are hard to come by… I mean, there are plenty of ideas to be had, but very few of them are good.

Take a look at an idea I came up with last night: A series of phrase books to allow dog owners to communicate better with their pets. The first edition will be ‘Alsatians’, followed by ‘Border Collie’, then ‘Chihuahua’…. You get the picture. Is this new publishing adventure a good idea? According to the 8 publishing houses I’ve pitched it to so far…. No, it isn’t.

So to get back to my point, not all ideas are created equal and it’s very rare to find one that everyone can agree is good…  Very good!

But our king’s cab, is one such idea. You see, when you have comprehensive car insurance with King Price/ us (and with our super cheap premiums that decrease monthly, why wouldn’t you?), you can add the king’s cab to your list of benefits for a minimal additional amount every month.

The king’s cab is a personalised chauffer service that King Price clients can call day or night* to get them and their cars home when they’re in a bit of a jam. Whether that ‘1 drink’ after work has turned into 4, or whether you suddenly feel too ill to drive home, the king’s cab has got your back. We’ll send 2 drivers to your location- 1 who will drive you and your car home, and another who will follow to bring the driver back once he has dropped you off safely.

You don’t have to make any unsafe, late night stops to ATMs to draw cash to pay for the rides, since the cost of the cab is already added to your monthly premium (although you may have to chip in a little more if you live further than 50km outside the city centre of Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, East London, George, PE, Cape Town and Kimberley).

King Price clients who do choose to add the king’s cab to their cover get to use this service 6 times a year- although you are welcome to use it as many times as you like, but there will be an additional fee. Have you seen the petrol price? That’s at least 6 times that you don’t have to worry about how you are going to get home… 6 times you don’t have to worry about the extra expense of a taxi… 6 times you can rest easy knowing that the king will get you home just fine. Remember, your safety is always our concern, always.

*We don’t take new king’s cab bookings between 01h00 and 05h30 in the morning….Our drivers have to get their beauty sleep in sometime.
