gift Cards & Vouchers
Finding the perfect gift for a friend or family member can be a harrowing task. You want something that shows you’ve really put some thought into the purchase. It needs to reflect the person’s interests and lifestyle, but still be unique enough that they don’t already own one. Creativity is really the key here. So what can you get for someone that will let them know you truly care?
Our suggestion: a taxi gift card. We know, you’re probably thinking, “what?” Give us a moment to explain.
Obviously a gift card is something that can fit any budget. Whether you are looking to spend $20 or $500, the amount can be loaded onto one of our cards for your recipient to use. Each time they use the card, the cost of the trip will be deducted from the balance.
At some point or another, 99% of Americans will require the services of a taxi*. During an emergency, a taxi gift card can prove to be an invaluable asset. Personal vehicles may break down unexpectedly, leaving your loved one stranded on the road or unable to get to work. In such a situation, having a gift card on hand will allow them the freedom to get to where they need to go with minimal stress, and give them the necessary time to make alternate arrangements for transportation until their car can be fixed.

It also serves as a strong encouragement for your loved ones to act responsibly when they are out on the town. If they’ve had a few drinks during the course of the evening, they can simply call a taxi to take them home and use the gift card to pay without feeling as though they are “splurging” on the service.
Those who rely on public transit will especially appreciate your gift of convenience the next time the weather is bad or their bus is late. Aside from a nice treat, it can be a lifesaver for them to be able to call a taxi in a pinch without having to think of their finances or questioning the necessity of it.
There are a multitude of ways in which our taxi gift card can make life easier for your loved ones. It is useful for virtually any occasion that requires leaving the house, and can be applied as deemed fit by the holder. Whether they choose to save it for a (literal) rainy day or spend it on a special outing to see a band that they like, your gift is going towards getting them to a place where they are going to have a good time, keeping them safe, helping them in a time of need, or possibly even all of the above.
We also sell vouchers in bulk for event or corporate use. Vouchers are treated as a contribution towards a single fare. Typically they are purchased in smaller denominations of $5, $10, or $20. If the voucher does not cover the cost of the trip in full, the user will pay the difference. However, the driver is not required to give any change if the voucher exceeds the cost of the trip. They are an ideal way to help alleviate transportation costs for conference goers, as well as an appropriate addition to events where alcohol will be available, such as wedding receptions and galas, as a reminder and encouragement for guests to use a taxi service. Taxi vouchers can add value to your event and act as a small expression of gratitude, while addressing your responsibility as a host to look out for the well-being of the guests in attendance.
