Rydo powers a network of thousands of taxis across Australia. We are the new kids on the block, but we bring the power of a network with over 15,000 cars.
You can pre-book a taxi when heading to the airport, or for that important business meeting. When you pre-book a taxi, it works much the same way as an instant booking, there are just a few more steps.
Open the app and tap the ‘Pre-book’ button. Then check your pick-up location and enter your destination.
On the next screen, enter the date and time you would like to be picked up, the number of passengers, luggage and any further details. Hit next, and you will be able to select your taxi type and edit your payment method. If you need to change the date or time of pick up, simply hit ‘Ride Options’.
Finally, hit the ‘Pre-book Taxi’ button and your pre-booked taxi will be confirmed. When your pre-booked taxi arrives, on the specified date and time you have requested, your driver will send you a text message to let you know they are ready! Alternatively, you can book a taxi by calling 131 001.
If you need to cancel a pre-booked taxi, you can do so via the side menu in the app under ‘My Trips’.
Alternatively, you can pre-book on our online booking platform. It’s as simple as entering your pick-up location and your destination.
After entering in your pick-up location and destination, you will need to choose between ‘Book Now’ or ‘Book Later’. After selecting your booking, you will receive the travel distance and the estimated travel time to that destination. You will then be prompted to select the type of taxi service (standard taxi, station wagon or maxi cab). An estimated fare will be shown based on the travel distance and you will be required to enter your full name and mobile number to confirm the booking.
That’s how easy it is to pre-book a taxi online.
