The 13cabs Price Guarantee is a fixed price set at the time of booking within the 13cabs app to get from point A to B. This is the final price that the customer will pay. No additional charges apply.
When passengers set their pick up and drop off destination in the 13cabs app, our pricing tools plots the fastest route calculated by Google Maps from point A to B. The price is then calculated using a number of factors, including predicted trip time and distance, traffic conditions, state government fees, levies, and tolls.
With Price Guarantee, Passengers can sit back and relax without having to check the meter, along with price certainty when comparing prices when making travel decisions. Price Guarantee is only available when booking with the 13cabs app or booking online at book.13cabs.com.au in selected locations.

If you have something you need to get somewhere fast, jump on the website or tap ‘Delivery’ in your 13cabs app and follow the prompts. Just let the seller know you’ll be sending a 13cabs driver to pick it up, then jump on the 13cabs website or your 13cabs app. Enter the seller’s pick up address and your address as the destination.
If it fits inside a 13cabs vehicle – a large sedan SUV or a MAXI TAXI – 13cabs will deliver it door to door. Drivers will not pick up any illegal items or dangerous goods. This includes, but not limited to fireworks, stolen goods, drugs, weapons, explosives, fuel and hazardous material.
Items that cannot be secured properly inside the cab by the Driver and items that aren’t flat packed. Please note, 13cabs Drivers do not carry tie down straps for securing large or bulky items.
