I regularly get cabs from Chatswood near the train station and the fair is about $28 to $32 dollars if there's traffic. The cab last night charged me $44. I asked for a receipt and noticed it didn't say pick up or drop off suburb names. Cheats.

Got a GM cab home from the airport which normally costs around $60, I didn't check the meter or the amount enetred on the efpos machine, my fault should have. Noticed later my credit card had been hit $91. The driver basically stole. Try to avoid GM cabs. Now you know why Uber is successful.

Having travelled from LHR- SYD with only a 2 hour stopover in SIN, took a taxi from the Official Rank at airport. Charged $89 AUD for ride into town. Thought it a bit steep! Turns out my friends who used other companies were charged half that! AVOID this company!! On way back to airport, used a limo service, dropped friends at domestic airport and us back to international -$75AUD total!!

Just got in a cab from Sydney airport to my home. Meter was $20 more than we would usually pay which I complained about. Driver reduced fare but when I checked my credit card statement he has charged us nearly $40 more than we agreed on. I have checked reviews online and this happens all the time. They will rip you off. Avoid at all costs.

We arrived at Sydney airport from Canada exhausted and my wife was ill. Thought it best to take a taxi to our airbnb in Bondi Beach area. I asked what the rate was approximately- told it depends on meter. Most big cities I visit have a flat rate depending where you going or at least give you an idea. The driver seemed to go forever and the bill came to a bit more than 132 dollars- I have never paid that for a city cab ever. Most people from Sydney said I was cheated as did othe family who did a similar trip. An Uber XL back for FIVE of us was 67 dollars. I know its cheaper by uber but this difference? I contacted the company who were very unsympathetic. Would " look into it" in five business days. Many days later NO RESPONSE. My advise? Be very very wary using a cab at Sydney airport and if its a GM cab get another.
