1. Where can I find maxi taxi fare estimator also called maxi taxi fare calculator?

There are few to get a fare estimate but we can tell you now, none of them will be accurate. Basically the trick is “You get what you pay for.” Taxi Services Commission has a website which tells you how much a trip should cost at any time of the day but we can assure you, they cant tell if the driver will be on time, If the driver will actually turn up or even worse if they will even have the received your booking. If you want to check TSC taxi fare estimator, you can always head to http://taxi.vic.gov.au/passengers/taxi-passengers/taxi-fares/taxi-fare-estimator or alternatively we have put together a small guide called maxi taxi fare calculator.
But the best option would be to ring us on 03 5996 5291 and we can give you exact price for your travel.

9. What is the difference between maxi taxi and normal taxi?

Maxi Taxi is a 10 seater van whereas a normal taxi is a 4 seater sedan taxi. Maxi Taxi can comfortable accomodate 8 people with their luggage but if you are 4 or less than 4 passengers then you can always book a sedan taxi. The only thing to keep in mind when booking sedan taxi is it has very minutes boot space as they also have gas tank in boot so it could only fit one big luggage in the boot.

Mostly if you have doubt about the quantity of luggage, we recommend you to take maxi taxi or airport shuttle as it only costs $20 extra but you have peace of mind that it will be accomodated in a maxi taxi van.
