If you take taxis quite often, you might be interested in a new monthly account scheme from Blue Bird group. I use it now and it is handy. They give you a book of vouchers and you just fillone in and give it to the driver each time without paying. Every month they send you a bill and if there is no problem with it, do nothing and after 10 days they bill your credit card, after deducting 20% off the total (limited period only). Biggest benefit is no more of the old "NO CHANGE MISTERRRRRRRRR!" ploy. But don''t lose the book of vouchers because they are literally blank cheques. So far no false charges. Another benefit is if you lose something, you have a record of the driver name and car number in your little book.

No I''m not on a commission before you ask.

One more reason for the cruddy taxi companies to trash the bluebird cars, like they did in Bandung when they entered the market and brought a bit of quality control with them.

Yep Jokie love, safety is the most important, so I trust all "Bird" specially at night but even though like that we should very sure for everything, for the ID card and licence of the driver, the number of taxi etc and maybe to make more comfortable we can ask him to chat but always stay alert wink
