I, for one, will never use Elite Taxis again, and I recommend to anyone reading this that they use another service whenever possible (like C*****). The driver I found in Obs refused to turn on his meter at first, telling me that the ride to Checkers (Kloof) would be R90. I finally got him to put the meter on, and when I arrived, the meter read R72. As I was getting my money out, he reached across, pressed a button on the meter, and it jumped to R86. He saw I had only a R100 note, so he gave me just R10 back. I argued that the fare had been R72; he replied that the fare was R90. I was extremely late (which he knew, since I'd been on the phone during the ride), so I decided to just take the R10 and go, resolving never to use this service again. C***** have proven to be reliable, honest and very competitive, pricewise.
