Fee Structures

Introduction

Kidos Cabbie believes in offering our clients best value for money and have compiled the following summaries of different options available, tailor made to suit our client’s individual needs.  

Mandatory Preliminary Fees

Registration fee – please take note that an upfront registration fee of R200 is required to be paid with the completion of every application form. Upon receipt of the registration fee, processing of the application will commence. This process includes placing advertisements to meet the client’s individual needs, as well as screening and interviewing possible drivers. Please note that a screening and selection of suitable drivers may take between 5 - 10 days. The registration fee is fully refundable if no potential candidate is presented within a month.

Placements

Kidos Cabbie offers two types of placement options, permanent, temporary.

Permanent Placement

This option is suitable for families who have a fixed schedule for their children and require a driver for a specific number of hours each day, week and month, i.e. driving the children to and from school every day, and driving the children to specific extra mural activities during the week. For this scenario we offer the services of independent permanent drivers. Kidos Cabbie is responsible for recruiting a driver for the children as per the client’s requirements. The driver selected is an independent sub‑contractor of Kidos Cabbie and will conclude an agreement with the parents/legal guardians directly. Notwithstanding the nature of the agreement, Kidos Cabbie retains the responsibility of ensuring that its client’s needs are met and that the client is satisfied with the services rendered. Kidos Cabbie takes no commission from the driver and only levies a monthly service fee that includes:

  • A contract fee as Kidos Cabbie provides the contract to be concluded between the client and the driver;
  • Access to our temporary driver’s scheme in the event of an emergency, i.e. in the event that the Client’s driver is ill or absent due to personal reasons (family emergency, on leave, etc.);
  • Availability of new drivers in the event that the Client is no longer satisfied with the services / conduct of his / her / their existing driver or chooses not to renew the contract of the existing driver upon its expiry.  In the event of any of the above circumstances occurring, a replacement fee of R100.00 will be levied against the party responsible for the misconduct or cancellation.
  • Liaising with the parties regarding petrol price fluctuations and adjustments to the recommended rate per km, etc.; and
  • Performing any and all administrative tasks.

Temporary Placement

This option is suitable for families that require an ad hoc driver as and when the need arises and/or who do not have a fixed schedule of activities for their minor children. For this scenario Kidos Cabbie offers its clients the services of temporary drivers and Kidos Cabbie is responsible for recruiting a driver for the children as per the client’s requirements. The service contract is concluded between the Client and Kidos Cabbie (such contracts are concluded for a maximum period of two months, renewable), and all fees are to be paid to Kidos Cabbie who in turn will disburse all operational costs including driver’s fees. Kidos Cabbie retains the responsibility of ensuring that its client’s needs are met and that the client is satisfied with the services rendered. The applicable costs for temporary driver services include:

  • An upfront once-off placement fee of R500 for the contract period (less than one month and a maximum of two months);
  • A contract fee as Kidos Cabbie provides the contract to be concluded between the client and the driver;
  • Liaising with the parties regarding petrol price fluctuations and adjustments to the recommended rate per km, etc.; and
  • Performing any and all administrative tasks.

Payment Structures & Conditions

Kidos Cabbie service fees must be paid within 3 days from the date of invoice (which will be issued on the 27th day of every month), quoting the Client’s initials and surname as reference. In the event of a permanent contract, the driver’s payments are to be made to the driver directly on/or before the first day of each month in accordance with the hours worked and kilometers driven.

Please note that all rates are calculated per hour driven and not per child; and the kilometers traveled are calculated from the pick up point to drop off point(s), the first pick up point for the day is calculated as an hour and second pick up point is calculated per minute. If the distance between school/home and activity is more than 15km, the kilometer rate will no longer be R4.75c it will be R4.90c from pick up to drop off point but is subject to change in accordance with petrol price fluctuations.
