    I am planning on making my journeys in Chennai from the Fast Track Call Taxi service. I would like to know how reliable their taxi service is and whether they arrive on time or not.

    They have shown the rate as Rs8 per km is this correct?

    Hi there, welcome to the forum!

    Fast Track Call Taxi

    One of the proponents of the call taxi services in Chennai, the Fast Track Call Taxi, is a known name when it comes to cab services in the city. Established in 2001, the company has been in the industry for over 15 years now, truly a testament to their experience when it comes to cab services. The company has over 6,000 cabs, though they don't really own these vehicles, much like Uber. These drivers and their cabs sign up for the company, they are inspected and if they pass the qualifications, they are accepted as part of the Fast Track Call Taxi. They company also conducts inspections every three months to make sure that the vehicles still abide by their standards. The company is also available in other major cities like Bangalore, Coimbatore, Dindigul, Erode, Hyderabad, Munnar, Mysore, Pondicherry and many more.

    How Fast Track Call Taxi Works?

    You have three options in booking a cab from Fast Track Call Taxi:
    • By booking a cab through their call centre
    • By logging in their website and booking a cab from there
    • By downloading their application (Available for both Android and Apple devices) and booking a cab from there
    With the first option, you can dial their Chennai number or their nationwide number. Either way works as they will connect you to an available driver and cab. With the second option, you can just register an account with their website and book a cab yourself. You just need a working email address so that the confirmation link would be sent to you. If you need to book a cab thereafter, just login to the website using your email address and you're good to go. With the last option, you can just search for the Fast Track Call Taxi application on the Play Store or the Apple Store, then download it from there. You need WiFi though or data services to book a cab directly from your phone or tablet.

    Fast Track Call Taxi Rates

    When it comes to the fare rates of the Fast Track Call Taxi, they differ depending on whether you avail of their metered service, package service or outstation service. Thus, beforehand, make sure you inquire about their rate per kilometre, although I'd still post their rates here. But for an up to date rate per kilometre, nothing beats asking the customer service of the company. Charges also differ depending on the type of cab you hire so you need to make sure what type of vehicle is assigned to you.

    Reviews About the Fast Track Call Taxi Service

    Generally, the reviews about the services of the Fast Track Call Taxi Services are a mixture of good and bad ones. Some have reported that their drivers and cabs didn't show up while others only have praises for the company. As such, it actually depends on your luck, on what kind of driver is assigned to you, either a good one or a bad one. A good feature of the Fast Track Call Taxi Service though is that their rates are fixed. As compared to Ola or Uber that have surge pricing during peak hours, the Fast Track Call Taxi Service doesn't have that. So the rates posted above are the actual fares you get.

    The verdict is that, if you need a cab service for long-distance travels, you're better off choosing Fast Track Call Taxi. You can book a taxi in advance too, even a day before your scheduled trip or travel. Whatever package you choose, the rates you get are usually fixed and so you won't need to pay excess rates given by drivers. However, do keep in mind that some passengers have reported that even with advanced booking, their drivers didn't show up. So that's one risk you have to take when booking a cab with this company.

    For non-peak hours though, the rates of Fast Track Call Taxi Service are higher. You would have noticed that above, as you compare these rates to the Ola or Uber rates. But another good feature of the company is that they operate all-day long, until the wee hours of the morning. So if you need a cab even during 1:00 am, you can book a taxi with them.

    I hope this helps you.:)
