There has never been a better time to get a cab.

The Australian government had reduced some burdensome regulations allowing the taxi industry to fight back for the benefit of the consumer.

Select from a price comparison or set your own price

At Destarny we always show the suggested surge multiplier (market demand) which can go up but it may also go below the X1.0 standard rate for off-peak periods.

After entering your destination we show a trip estimate — price comparison — with multiple booking options. 

Ultimately you may set your own price and be notified within 60 seconds if a driver committed to your request!

Flash phone to request a discount

When hailing a Destarny taxi with a flashing phone our drivers recognise the light pattern and know you're requesting a rideshare price match from the Destarny app. 

If you can’t see a cab you can make a booking with the press of a button on the Destarny app.

Alternatively you can do an advanced booking such as a set-fare booking by naming your own price.

To use our app we require you to register with a valid credit card for spam and security reasons but once registered you can pay cash, a physical card in the vehicle or simply use one of the cards on your account.

Shared Taxi Rides

A shared taxi is 50%, 66% or 75% cheaper depending on the number of passengers in the car. 

A shared taxi is great for the morning commute from Bondi to the City or along any major arterial roads when everyone is travelling in a common direction.

The split fare is calculated automatically regardless where people get in or out and unlike car pools we pass on the full discount to the consumer.

A shared taxi can be identified by the orange light on the roof and the Destarny app displays the destination and discount available for each vehicle.

For short trips a shared taxi is a true  bus alternative and may end up cheaper.
