Cleaning Fees

Drivers should be active and consistent in maintaining vehicle cleanliness to promote quality service and ensure a safe, comfortable trip for passengers.

Stains caused by passengers and process to be followed by drivers:

During a journey, if a passenger stains your car because of vomiting, food/drink spills, soiled clothing or baggage, the passenger is responsible for covering the costs of cleaning.

Taxify will attempt to recover cleaning costs from the passenger and then reimburse these costs to the driver.

Drivers should report a staining incident to our Support Team immediately through the app and provide us with the following:

  • Details of the ride (time, date, passenger)
  • Pictures of damage/stain (please take at least three different photos close-up and afar)
  • After reporting the incident, drivers should get their cars cleaned and send us a receipt via the app or by email to

The receipt should contain:

  • The name and ABN details of the car cleaning company
  • The services provided (i.e. car-cleaning) and the cost of the service

Taxify will then take action and attempt to recover the cost of the cleaning from the passenger responsible for the damage.

Compensation Tiers

Cleaning costs that may be reimbursed will be subject to the following limits:

  • $50 for minor spills and cleans
  • $90 for mid-range spills and cleans
  • $120 for major spills and cleans

Note: We will only accept one cleaning compensation request which does not follow the above procedure.

Any further requests for cleaning compensation that does not comply with our procedure will be declined.
