Card Verification Charge

Taxify performs a temporary card verification check (pre-authorisation), done at a fixed rate of $25, to check your card's validity and minimise/avoid any fraudulent and unauthorised use of your card and information.

This booking may appear as an extra charge on your card and applies only to your first ride.

If the cost of your first trip is less than $25, the difference is returned to your account (it may appear as a separate line with the same comment, depending on your bank interface).

When the price of the ride is more than $25, the extra cost is added to the initial booking and the sum of the pre-authorisation and extra cost will be charged (both the pre-authorisation amount and additional amount may appear as separate bookings, depending on your bank interface).
