Tip 3

We are huge advocates of responsible driving. Every New Years we witness drivers  being arrested on DUI charges. Be smart and call a cab if you drinking tonight. Aint nobody gots time to be locked up this NY.

Tip 4

Travel with known taxi companies – its always a good idea to research more than one taxi company. Cape Town has been filled with illegal taxi operators over the last 3 years and statistics show an alarming spike in attacks within pirate taxis, often the case where customers are taken advantage of when intoxicated. We encourage vigilance; look for the branded cabs and only use taxi services which have long standing reputations.

Tip 5

Find alternative available parking options on the out skirts of the city and consider walking to your destination to avoid sitting in hours of traffic.

Follow these tips and you could save yourself allot of time and stress this NY.

We at the Baker Group wish you a safe and enjoyable New Years.
