Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

General questions

Our seating configurations are listed when you are making a reservation. We typically list seating capacity as X +1 where X = number of passengers and the +1 is the chauffeur / driver
We try to allocate the cab and driver as soon as possible. Please check your reservation confirmation email. In there you find a "Live booking updates URL". As soon as your cab and driver are allocated, the details become visible there. In anycase, the details are made available to you well ahead of your time of travel
Many of our cabs are equipped with Fast tags but its not the case on all our cabs. Our cabs that ply on common highway routes tend to be equipped with Fast Tag but we cannot promise or commit to this being the case for all Gozo cabs
Currently we do not support in-app messaging between the customer and the driver. We do have support for in app messaging between the driver and Gozo dispatch team but direct messaging between the customer and driver is not support. For our customers, who are traveling and have international phone numbers, you can always chat with our 24x7 support team via the gozo website and they can assist you with contacting your driver.
When Gozo provides a quotation, we do not use Googles estimate of distance. Our cars are regularly driving on the routes and we have a clearer estimation of the total distance expected to be travelled. By default the included kms in a booking are based on our expectation of the distance to be travelled. Our goal is to ensure that the distance travelled by the customer is lesser than the amount we include in the booking, so that you do not have to pay more than what we told you in your confirmation email.
In anycase if the actual distance travelled by the car is beyond the amount we included in the booking, the customer is liable to pay for the extra kms travelled. The drivers app will calculate the extra amount payable by the traveler.
Most of our drivers do use GPS to track the route but it is not implemented compulsorily. But customers can track their route through Google Map as we use that to track locations. Moreover, we have 24*7 customer service over web chat & call, customers can contact us for any doubts they have.
The driver will surely wait for you provided you have shared the flight number and arrival time in the booking so that the driver can monitor your flight arrival time. There are no waiting charges up to first 30 minutes after that per minute waiting charges as listed in your booking confirmation shall apply.
We provide only A/C cars. The A/C system is expected to be always working during the trip. The only exception is for trips to hilly areas where the A/C needs to be turned off for driving in hilly region to prevent overload on the car engine.
Sure, we can arrange multiple pickups or drops for your itinerary. Please let us know about all the details of your itinerary and we can make the arrangements.

Please be aware that you will get billed ₹150/- for every additional pickup, drop address and waypoints added to your itinerary. You are responsible for the additional kms driven beyond the included kms on your trip.

It is required that the entire itinerary be documented in your reservation. So please let us know of your planned itinerary so that its documented and that the driver has all the information ahead of your trip start time. The quoted price will change based on multiple factors including but not limited to the itinerary, waypoints, driving terrain, local union fees, local restrictions and estimated distances to be driven.

We normally accept reservations upto 6months in advance, with most our customers sharing their plans with us at least 3 months ahead.
We are happy to support your requests for adding additional pickups, waypoints, stopovers or drop addresses.

However these changes mean that your itinerary needs to be updated and such changes may translate into a change in your quoted prices.

One Way trips are simple point to point journeys that are run on a tight schedule. A driver who is taking you from City A to City B is already scheduled for another pckup in City B. So, no unscheduled deviations or stops or detours are permitted on a one-way trip. Your one-way journey may be cancelled by the driver and the fulll cost of the trip will be payable by you if you choose to add unplanned stops, detours, waypoints or sight seeing detours to your one-way journey. Please read the detailed terms in your reservation confirmation email and also on our website.
Cab availability is deeply affected by demand. We encourage you to always book atleast 1 week before your day of travel. By booking atleast 1 week in advance, you can get our best price and also be assured to get a cab assigned to your trip.

Booking prices rise very fast as demand goes up and supply goes down. There is very high demand for licensed/commercial cabs for same or next day travel and in such cases we may not be able to provide you the best rate and sometimes we may also not be able to allocate a cab at the last minute.
As per RTO requirements, our cabs are only passenger transport vehicles and may not be used for Goods transport. If you are carrying electronics for personal use like laptop etc, you may sure travel with that. However, please refrain from carrying products like TVs or other items for the purpose of transporting goods. This is not permitted and you may find yourself at odds with local law enforcement and you shall bear the responsibiity for such actions.
You can see your Gozo coins and wallet cash on our website. Simply log in at www.gozocabs.com, select " My Profle " then click on " Check Balances ". Your Gozo coins & Wallet cash details will show on that screen.
Sorry, as per RTO rules we are unable to transport items in the cab other than luggage and personal items. Cabs are not allowed to be used for transporting goods of any type if not accompanied by the owner or person responsible for those items.
Starting October 2018, we have introduced our Gozo Flexxi SHARE service. You can now rent a seat in a outstation cab provided by Gozo. Visit www.gozocabs.com/GozoSHARE to learn more.

Some customers tip the driver for their good service but that is upto your discretion. Please be sure to rate your driver at the end of the trip. Based on your rating, Gozo drivers can receive a cash bonus from Gozo when they provide 5 star service.
Of course you can do that. Prices for items (products or services) that are ordered with assistance from a team member may be priced slightly higher than the prices on self-service platforms (website or mobile apps). These support facility charges are included in your order price to cover the costs of the support facilities & personnel involved in enabling such orders. Upon cancellation of such (assisted) orders, applicable support facility charges shall not be refunded. These costs are already incurred by us as part of providing the support facilities and hence these charges shall be added to the cancellation charges applicable to your order upon its cancellation.

Pricing

Unlike other providers, Gozo provides one-way fares. One-way transport is not provided based on per km rates as it depends on our ability to be able to offer a rate that is better than the per km basis rate. In addition, Gozo's business model is one where we focus on providing full upfront pricing transparency, 24x7 support and pre-verified cabs. As a result of this we focus on providing a specialized quotation on a per booking basis as opposed to per km pricing.
Price is what you pay and value is what you get.



At Gozo, we focus on delivering the highest value for a fair price. In addition, our quotes are transparent with no pricing surprises later. Our philosophy is to not just get your business today but to get it forever after.



Sure it is possible that you may get a quote lower than ours, and thats where its important that you compare apples to apples.



When looking at a lower quote, here are some pricing traps to watch for...



  • Is the vehicle commercially licensed (YELLOW NUMBER PLATE) and driver commercially licensed? You do not want to travel in a private vehicle. Its not only illegal but also unsafe to use a private vehicle instead of one with a commercial permit
  • Private vehicles are either uninsured or inadequately insured, lack commercial permits, evade paying tourist taxes and fees and may be using drivers with questionable driving experience or records.
  • Most companies will low ball you with quotes that only include base fare and may quote too few included kms for your trip. (That's a classic bait and switch scam)
  • Those providers would add on daily driver allowances, state taxes, toll taxes, excess km charges to your final bill and extort you for far more money than you had expected. This will lead to a unpleasant experience. Gozo always provides you a written quote (our confirmation email has all the details...read it carefully) and its best that you compare our written quote with theirs.
Transparent apples-apples comparison is best when you are comparing Gozo's pricing with others. You will find that in 99% of the situations, you not only save more but also have a great experience with Gozo. With Gozo you get a good price and great value.
Sir/Mam , the price of a cab depends upon the availability and demand of the cab in that particular route for that particular date

Creating or modifying a booking

Gozo's system requires our travelers to provide their street addresses for the pickup and drop locations. If for some reason, the Gozo system does not recognize a street address you are typing, you may type an address that is close-enough (within a few hundred metres) or you may click the icon on the right side of the address checkbox and place a pin at your desired location on the map.
You can provide us the requirements and we will update the same in the booking.
We then add special request in the additional informations to make the vendor & driver aware.
You need to mention the exact pick up and drop address while paying the advance amount for confirming the booking.
Sir/Mam, our cabs are being sanitised before starting the trip and after completing the trip with that the driver wear mask and gloves and carries a extra pair with them always
We require the the pickup address be a business address or a well known address. For the security of the driver, we do not accept 'street intersections' as pickup addresses.
For each booking, We provide you with a URL in your confirmation email.
Your cab and driver detail will be listed on this URL as soon as the cab and driver are allocated for your trip.
This URL is your goto location for all information and updates regarding the booking.
Please login to the Gozo website. Go to the My bookings section and you can make changes to your booking directly on the website by selecting the specific booking in booking history list. You can change your pickup date, time or add special instructions into the TEXT BOX.

We have also started to service Airport transfers at all major airports across India. So you can now use Gozo for chauffeur driven airport pickups and drops from all major airports in India.
You have taken the vehicle for the allocated amount of kms and you are free to use the vehicle for that allocated amount of kms as specified in your booking confirmation.

Any trips you make outside of the cities listed in your itinerary shall be chargeable at a higher rate per km.

As a best practice, we require that all the cities that you plan to visit should be listed in your written trip confirmation provided to you by Gozo. This way you have complete clarity on the pricing for the trip and the driver and operator have received proper communication regarding your trip plan. Our model ensures that there is no confusion and the price quote you receive from Gozo takes your entire trip plan into account. By using this best practice you can avoid any surprises in terms of additional charges for kms driven or changes to itinerary.
Gozo specializes in intercity / outstation transportation services all over India. Each state has different rules and requirements for use of tourist vehicles. In addition, there are restrictions placed on where tourist vehicles can travel to based on rules set by local unions or city ordinances.

All vehicles you hire are quoted with a fixed amount of kms associated with the exact itinerary listed in your confirmation. Usage of the vehicle outside of the documented itinerary and/or beyond the listed kms may be subject to additional charges. Your use of the vehicle is limited to the activities that are clearly listed on your booking confirmation (booking contract)

Example 1: If you are traveling from City A to City B and back, then you may use the vehicle to leave from City A, goto City B, travel within City B (as long as its within the quoted kms) and return back to City A.

If you wish to make short trips outside of City B to points of interest or tourist sites in towns/cities neighboring to City B, this needs to be first clearly listed in your trip plan. If its not listed in your trip plan this activity is not included and will be chargeable as extra. The rate per km that gets billed will be higher for hilly roads vs flat terrain

Example 2: If you are taking a one-way transfer from city A to city B, then you can only take the vehicle from your pickup address to your drop address. Any intermediate pickup points (pick a friend, drop a friend etc) will need to be specified in your booking confirmation (booking contract) and would be separately billable if not listed on the contract.

We care for our customers and work hard to meet all your requests. We want you to have a special trip or vacation. Simply give us a call and we will work with you provide you the best solution for your needs.

Example 3: If you are hiring a vehicle for a round trip from City A to to City B and back to City A, you must let us know if you desire to use the vehicle for local sight-seeing in City A (city of departure). We need a clear itinerary of your plan so it can be documented & communicated to the driver

Any use of the vehicle outside of what is documented in your trip itinerary is considered unauthorized and may be subject to additional charges.
Yes sir/mam, in case of round trip the driver will pick up you from the pick up City and will stay with you for the entire trip as well as he will be taking you for the sightseeing too and at the end he will drop you in the drop city .
We encourage you to make a note in your reservation under the additional requests section. We try our best to accomodate all additional requests but cannot commit to it for each reservation. This is why having your reservation and additional requests ahead of time helps us make the proper arrangements.

If the driver asks you for additional payment claiming extra kms driven or tolls or parking charges, please always ask the driver to provide a 'duty slip' with the details of the payment being requested.

Taxi Operators & Suppliers

Gozo only works with operators who can provided licensed commercial cabs. We do not onboard operators who have white-plate vehicles. Only operators with yellow-license plate vehicles may join Gozo.
Our taxi operators are continously meeting with new clients who need help. From time to time when a taxi driver is unable to drive a customer to a specific destination, they go ahead and create a booking for the customer in the Gozo platfrom. By doing this, the customer receives reliable service. The booking that is created becomes a revenue opportunity for another taxi driver in our network. For all bookings created by our taxi operators (as travel agents), Gozo drastically lowers its platform use fees as our way to extend support to our taxi driver community to make more money.
Gozo's vision is to be the most trusted platform for travel & tourism. We provide customers with quality cabs at best possible prices. We keep our operating costs so we can provide the best prices to custoemr and the highest money making opportunity to taxi driver partners. For partners our guidelines are simple - (1) Be on time for pickups (2) Provide great customer service - clean car, polite behavior, be honest with the customer & follow the law (3) Grow your business, make money by abiding to these guidelines. Our promise to you is - better your services, the more business you will get from the Gozo platform. Sometimes our partners violate the above guidelines and that causes bad experience for customers, hurts Gozo's reputation and even hurts other partners who are following guidelines. As a disciplinary measure, we apply penalties to those who violate guidelines. We compensate partners with in Gozo coins when they follow guidelines and get great cusotmer ratings. Good partners make mistake sometimes but they can easily pay for those using the Gozo coins they have earned (does not affect your pocket). But bad behaving partners get penalties and eventually get blocked by our system. The ultimate goal of penalties is to encourage good behavior from taxi partners, follow guidelines so you can get the best ratings from customers and grow your business. Always remember, travel business is a service-oriented business. Business grows for those whose service is best. Gozo has teams for customer & vendor advocacy.

(4) Taxi operators who brand their car with gozo stickers also get incentives. Ask us about 'bid boost'
When we started Gozo, we observed most of the taxi bookings across India were done with travel agents. In most of these cases we observed that the customer paid a hefty fee to the travel agent but little of that money actually made it to the taxi owner/driver. So we adopted a model where any taxi owners can work directly with Gozo and get business continuously as long as they provide good customer service.When you work with Gozo, you get access to business every day. There is enough business opportunity for everyone. Simply focus on providing a great experience at your best possible prices. We want our partners to make money so we're constantly learning from your bids and adjusting the prices we show customers. Simply ask for the prices you need and if they are aligned with market prices we will keep sending you the business.

We regularly send out training and update videos to our Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/Gozocabs so that drivers and partners can watch the training at their own convenient time.
Once you have an approved driver or cab, the requirments are simple - (1) use the Driver app to serve bookings (2) Arrive on time at the pickup location with the same car and driver. (3) Make sure car is clean and sanitized (4) Start/stop/pause trip using the app and continue to use the app for the entire journey. (4) Any issues you can request a call back from driver app for quickest response while on trip. (5) Make sure you are providing good customer service and getting a 5 star rating for your trip
