Luggage Rates: First 25kg no charge - then 10c for each subsequent 25kg or part thereof. Maximum payable 55c
Toll and ferry Charges: The hirer must pay all road, bridge, ferry, tunnel and airport tolls that apply to the journey.
Maxi Cabs: Except in the case of a multiple hiring, where 75% of the authorised fare applies, all the above maximum fares and charges apply only in the case of the maxi-cab hire from a taxi zone or hailed on the street to carry up to 5 passengers. For any other hiring (except a multiple hiring) up to 150% of the above maximum fares and charges may be charged.
The last bit is a tad confusing and I had to read it about 4 times to get it. What it means is if you hire a maxi-cab from a taxi stand or on the street, the normal taxi fares apply. If you ring and specifically order one because you have a larger party it costs 150% of the normal fare.
In addition there is a $2.50 airport toll for taxis. And any other tolls incurred have to be paid by the passenger. You will possibly go via the Eastern Distrbutor into the city which has a toll of $4.50
