Friends DD strives to offer the very best designated driver service and great prices.
SAVE A WHOPPING 20% when you reserve your ride 4 or more hours in advance!
(Friday and Saturday 9pm to 4am excluded)
Our regular fare is a $21 pickup fee and $2.40 per km with a $40 minimum fare. All fares are measured on the Taximeter APP that our drivers have on their cell phones. You are shown the meter and you can trust the accuracy of the fare.
Compare our fare to other companies with a $25 or higher pickup fee and $2.50 or higher per km and $50 or higher minimum fares and then you have to trust the drivers to tell you the correct fare based on the odometer of the chase vehicle – which you don’t get to see.
Example of Fares
When our customers book their safe rides early, we can more accurately determine how many cars we should have on the road, we can better coordinate rides to connect to each other AND that means we can offer our customers a substantial saving for booking ahead. A WHOPPING 20% SAVING (Friday and Saturday 9pm to 4am excluded).
We have the MOST FLEXIBLE SERVICE. Learn how to adjust your pickup time to how your evening is progressing and you can keep your 20% saving AND get the pickup time you want.
- If you no longer need a safe ride, you can cancel your safe ride anytime with a one hour notice. If you think you may need a safe ride tonight, we would rather you make a reservation and cancel rather than phone at the last minute when we may not have a driver available at the time you want.
- Use our Flexible Pickup Time policy to adjust your pickup time to how your evening is progressing. To learn how our Flexible Pickup Time policy works (CLICK HERE)

GST is included in fare – not an extra as charged by some other companies.
There is NO EXTRA CHARGE when you pay by credit card.
We DO NOT charge extra for dropping off friends along the way.
WAITING TIME: We have a 5 minute “grace period” before starting to charge “waiting time” of $2 per minute. We do not want to charge you waiting time but we do want to keep our commitment to stay on schedule for all the rides following yours. You have 5 minutes from the time our driver’s car arrives to get underway before “waiting time” is added. Your drivers will give you a very accurate ETA and they will arrive within 2 minutes of that ETA. Please be ready to leave when our drivers arrive. They are on a very tight schedule.
CANCELLATION FEES: Should you choose to cancel your ride once the drivers are on route, there is a $30.00 cancellation fee. If you cancel the trip after the drivers have arrived, there is a $60.00 cancellation fee.
DEPOSIT: The first time you use Captain’s Designated Drivers you may be asked for a $50.00 deposit on your credit card. The deposit goes towards your fare. We do not require deposits from our regular customers.
PAYMENT: We accept cash, credit and debit cards (tap under $100), Apple Pay and Android Pay.
Receipts: Credit and debit card receipts are emailed or texted to you at the time of payment. Cash receipts are issued by email the next day by scanning and emailing the original receipt (no duplicate receipts). Please give your driver your email address.
GRATUITIES: 100% of all tips go to our drivers.
