Here is GoCatch's advice emailed to Canberra drivers on Friday 29 December at 3.19 pm:

95% Commission and Higher Fares this NYE!

Hi Jack,

NYE is the biggest event of the year and you can earn 95% of EVERY Economy and Premium job on GoCatch this New Year's Eve weekend!

All fares will be higher because:

  • Super Peak rate cards will be in place with fares well over the taxi meter
  • Advance booking minimum fares have also been increased. Minimum Fares for Advance Bookings will now be:
    • Economy - $30
    • Taxi - $40
    • Maxi - $50
    • Premium - $60
This change means that Advance Bookings are now even more valuable and gives drivers extra incentive to pickup the smaller jobs.

Starting Saturday 30 December 2017, drivers who opt in will earn 95% of the fare on Economy and Premium jobs until the 2nd January 2018.

To Opt-In you MUST fill in this form HERE. Only drivers who opt-in using the form will be able to access this offer. Let's get to it!

This offer is subject to terms and conditions.

Jack Malarkey's additional comment:

I suspect they meant to say '5% commission' rather than '95% commission'!

I remain sceptical about whether there'll be GoCatch passengers except for when Uber has high surges when drivers can be expected to prefer Uber.



And GoCatch advised its passengers by email sent on Friday 29 December at 5.56 pm as follows:

Hi Jack Malarkey,

Millions of people will be celebrating New Years Eve, with many leaving their cars at home. Here are some tips to help you get where you need to go:
  • Book in advance to avoid the stress of getting home. You can now book 30 minutes in advance.
  • Adding a driver incentive gives you control of price and helps you get picked up faster.
  • Move to an easy location for your driver to pick you up.
  • Be patient. On NYE, you might need to wait a bit longer or post your job twice or more. Rest assured, we will be sending your job to all the nearby drivers.
When you travel with us, have the peace of mind that we will not price surge or 'Dynamically Price'. We will send your job out to our large fleet of rideshare and taxi drivers, and give you control of the price with our optional Driver Incentive. Peak pricing will be in place, but at most this will be 50% more than a taxi, not 8x.

We want to thank you for traveling with us and letting your friends and family know about us, too! We've continued to grow throughout 2017 and are excited to bring more value to you in 2018.

Enjoy your weekend and have a safe and Happy New Year!
