I said it as a wind-up but charging them for parking isn't much different than charging them for yer car washes, tyres, petrol etc...Whatever app is allowing drivers to charge for car parking charges is operating illegally IMo..

The regulatory authority is the NTA (taxi regulation act 2013).
They set the maximum fare and allowable extras.They allow extras for more passengers,a booking fee,and tolls as incurred during the ride.
That's it.Why you think expenses incurred before the customer gets in your taxi should be passed on to them is beyond me.
It’s only an expense after they get into the car. It’s free to enter the car park at Zone 18 but it costs you to get out of it.
Not one mention of car park fees anywhere being allowed or not allowed

The next time you pick up a fare add 1.50 at the end of the journey and see what happens.
Tell them it’s for parking.
I do add it on.
I just don’t get why MyTaxi won’t allow to charge it when other apps automatically add it on

How long are you driving taxis ?

So you should know what extras you can put on the meter/or charge
You can’t charge for parking.

Where does it say that we can’t charge? There is nothing in the Statute Instrument about parking charges.

Van for somebody only brand new you seem to be expert so you pull into the carpark and accept a job but your passenger goes for a shit and a mc donalds and then meets his best mate in arrivals you accepted the job but waited twenty  minutes as a result of that you exceed the waiting time and the fee goes up do you cover the extra parking and waiting time .Do you turn on the meter after five minutes waiting and do you pass on the extra parking charge or are you a wueless piece of shit there to be abused by the passenger at your expence .Just asking for a friend .Also your expertise can tell us what happens if your booking does not turn up do you need to cancel and reapply to join the que ..

A very likely scenario!
As has already been established,you can put on your meter as soon as you arrive for a booking,so if this mythical annoying punter kept you waiting half an hour,you'd be €15 odd up before you left the airport.

Ewes are nucking futs.
Who wants to be picked up at zone 18 when there's a taxi stand provided? mytaxi's clients.
Who wants you to pick their clients up at zone 18? mytaxi
Who should pay? You? Ask my testicles.

The ambassadors are getting a raw deal no matter how you look at it. How much do you think mytaxi pays for advertisements on the back of buses? Do you think Radio Nova carry the immigrants infomercials for 4c/litre off their petrol? If I was running the depot I'd charge non-ambassadors 30% commission and extend the "hospitality" charge to all jobs.
