They've obviously done a lot of number crunching to come up with that one, no doubt in their favour, but in the face of BOLT competition.
At €69 they've already got 12.5% of €559 of fares, or 15% of €460 of fares whether you do them or not, and 12.5% of your remaining ac fares, and then appealing to drivers who might prefer there not to be a record of cash fares. The % of ac fares must now be very high, and no doubt will be "encouraged" more in the future by FN.

As is every cab company. They will say that they add value to the experience of the passenger, and the driver.

I'd imagine most C2K drivers would recognise and avoid the VIP work... unless they want something to propel them back into the cash rich circuits. I guess the thinking is that they might otherwise browse the likes of Free Now when looking for something coming back so they can save 2.5% by staying in-house?

Not having a record of cash jobs will obviously appeal to those wishing to evade income tax.

Didn't you say City manage to hide driver's earnings from Revenue, Whereas Free now is 100% transparent?

Revenue can of course just raise a reasonable estimate and leave it up to you to fight it.
