ComfortDelGro CabRewards Programme

Come 03 March 2014, we are launching CabRewards Programme for Loyalty customers.  Under our CabRewards Programme, passengers who go cashless will be given cabpoints which can be redeemed for gifts such as our taxi vouchers. For passengers who pay by cash, they can participate in the CabRewards lucky draw.  

To be our CabRewards member, passengers have to register their EZ link cards, which serves as a membership card for our programme.  On the taxi, passenger just need to tap their EZ link card on our payment terminal at the end of their journey to gain cabpoints and/or lucky draw chances.
(this is just like your Passion, Watson , NTUC cards )  tap at the counter before payment )  

Passengers can register their EZlink cards at the CabRewards Portal : http://cabrewards.cdgtaxi.com.sg to get 500 bonus cabpoints instantly.  Each CabRewards account can have up to two (2) EZ link cards.

Every $1 of cashless payments get 1 cabpoint.  For a start, EZ link paying customers will get double points.

In addition, we also introduce e-Receipt to our commuters. It offers the convenience of paperless receipt, making it simple for our commuters to keep track of their trips. It also saves time because after every trip, commuters will get a receipt emailed to them within minutes after they alighted. Commuters can print and store the receipt at their convenience for easy record keeping and reimbursement of transport claims.

Please do forward to your family and friends. Do get them to register , you never know when you are really lucky.
