A Brief History of Leiden
Leiden boasts a vibrant history, with evidence of human habitation dating back to 2000 BC. Known initially as Leithon, the city received its first documented mention in 860 AD.
The granting of city rights to Leiden is encapsulated in the charter issued by Count Floris V in 1266, which is considered the city’s birth certificate. Count Floris affirmed existing rights from his predecessors and introduced additional privileges. We believe that the initial city rights were conferred before 1200.
A significant moment in Leiden’s history unfolded on October 3, 1574, when the city liberated itself from Spanish occupation during the Eighty Years’ War. The annual celebration of this liberation includes traditional delights like hutspot, herring, white bread, and festive gatherings.
Following the Relief of Leiden, William I of Orange established the first Dutch university in the city. Inaugurated on February 8, 1575, at the Pieters church, the university was a gesture of appreciation for Leiden’s valiant defence against the Spaniards.
During the 16th and 17th centuries, Leiden emerged as a science and art hub. Renowned figures like Rembrandt, philosopher Baruch Spinoza, and even Albert Einstein, an extraordinary professor at Leiden University from 1920 to 1946, contributed to the city’s intellectual legacy.
Frequently asked questions
You will get a fixed price when you pre-book a taxi with us. The exact fare depends on several things:
The distance of the ride
Of course, you will pay less for a shorter ride. However, our rate per kilometre decreases as the total distance increases. That is unique because most taxi companies offer a metered fare based on a fixed amount for each kilometre. As a result, you are off cheaper with Staxi than with other taxi companies.
The type of vehicle
A ride in a regular taxi is cheaper than a ride in a taxi van. When you pre-book your taxi with us, the cost difference between a minibus taxi and a sedan is smaller than when you flag down a cab on the street or get in at a taxi rank. In that case, the driver will charge the meter rate, which is more expensive than our fixed rates.
Supply and demand
Just like a plane ticket or a night in a hotel, the fare for the same trip can fluctuate depending on supply and demand. For example: in extreme weather conditions, such as heavy snow, the need for taxi transport increases rapidly, which makes the price rise. The same journey can also be a lot cheaper, for instance, travelling at a quiet time.
As such, Staxi works with peak and off-peak hours. Our software automatically adjusts the fares based on supply and demand. In quiet moments, you will travel even cheaper with Staxi.
That depends on the location where you want to be picked up. Usually, there is a minimum booking time of 60 minutes. In some areas, it is longer and in others shorter.
Tip: When you book a taxi with the Staxi App, you can see precisely where the driver is and what time he or she will arrive.
