How much does an Amsterdam taxi cost?
If you want to know how much your Amsterdam taxi will cost, you can easily calculate it with our online taxi fare calculator. The number one reason to pre-book rather than hail a taxi in Amsterdam is the costs. The meter starts running as soon as the driver starts driving, so if you take one from an official rank or hail one from the street, be prepared to pay extra.
In addition to the starting fare, there’s a fee per kilometer and a fee per minute as well. The rate per kilometer is close to € 2.50. Say there’s a roadblock and the driver has no choice but to go around it. The price can quickly exceed what you’d like it to be.
What if we told you there was an easy way to know how much your Amsterdam taxi ride would cost before booking? Well, there is! All you have to do is book your ride with Staxi. We give a fixed fare for every booking. Fixed price, no surprise!

We know that sometimes life throws us curveballs and plans change. With Staxi, you don’t have to worry about getting stranded somewhere. With our easy app, you can order a taxi anytime day or night, rain or shine. Follow the driver in real-time on the map and see their license plate number so you know exactly who is picking you up.

The shortest route is not always the fastest
If you’ve hailed a cab or took one from a taxi rank such as Amsterdam Central Station or Amsterdam Airport, you will pay a fee per kilometer and per minute. By law, the driver is obliged to take the shortest route possible. As you can imagine, the shortest route is not necessarily the fastest one, especially not in a city like Amsterdam.
When you pre-book a Staxi, the fare is fixed. That means you won’t be charged extra for the slightly longer but faster route that your driver knows. This is especially useful if you have to catch an early flight or have an important meeting where you need to be punctual.
Example: from Amsterdam Central Station to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport
The shortest route: 16,8 km – 32 minutes
The fastest route: 20,3 km – 23 minutes
Source: ANWB Routeplanner
As you can see, the difference is quite big! The fastest route, in this case, is almost 10 minutes faster than the shortest one. Another good reason to not just get in a random taxi but book one in advance.
Pre-book and pre-pay
The driver took you from A to B safely. It took a little longer than planned because you ran into a roadblock. Your train is about to leave so you hurry to find your wallet…
Or you pre-book a taxi with Staxi and pay in advance. You’ll get an invoice via e-mail so you don’t have to wait for the receipt to be printed either.

Frequently asked questions
When you book a taxi with us, you will get a fixed price in advance. The exact cost 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 drivers use their taximeter, which charges 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 difference in costs between a minivan and 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.
Staxi has no minimum or maximum reservation time. You can order a taxi at any time.
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.
At Staxi you can pay for your taxi in any way you like. Because we work with fixed prices, it is possible to pay in advance via your trusted payment environment such as iDeal, Sofort or PayPal.
Would you rather pay on-site with the driver? That’s possible too! Our drivers accept cash as well as debit and credit card payments. Without any extra costs, of course!
