How much does an Amsterdam taxi cost?
You want to know how much your Amsterdam taxi will cost, preferably before you’re presented with the bill. We get that, so we’ve created an easy-to-use online taxi fare calculator through which you can find the fare and book your ride in a jiffy.
Costs are the most significant reason to pre-book rather than hail a taxi in Amsterdam. When you take a random taxi, the meter starts running as soon as the driver starts driving. Did you take a taxi from an official rank or hail one from the street? Then be prepared to pay!
In addition to the starting fare, there’s a fee per kilometer and a fee per minute. 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!
How do you pay for a taxi in Amsterdam?
When you book your Amsterdam taxi through our online booking form, there are several ways that you can pay for your taxi:
- Pay online using iDeal, GiroPay, Bancontact, credit card or GPay;
- Prepay using PayPal;
- Pay the driver on-site with cash or card.
Either way, you’re assured of the set price and won’t be charged for your chosen payment method.
Amsterdam Taxi App
Download the Staxi App today and book your next ride in just a few taps. Whether you need a cab right away or want to book for later, our easy-to-use app has got you covered.
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 which taxi is coming to pick you up. And if anything changes, contact your driver directly from the app.
The shortest route is not always the fastest
Suppose you’ve hailed a cab or taken one from a taxi rank such as Amsterdam Central Station or Amsterdam Airport. In that case, you will pay a fee per kilometer and 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 set. That means you won’t pay extra for the slightly longer but faster route that your driver knows. That is especially useful if you have to catch an early flight or have an important meeting where you must be on time.
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.

How much does an Amsterdam taxi cost?
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.
Calculate the fare for your taxi ride easily with our taxi fare calculator or via the Staxi App!
How long in advance should I book the taxi?
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.
How do I pay for the taxi?
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!
