The number one reason to pre-book rather than hail a taxi in Amsterdam is the costs. If you hail a taxi or take one from the many official taxi ranks in the city, the driver will turn his meter on the moment he starts driving.
Apart from the starting fare, there’s a fare per kilometer and a fare per minute as well. The rate per kilometer is close to €2,50. Say there’s a road block and the driver has no choice but to go around it. The price can get higher than you’d like very quickly.
However, if you book a taxi at Staxi, you’ll know the fare for your taxi ride even before making your booking. That’s because we give a fixed fare for every booking. Fixed price, no surprise! If you want to know what your taxi will cost, you can easily calculate it with our online taxi fare calculator.
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.
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

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 almost leaving so your rushing 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.
We think good quality is the most important thing. As our customer, you deserve the best service. We try to safeguard our level of quality as well as we can. That’s why we’ve got our own training center at Staxi Academy to train our drivers ourselves.
As a customer, you can put your two cents in too: when you’ve arrived at your destination, you can rate your driver. We will make sure your rating ends up where it should. If your ride didn’t go as expected and you’ve pointed this out in your review, we will contact the driver and come up with a plan to improve. In this manner we do our best to keep our high quality of service!Book a taxi
