What are the costs for my taxi ride? - Staxi, the fixed price taxi

What are the costs for my taxi ride?

Can you relate? You take a taxi, set your destination, the meter starts running and when you’ve reached your final destination, the costs are much higher than you anticipated.

Staxi fixed rate

When you pre-book at Staxi, there will be no surprises about the prices. You’ll get a fixed price in advance with each pre-booking, meaning:

✓  No starting rate
✓  No rate per kilometer
✓  No waiting rate
✓  No hidden costs afterwards


What’s more, we do not charge extra for card payments or additional passengers. There will be no night time surcharge and no luggage surcharge. Just a clear, flat rate.

That is why we’ve taken on the motto fixed price, no surprise! The fare is fixed, even if the driver has to make a detour caused by a road block for example. For no added costs, we will get you to your destination as quickly as possible.

Taxi costs without reservation

If you hail a taxi on the streets or when you get in at a taxi rank, the taxi driver will always calculate a metered fare. How these prices are compiled, is stated elsewhere on this page.

When the fare is metered, travelling one kilometer will set you back no less than €2,35. Then there’s the starting rate and the tariff per minute that all will be added to the total price.

As you can see, the costs can get sky-high pretty quickly. For instance, when there’s a road block and the driver has to make a detour. Or maybe your ride takes a lot longer than expected. That’s not unthinkable: when driving on the meter, the taxi driver is obliged to take the shortest (but not per se the fastest) route possible.

Save yourself the trouble ánd the costs and book your taxi in Amsterdam with the fare calculator on this website or download our taxi booking app.

Staxi from A to B fixed priceDetermining the fixed taxi fare

We calculate the taxi costs using algorithms. Among other things, the length of the route and the type of vehicle that you choose are factors that help determine the taxi fare. Additionally, supply and demand also play a role in calculating the total costs.

As a rule, the fare you get when you book at Staxi is lower than the metered fare. When conditions are exceptional, however, it may occur that the rates are somewhat higher than you’re used to. Examples are days on which it snows a lot, when there’s a power blackout or when public transport cannot continue for some reason. The demand for taxis gets really high really quickly while the availability of vacant taxis is very low.

Naturally, that goes the other way as well. If there’s high availability and low demand, the rates go down.

In any case: the taxi fare is always fixed in advance. Fixed price, no surprise!

Payment methods

Do you want to pay cash or card? It’s all possible. You can also pay in advance. Navigate to ‘Payment methods‘ to read all about the different ways to pay for your ride.

Cheap taxi in Amsterdam

When you’re with a group, taking a taxi in Amsterdam is often cheaper than travelling by public transport. Are you visiting Amsterdam by car? In that case you will probably have a lot of parking costs too. Just one hour of parking in the city center will set you back no less than €7,50.

Thumbs up StaxiBook a Staxi and you won’t have any parking costs, you don’t have the challenge of finding a parking space and trying to find your car back when you return. Instead, you will be transported from door-to-door comfortably.

With the all-in price you get at Staxi, you know exactly what you’ll pay in advance and most of the times you will pay less than when you take a taxi on the street.
