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.
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.

Determining 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!
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.
