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

What are the costs for my taxi ride?

Sounds familiar? You get on a taxi, you set your destination, the meter is running and when you’ve reached your drop off location, the costs are much higher than you expected before.

Fixed price tag

When you travel with Staxi, there will be no surprises. You’ll get a fixed price in advance with each booking:

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


Fixed price, no surprise! The fare is fixed, even if the driver has to make a detour (caused by a road block or a traffic jam for example) to drive 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 fares are compiled, is stated on this page.

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; 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 (and the costs!) and book your taxi in Amsterdam simply with the booking module on this website or download the Staxi App.

Determining the taxi fare

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

Normally, the fare you get when you book with 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

To take a taxi in Amsterdam is often cheaper than travelling by public transport when you’re with a group. Visiting Amsterdam by car? In that case you will probably have a lot of parking costs too. Book 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.
