Fixed price, no surprise

Staxi gives you a fixed price for each taxi booking. Hence our slogan fixed price, no surprise.

Although you would think otherwise, fixed fares for taxi rides are pretty unique in Amsterdam. We make a difference. With each booking you’ll know exactly what the ride will cost you.

Of course, it’s only possible for us to give you a fixed price if we know where you’re going. If you’re not sure at which address you are but you do know the name of your hotel or restaurant, it’s best to use our App. It automatically pinpoints your location, or you can just type the name of the establishment and the App will do the rest.

Besides our taxi booking App, you can also make your reservation online, through this website. Or, just give us a call. Either way; to get a fixed price, it’s necessary to pre-book your taxi.

Pre-book and pre-pay

If you make a reservation using our App or website, you can easily and safely pay online. Whether you want to use a debit card, credit card or PayPal, it’s all possible. No more looking around for small change when you’re in a hurry. Just get in and let the driver transfer you to your destination. If the quality of your taxi ride was above expectation, surely you can tip your driver in cash!

Available 24/7

Maybe you need a taxi right away. Or maybe you want to make a booking for your early morning transfer to the airport.  The possibilities are endless. Even if you want to make a reservation for two years from now. We operate 24/7 and don’t charge extra for late night taxi rides.

The fastest route for a fixed price
Icon from A to B fixed price

By law, taxi drivers in the Netherlands are obliged to take the shortest route possible. That’s because taxis that you get into on a taxi rank or in the street will always use their taxi meter to calculate the fare. This metered fare is based on the exact length of the route taken.

When you book a taxi with us, the fare is fixed no matter what. The shortest route in downtown Amsterdam is most probably not the fastest one (on the contrary). So, not only do you get a fixed price in advance, but also you will probably arrive at your destination a lot quicker!

Fare calculation

Under normal circumstances the taxi fee at Staxi is lower than the metered fare. We calculate the fare using algorithms that are influenced by a number of aspects. Clearly the length in kilometers of your ride is important, but the supply and demand are of influence as well.

At Staxi we don’t employ our own drivers. All of our drivers are self-employed, so they decide for themselves how often and how long they work. As a result, it’s possible that the demand is higher than our supply of drivers at a specific moment. In situations like this, we simply don’t have enough drivers available to handle our bookings on time.

On the contrary, if there’s little demand and a lot of available drivers, the fee may turn up lower than normal. In any case; the price that you got when making the booking is fixed. You’ll always know in advance what the deal is. The certainty of a fixed price!
