Staxi is the first Authorised Taxi Organisation (TTO) in the Netherlands. Taxi drivers have to register with this type of organisation before they are allowed to offer services in Amsterdam’s taxi-hailing market.
The best taxi service in Amsterdam
Because Staxi works with professional and certified drivers, you are sure of a carefree ride. You can book your taxi on the website, in the app or over the phone. The best thing is: you’ll always get a fixed price when you book a Staxi!
As a consequence, you’ll never be faced with unforeseen costs again. Even if the taxi driver has to take a detour, you will pay the price you agreed upon in the first place. We make sure that you always arrive at your destination on time, safely and with a smile on your face.
Because Staxi works with over 600 drivers, you can book a taxi in the center of Amsterdam at any time of the day. Our service is available 24/7. There are drivers at work all the time, so you’re guaranteed an excellent and affordable ride.
What makes Staxi unique is that we offer a fixed price for every kind of ride. That also applies to our wheelchair taxis, for example. Many other taxi services in Amsterdam only provide flat rates when it comes to trips to and from Schiphol Airport.
Every new driver attends training at the Staxi Academy. They’re well prepared for their work at the most customer-friendly taxi company in the city. Also, our drivers have TX certification. That means they regularly follow first-aid courses and undergo a yearly inspection.

When you book a taxi with us, you will get a fixed price in advance. The exact cost depends on several things.
The distance of the ride
Of course, you will pay less for a shorter ride. However, our rate per kilometre decreases as the total distance increases. That is unique because most drivers use their taximeter, which charges a fixed amount for each kilometre. As a result, you are off cheaper with Staxi than with other taxi companies.
The type of vehicle
A ride in a regular taxi is cheaper than a ride in a taxi van. When you pre-book your taxi with us, the difference in costs between a minivan and sedan is smaller than when you flag down a cab on the street or get in at a taxi rank. In that case, the driver will charge the meter rate, which is more expensive than our fixed rates.
Supply and demand
Just like a plane ticket or a night in a hotel, the fare for the same trip can fluctuate, depending on supply and demand. For example: in extreme weather conditions, such as heavy snow, the need for taxi transport increases rapidly, which makes the price rise. The same journey can also be a lot cheaper, for instance, travelling at a quiet time.
As such, Staxi works with peak and off-peak hours. Our software automatically adjusts the fares based on supply and demand. In quiet moments, you will travel even cheaper with Staxi.

Tip: When you book a taxi with the Staxi App, you can see precisely where the driver is and what time he or she will arrive.
At Staxi you can pay for your taxi in any way you like. Because we work with fixed prices, it is possible to pay in advance via your trusted payment environment such as iDeal, Sofort or PayPal.
Would you rather pay on-site with the driver? That’s possible too! Our drivers accept cash as well as debit and credit card payments. Without any extra costs, of course!
