Frequently asked questions
If you want to order a taxi online through our website, you will be asked to provide the following information: pick up address, address of your destination, number of passengers, time and date and a telephone number on which we can reach one of the passengers. Read more on the page ‘Book a taxi‘.
If you order a taxi with the Staxi App, your current location is determined using GPS. Of course, you can also type in an address if you wish. Other necessary information is: address of your destination, time and date and the number of passengers. If this is your first time booking a Staxi with the app, we will ask you to provide your bank or credit card details once only. Read more on the page ‘Book a taxi with the Staxi App‘.
If you prefer to order your Staxi by telephone, please provide us with the following: your telephone number, pick up address, address of your destination, number of passengers and of course the date and time on which you need a taxi. Visit ‘Book a taxi‘ for more information.
If you made your reservation through our website or App, you’ll get a confirmation e-mail. If you made your reservation by telephone, the dispatcher will confirm your booking.
Yes, if you made your order through our website or App, you will automatically receive an e-mail confirmation.
Yes, that’s possible. If you order through our website, please select the option ‘train station’ instead of the default option ‘address’. With bookings by the App, when you start typing the name of the train station, it will appear on a selection list with a train icon so you can recognize it easily.
If you made your reservation through our App, you will get live feedback about your taxi’s location. How long it takes before the taxi arrives, depends on the location of the driver when you made your order. If you pre-booked a taxi, your driver will arrive at the pick up location on the requested time. Should you need a taxi right now, the average waiting time is no longer than 10 minutes. Special circumstances such as bad weather or rush hour can prolong the waiting time slightly.
Yes, that’s possible. The App will localize your position if you have your GPS turned on. On the website, you can type in names of hotels and restaurants and the system will automatically fill in the correct address. You still need to provide us with the destination address.
At this moment, we operate only in the Amsterdam region. If you need a taxi elsewhere, please contact us by telephone to discuss the possibilities.
Staxi has a pool of 600 drivers. Most of them are working in the city center of Amsterdam or around Schiphol Airport. In those spots often you don’t have to wait longer than 7 minutes before your taxi arrives. When you need a taxi outside the city center, most of the time it will take about 15 minutes to pick you up. On busy days like King’s Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day or under extreme weather conditions the time of arrival can be somewhat longer. Suggestion: Download our App and you will see the location and estimated time of arrival of your taxi.
Staxi is a taxi company, licensed by the municipality of Amsterdam. We are also endorsed by Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. In addition, our taxi company has a special certificate that identifies us as a high quality company.
Yes, you can. If you wish to do so, it is wise to disclose your flight number. You can do this by telephone, or if you order online or by the Staxi App, use the comment field. We will keep track of your flight and contact you to arrange a pick up location. For more information, please read the page ‘Taxi from Schiphol Airport to Amsterdam‘ and ‘Taxi from Amsterdam Airport: how to find yours?‘.
Our default pick up address at Amsterdam Airport is outside of the departure halls (upstairs). When you exit the departure halls, the door will have a letter above it. Inform the driver of this letter and he will arrive on average within 5 to 10 minutes. Read more on the page ‘Taxi from Schiphol Airport to Amsterdam‘ and ‘Taxi from Amsterdam Airport: how to find yours?‘.
For both sedans and taxi vans we calculate the same rate, when you travel with up to 4 passengers. If your group is larger than 4 persons, different rates apply. Read about it on the page ‘Taxi costs‘.
The fare for vans is applied when you’re traveling in groups of 5 to 8 persons. More information about the costs of a taxi can be found on the page ‘Taxi costs‘.
A Staxi you wave down at the street or at a taxi rank, will always drive on the meter. The starting rate is €2,95, the fee per kilometer is €2,17 and the rate per minute is €0,36. For transport of a group in the range of 5 to 8 persons, the starting rate is €6,00, the fee per kilometer is €2,73 and the rate per minute is €0,41.
Should you find yourself stuck in a traffic jam or before a road block, the price can go up rather quickly. That’s why we advise to pre-book a taxi through this website or our App, and you’ll get a fixed price in advance!
Read more about the taxi rates on the page ‘Taxi costs‘.
