When it comes to taxi fares, there is an essential point that we must first raise. That’s the difference between a pre-booked taxi and a cab you flag down. You always pay a metered fare when you take a taxi at a stand or on the street.
How much does a taxi cost without a reservation?
Imagine you just hopped on a taxi. You name your destination, and the driver turns on the taximeter. It starts with a price of € 3.36 (or even € 6.83 if you take a taxi van), while you haven’t driven a kilometer yet! We’ll get to that.
For every kilometer travelled, the meter charges an amount of € 2.47 (or € 3.11 in a taxi van). And then there is an additional cost of € 0.41 (or € 0.46) per minute. All the while, the only thing you see is the fare indicated by the taximeter. Distressing how quickly it increases!
Nevertheless, using the taximeter is required by law for drivers that take passengers from the taxi rank or streets. In contrast: with pre-booked rides, a metered price is not necessary. And that is why we can only give you a fixed price if you book your taxi through us.
Calculate a taxi fare
So you want to know how much your taxi will cost. You can easily calculate the taxi fare with our online fare finder or the Staxi App.

Next, you see what your taxi ride will cost. It’s that simple!
Staxi’s Flex Fare
Just like with a plane ticket or hotel stay, the price of a taxi ride can also fluctuate. It’s a question of supply and demand: your taxi is cheaper at quiet times.
Our peak and off-peak hours are dynamic. For example, a ride at 1:00 p.m. can be cheaper than during the morning rush hour. What is always guaranteed when you book a taxi from us is that the price for which you book will be the actual price you pay. The rate is all-in, and there are never any extra charges.
Get a taxi for a fixed price
Now that you’ve calculated the taxi costs, you are only one step away from ordering your taxi. The last thing to do is to make the payment. All set? Then you’re assured of your taxi ánd the fixed price. You can pay the customary way through the online taxi fare calculator or our taxi app: with iDeal, Bancontact, GiroPay, PayPal or your credit card. Piece of cake!
Would you rather speak to someone before you reserve your taxi? That is also possible. Call us or send us a message via WhatsApp. Our operators will assist you and let you know the set price. When you book your ride with Staxi, you always have 100% certainty about the costs!
By the way, you can also book a taxi with an extra stop with us. Very cost-effective and eco-friendly! Our taxi calculator computes the costs for the ride from A to Z. You’ll only pay for the distance travelled. We do not charge any surcharges for making one (or more) stopovers.

Frequently asked questions
You will get a fixed price when you pre-book a taxi with us. The exact fare 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 taxi companies offer a metered fare based on 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 cost difference between a minibus taxi and a 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.
That depends on the location where you want to be picked up. Usually, there is a minimum booking time of 60 minutes. In some areas, it is longer and in others shorter.
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 pre-pay via your trusted payment environment, such as iDeal, Sofort or PayPal. Of course, you can also pay securely online with your credit card. Without extra costs!
