Can I order a taxi for a pick up from a train station?
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.
How long do I have to wait before my taxi arrives?
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.
I don’t have any address details. Can I still order a Staxi?
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.
Can I order a taxi outside of Amsterdam?
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.
Does Staxi have enough taxi's in its fleet? Is there always a taxi available or do I have to wait a long time?
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.
