Pre-book your Staxi; get a fixed price
When you make a reservation with us, you’ll know within a minute what the taxi ride will cost you. It’s not necessary to book days or weeks in advance. Even when you’ve just arrived at the airport, you can make a reservation by
- booking through this site
- downloading the Staxi App
- sending a WhatsApp message
- giving us a call
Either way, you’ll know the tariff before you board the taxi. After you’ve finalised the booking, you’ll receive a confirmation by e-mail. It might end up in your spam box, so please check that as well!
Pickup from Schiphol Airport
“Where do I find my pre-booked taxi at the airport?” A valid question. We have heaps of experience in picking up passengers at Schiphol Airport, which we’ll happily share.
The dispatcher will contact you through WhatsApp as soon as your flight has landed. You can connect to the ‘Airport_Free_Wifi’ if you don’t have an internet connection. Then, please send us a message back once you gathered all your luggage.
We’ll collect you at the Staxi Pickup Point, which is at the departure level upstairs. Make your way to Departure Hall 3, exit door D. Your taxicab will be waiting on the outer lane.
Board the right taxi
It’s vital that you board the taxi that the dispatcher has appointed to you. Only this driver will know your destination and the agreed fare.
Many affiliated drivers offer their taxi services on the official taxi rank at the airport. Without a doubt, they are qualified taxi drivers. The only thing is, the drivers at the taxi stand are active on the taxi-hailing market, as opposed to the pre-booked taxi market.
The difference is that drivers from the taxi rank will always calculate a metered fare. The driver that we’ve selected to pick you up will transport you for the fixed price you’ve settled for.
As such, your designated driver will be able to show that he received the details of your journey on his taxi board computer or dispatch app. If you are unsure whether you’re getting into the right taxi, you can always ask the driver to show the ride details.
Of course, you can always contact the dispatch center if you have questions. Through WhatsApp, we’re available 24 hours a day. Make sure you book your taxi from Leiden to Schiphol at Staxi as well!
A short history of Leiden
Leiden has a vibrant history. The first signs of habitation date from 2000 B.C. The oldest known mention of the city, which was then called Leithon, dates from 860 A.D.
The charter with the Leiden city rights, issued by Count Floris V in 1266 is regarded as the birth certificate of the city of Leiden. Count Floris confirmed the rights that his predecessors had already given and added some to it. The first city rights probably date from before 1200.
On the 3rd of October 1574, Leiden freed itself from the Spanish occupation during The Eighty Years’ War. Inhabitants still celebrate the relief of Leiden with hutspot, herring, white bread and many big celebrations.
Shortly after the Relief of Leiden, William I of Orange founded the first Dutch university in Leiden. The university was consecrated on February 8th 1575 in the Pieterskerk. Prince William I of Orange paid for the educational institution as a reward for the heroic defence of Leiden against the Spanish.
In the 16th and 17th century, Leiden was an epicenter, both scientifically as artistically. Rembrandt was born here, famous philosophers such as Baruch Spinoza attended Leiden, and Albert Einstein was an endowed professor at Leiden University from 1920 to 1946.

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.
Calculate the fare for your taxi ride easily with our taxi fare calculator or via the Staxi App!
Staxi has no minimum or maximum reservation time. You can order a taxi at any time.
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!
