Where to get a taxi at Amsterdam Airport?

Official taxis lined up in the ranks are part of registered taxi companies, with some offering set rates to specific destinations. Just keep in mind that waiting times may be significantly longer if you’re travelling during peak season.

To avoid the queues and hop straight into a private vehicle, we recommend pre-booking your airport taxi in Amsterdam with a trusted transfer provider. That way, you can enjoy a speedy, door-to-door experience and secure a guaranteed fixed fare.

Useful tips for getting a taxi from Amsterdam Airport

  1. Amsterdam Airport taxis usually calculate fares using a taximeter, based on the distance travelled and time of day. However, some Amsterdam taxi companies offer fixed prices for specific routes.
  2. Always double-check the driver is offering a fixed fare before setting off. And if you secure a ride with a fixed fare, remember that the taximeter should still be turned on. If the taximeter displays a lower amount once you’ve reached your final destination, you will pay the lower price.
  3. Official rates are usually displayed inside the vehicle.
  4. If you’re taking a metered ride, make sure the taximeter is set to the base fare of €3.60 before beginning your journey.
  5. Never accept rides from unregistered drivers offering rides at the airport.
  6. Schiphol Travel Taxi at Amsterdam Airport is a ride-sharing service for up to 8 passengers. Just keep in mind that these transfers take longer as you’ll need to make a few stops along the way.
  7. Tipping isn’t expected but you can round up the fare if the service was great.
  8. Your airport taxi in Amsterdam may accept card payments.However, we recommend checking with your driver before getting in. You should also have some cash handy in the local currency (€).
  9. Some taxi drivers may speak English, but this is never guaranteed. We recommend writing down the address of your hotel or accommodation to avoid any issues.
  10. If you think you have been scammed or overcharged, keep your receipt and write down the taxi driver’s name, ID number and the number of your taxi. You can then contact the taxi company or the local police to file a complaint.
  11. For a competitive fixed fare, no waiting times, and an English-speaking driver, private transfers are the best choice.
