Ankara Taxi Prices

Taxis in Ankara do not offer fixed fees, but instead, use a taximeter to calculate each ride’s fare, based on variables such as distance and duration. It should be noted that, although safe to use,  taxis in the area are poorly regulated, so an Ankara taxi price can differ depending on the operator. For your peace of mind, it is recommended to book in advance with a reputable taxi provider instead of hailing a cab on the street.

When using a local Ankara taxi, we recommend that you ask your hotel concierge or search online so that you have an average fare in mind before starting your ride. Also, it’s a good idea to agree upon an estimated fare with the driver, specify what route you want to take, and keep track of the taximeter during the ride.

Day & night rates

Initial fare: €0.27 (TRY 5.00)
Price per km: €0.20 (TRY 3.70)

Local taxi rates are subject to change and there could be additional charges such as bridge tolls.

How to get a taxi in Ankara

Finding a taxi in Ankara shouldn’t be difficult as there are plenty of cabs in the city. However, as they are not well-regulated, travellers are advised to book with an official taxi company instead of hailing one of the local yellow ones on the street. There are a number of private cab companies in Ankara that you can book in advance by calling, such as the ones listed below, but keep in mind that there may be a booking surcharge for the service. You can also use Bitaksi, a Turkish taxi app, which is considered safe and reliable or if you know when and where you’ll be needing a ride, pre-book your trip with Welcome!

Regrettably, at this time, there are no specialised fully-accessible taxis in Ankara that offer ramps or hydraulic lifts. It would be advisable to book in advance and check with your selected provider if they can offer a larger vehicle for a more comfortable ride.

Ankara taxi safety and complaints

Taking a taxi in Ankara is generally considered safe, but local taxis are not well-regulated. For this reason, visitors are advised against hailing taxis on the street, as it is safer and more reliable to secure a ride, via phone or online, with a trusted taxi company. If you face any issues and want to file a formal complaint about a taxi company or driver, you can try calling the citizens’ helpline at +90 (212) 153 00 00, or walk into one of the police stations in Ankara. Make sure you get the license plates of the taxi — found on the vehicle’s front, back, and sides, so that you can file your complaint with enough information.
