How to get a taxi in Brno

There are only a few hundred taxis available in the small town of Brno, however, there are many ways you can find and book one, ensuring that cab service is never too far away. The easiest way to grab a taxi is to simply hail one from the street whenever you spot a yellow ‘TAXI’ sign on the roof of a vehicle. Alternatively, you can walk directly to one of the designated taxi ranks located throughout the city, near transport hubs, shopping malls, tourist hot spots, and hotels.

If you prefer to plan ahead, you can use a ride-hailing service; Bolt Taxi in Brno and Uber Taxi in Brno are the most common, but keep in mind that prices for these services often fluctuate significantly. If you’re looking to travel at night, during unfavourable weather, or over longer distances, you may want to book a private transfer ahead of time, phone or SMS a company directly. Note that not all taxi companies are allowed to pick up passengers from certain hotels so it is best to check with the concierge first. Some of the most well-known companies you can reach by phone are:

City Taxi Brno: +420 (542) 321 321 or via SMS to +420 (777) 014 004

Lido Taxi: +420 (542) 214 221

Impuls Taxi: +420 (724) 006 666

Brno taxi tips

  1. Check that the taximeter has been turned on and reset before beginning your trip.
  2. Have your route handy on Google Maps or Waze to cross-check that your driver is taking the most direct route.
  3. Make sure you request a receipt at the end of your journey in case you leave anything behind or have any issues.
  4. Tipping isn't customary in Czech Republic but if you'd like to show your appreciation for good service, 5-10% of the total fare price is a good amount.

Wheelchair-accessible taxis in Brno

Buildings in Brno are required to be as wheelchair-accessible as possible, although given that it is a medieval city, there are some limitations. To get around the city, you can arrange a modified taxi through City Taxi Brno which allows fastening of the wheelchair using anchors so that the passenger isn’t required to move from their chair. This service needs to be arranged in advance and you can contact them by phone at +420 (542) 321 321.

Safety and complaints for Brno taxis

Although taxis in Brno are generally regarded as reliable and safe, the most common taxi issue that tourists encounter is the taximeter not being reset or a longer than necessary route being taken in an attempt to drive up the price. 

If you feel that your driver has tried to overcharge you or if they’ve behaved inappropriately, it is best to contact the taxi company directly, or you can reach out to the Czech Republic Taxi Guild to make a formal complaint. 

To make a complaint, be sure to request and keep your receipt and write down the driver’s registration and licence number.
