Taxis in Geneva

Geneva, despite being known as a major finance and diplomacy hub, has plenty to offer its visitors. Travellers can relax and enjoy the luxury offered in this cosmopolitan city or find adventure in the Alps or Lac Léman (Lake Geneva). Getting around the centre of Geneva is easy by foot or using the tram, but if you have a greater distance to travel, or wobbly legs from having too much fun on the ski slopes, taxis are readily available to get you to where you need to go quickly and comfortably.

Many different companies offer Geneva cab services, and you can effortlessly find a taxi at one of the 60 taxi ranks in the city. You can also hail a taxi from the street, call to request a ride or pre-book your transfer online. Taxi prices are determined by a taximeter unless you pre-book your ride for a set fare.

  2. When taking your taxi from the taxi rank, make sure the meter is on and is reset at the start of your ride.

Geneva Taxi Safety and Complaints

When taking a taxi, make sure the meter is reset so you won’t be overcharged and exercise the normal amount of caution you would in any cab. If an issue does arise, be sure to record the taxi number and keep your receipt. That way, if you wish, you can file a complaint directly with the cab company you used. You can find the relevant phone number on your receipt, posted on the taxi, or via the company’s website.
