Hannover Taxi Fares

Taxis in Hannover are regulated by the state and are required to use a taximeter during the entire ride. There is a single tariff that applies throughout the day, every day of the week and the total fare is calculated based on the distance driven.

Base Fare – €3.90

Besides the standard tariff, keep in mind that unless you book your Hannover taxi in advance, the total fare for the same route might differ. Surcharges can include the waiting time or slow driving fee, which is €0.55 per minute, or the large taxi (Grossraumtaxi) fee, which is €6.

How to Get a Taxi in Hannover

Taxis are a reliable and popular transportation option in Hannover, especially during winter. Official taxis are light yellow and have a TAXI sign on the roof so they’re easy to spot. Unlike elsewhere, in Hannover, it’s not common to wave a taxi down the street. There are official taxi ranks all around the city in designated spots and near popular or busy locations, like the airport and train or bus stations. You can take the first taxi you’ll find at the rank, use one of the local taxi apps or order a taxi over the phone by calling one of the many operators. The most well-known providers you can phone are the following:

Hallo Taxi: +49 (511) 3811

Arnemann GmbH: +49 (511) 458 4545

Gruß Taxen GmbH: +49 (511) 664 964

Südkreis – Taxengesellschaft: +49 (511) 988 6262

Hannover Taxi Tips

  1. It's best to have your address written down in German, as not all taxi drivers speak English.
  2. Once you enter the taxi, check that the taximeter is set to the base fare of €3.90.
  3. At the end of the ride, it’s best to ask for a receipt to have as much information as possible in case you leave any personal items behind.
  4. Standard taxis that you take from the rank are unlikely to be equipped with a baby/child seat; make sure to bring your own if you need one.
  5. You don't need to tip your taxi driver but you can round up to the nearest euro if you were happy with the service.

Wheelchair Accessible Taxi Service in Hannover

Hannover, like most cities in Germany, is a wheelchair-accessible destination and you shouldn’t have any trouble moving around or using public transport.

Standard taxis that you’ll find at the ranks or on the street can store a foldable wheelchair but aren’t fully accessible. To ensure a smooth transfer to your destination, you can book a transfer service in advance by calling Mobilität Hannover at +49 (511) 7081 0213, or Lindener Fahrdienst at +49 (511) 924 5050.

Hannover Taxi Safety and Complaints

The taxi service in Hannover is safe and reliable; official, registered taxis are required by law to use a taximeter and the state regulates the rates so issues like overcharging aren’t that common.
