Malmö taxi service

Malmö is the third largest city in Sweden and the capital of the southernmost province, Skåne. It is situated on the southwest coast of the country, on the Øresund Strait and was an important trading centre in medieval times. 

Today, Malmö is a modern city with a vibrant culture, food scene and nightlife. Some of the top local attractions are the impressive Øresund Bridge that connects the city to Denmark, the 190-meter-tall “Turning Torso” building, and Lilla Torg, a city square that dates back to the 1500s. The historic Malmö Castle is also worth visiting as it is home to many of the city’s popular museums. Malmö also offers opportunities for outdoor recreation and leisure which you can enjoy by visiting Ribersborg Beach, city parks such as Kungsparken and Slottsträdgården, as well as Folkets Park, a folk and amusement park from the late 1800s.

No matter where you’re headed, Malmö taxis are a reliable, efficient, and convenient way to get around if you want to enjoy a seamless experience navigating the city at your pace.

Malmö taxi prices

Taking a taxi in Malmö can be more expensive than in other countries, as with most northern European and Scandinavian cities. Malmö taxis use taximeters to calculate their fares depending on the time taken and the distance travelled, but operate with a “free pricing” policy which means that there can be considerable differences between operators. However, taxis in Malmö are mandated to display clear and comparative rates on yellow and white signs, typically located on the windows near the back doors. For this reason, it’s important to always review the pricing information before booking or getting into a cab. Here are the average rates used:

Day rates

Base fare: €5 (SEK 59)
Cost per 1 km: €2.10 (SEK 24.50)
Cost per 1-hour of waiting: €51 (SEK 600)

Night rates

Although rates and fees differ greatly depending on the company, the tariff for most Malmö taxis will be higher during night hours and on Sundays. You can find more information by visiting the Swedish Transport Agency website.

Please be aware that the rates provided are intended as a general guide and are subject to potential fluctuations. Additionally, the final fare may include surcharges.

Malmö taxi tips

  1. Taxi pricing is deregulated in Sweden so always check each company's rates and surcharges before booking.
  2. Check the taximeter before starting your ride to ensure it's reset and set to the correct tariff.
  3. In Malmö, taxis generally accept credit and debit cards, but it's always best to inform your driver in advance.
  4. You don't have to tip your driver in Malmö, but rounding up the fare is a nice gesture of appreciation.
  5. English is widely spoken in Sweden, so you shouldn't have any trouble communicating with Malmö taxi drivers.

Wheelchair-accessible taxis in Malmö

On the whole, Sweden is a very accessible country, however, as no local provider specialises in accessible transfers, we recommend enquiring about your chosen company’s fleet of vehicles beforehand to make sure that a suitable vehicle is available on your chosen dates, and that all your needs are met.

Malmö taxi safety and complaints

Safety is a priority when it comes to Malmö’s taxis. All vehicles must meet safety standards, and all drivers must be fully licensed and certified. If you have any issues while travelling in a taxi in Malmö, there are several ways to file a complaint. You should contact the company directly first, but if they fail to answer or you’re not satisfied with their response, you can raise the matter with the local municipality or the Swedish Transport Agency. For complaints of a criminal nature, you should contact the police directly at 114 14, or the emergency number (112).

How do taxis in Malmö calculate their fares?

To choose the best company for your needs, always check the pricing details before booking or prior to getting in a Malmö taxi.
