Cost of a Nice Taxi
Taxis in Nice are more expensive than in other European coastal cities. The good news is, taxi tariffs in France are officially set by cities or districts.
Base fare – €3
Price per km day – €2.08
Price per km night – €2.60
Tthe minimum fare for a Nice taxi is as high as €7. Additional costs include a suitcase charge of €2 per bag and a supplement of €2.50 for the fifth passenger. The fare from Nice Airport to the city centre is fixed and comes at the price of €35.
It has been reported by numerous travellers that taxis won’t want to move for less than €15. Although this claim is more or less true, things have improved in the last few years and drivers even accept credit cards, although they would rather be paid in cash and tipped 2-5%.

How to get a Taxi in Nice
Taxis can be hailed in the street, reserved or found near taxi ranks. These can be spotted near famous monuments, hotels and attractions. Drivers hover around Vieille Ville, Musée Matisse, Palais des Expositions and other key areas.
Taxis queuing around ranks are the least appealing option for travellers. While it is generally true that drivers have improved their transfer services overall, local taxi companies are more professional, with Taxi Nice French Riviera and G7 being the top providers for the city of Nice.

Nice Taxi Tips
- Upon entering the taxi, start the conversation with the all-important greeting “Bonjour Monsieur/Madame”, otherwise the driver might feel offended.
- If the meter is obscured, the driver is trying to overcharge you. Politely ask to see the meter to let them know they can't get away with it.
- Check that the taximeter is set correctly to day or at all. Some drivers attempt to fool newcomers and quote a flat price instead.
- Drivers may actually refuse short trips and and move on to the next passenger or neglect to give you a receipt.
