Cost of an Oslo Taxi
Unfortunately, Oslo taxi prices are a bit high in this Norwegian capital. Fortunately, they are regulated by the local government.
All taxis in Oslo use taximeters. The taximetre starts at 30 NOK if you hail a taxi from the street, or 50 NOK if you book one by phone or online. After this you pay about 20 NOK per kilometre, and 7 NOK per minute. The base fare is about 80 NOK during the day, and 160 NOK at night.
Oslo Taxis accept major credit cards. In some taxis, the driver will ask you to swipe your card at the beginning of the journey, to check whether or not it is valid. The card is then swiped again when you arrive, for payment. For tips, you can round up to the nearest figure.

How to get a Taxi in Oslo
Taxis are usually available around the clock. You can wave at the driver, walk to the closest taxi stop or even call a local company and book in advance. Taxis can be stopped anywhere, but there are also taxi stands, marked “taxi” or “drosje”. They don’t have specific colours, and are recognisable by the white signs on the roof, which are lit when the driver is available.
Oslo taxis can typically be seen outside major city landmarks, in popular districts or five-star hotels. It is highly recommended to ask the price before hopping on the taxi. Drivers are usually polite and keep their vehicles very clean.
During rush hours or bank holidays, booking a taxi in advance via an app or phone would be your best bet. Oslo Taxi is the largest and most reliable company for the Norwegian capital.

Oslo Taxi Tips
- Taxi stands are available at Oslo S, shopping centres and city squares, but only a taxi with a lit sign is available for hire.
- Trains in the city run from 05:35 to 00:35 every 10 minutes. After that time, taxis and night buses are the only possible means of transfer.
- Make sure to ask the driver for an approximate price for your destination before entering the vehicle.
Wheelchair Accessible Taxis in Oslo
Wheelchair accessible taxis are available in Oslo. These wheelchair accessible vehicles allow a passenger to enter the taxi via an extended ramp and remain seated in their wheelchair for the entire journey. Each accessible taxi has securement space for one manual or powered wheelchair with safety tie downs/straps. A relatively affordable option is Oslo taxi, which also offers wheelchair taxi services.

Norwegian taxi drivers speak English as a rule, and usually won’t try to scam tourists. However, if you think that a driver may attempt to overcharge you or take a longer route than anticipated, feel free to stop the car and contact the local police station.
