Pula taxi prices

Pula taxi drivers calculate their fares using a taximeter, so the fare will vary depending on the distance travelled, the time of day, and the presence or absence of luggage. 

The day tariff is €1.80 per km. This rate runs from 05:00 to 22:00. 
The night tariff is an extra 20% between 22:00 and 05:00, which also applies on public holidays.
The extra charge for luggage is between €0.50 and €1.
There is a minimum tariff of €4.95 regardless of the time of day.

Generally, a taxi in Pula won’t offer set-rate fares. However, if you are travelling outside of the city to nearby towns like Rovinj, Rijeka or Umag, the taxi may offer you a fixed rate. 

If you’d like a set-rate fare for all of your transport in Pula, consider booking a private transfer with a top-rated service like Welcome Pickups in advance.

How to get a taxi in Pula

As Pula is a tourist hotspot in Croatia, taxis are readily available. They are easy to spot because they have the signature “taxi” sign on top of the vehicles. There are more taxis around town squares and transport hubs like the bus station and the airport. As with many European cities, Pula has many unlicensed taxi drivers, so make sure you can see the taximeter and rate card clearly before you get into the cab.

As a tourist, you are safer pre-booking a private transfer in advance or calling one of the local taxi numbers below to request a pickup:

Taxi Pula: +385 52 223 228

Pula taxi tips

  1. As of January 2023, the official currency in Croatia is the Euro; by law, Pula taxis should display the final price in both Euros and Croatian Kuna.
  2. Carry Euros with you in cash to pay for your taxi.
  3. Make sure that the taximeter is reset to the base rate of €1,95 before you start your journey.
  4. Confirm the price you can expect to pay with your driver before starting your taxi journey.

Wheelchair-accessible taxis in Pula

Wheelchair-accessible taxis are rare in Pula. Most Pula taxis are four-seater sedans that are not equipped to carry wheelchairs. If you need an adapted taxi, it’s best to pre-book a private transfer to ensure the availability of an appropriate vehicle. Contacting a local travel agency or tour operator and specifying your requirements would be a good place to start.

Pula taxi safety and complaints

Pula is generally considered quite safe with a low crime rate. As a tourist, you’re more likely to encounter issues on public buses than in taxis. Having said that, unlicensed taxi drivers are common, so it’s essential to avoid unofficial drivers and only use taxi vehicles where you can see the taximeter and rate card before starting your journey. 

If you have any problems while travelling in a Pula taxi, you can contact the local police using the following numbers:
Pula Transport Police: +385 52 538 738
Istrian Police Administration: +385 52 532 111

Frequently asked questions

How will my Pula taxi driver calculate the trip’s fare?

Your Pula taxi driver will calculate the trip’s fare using a taximeter. The cost is calculated based on the distance travelled, the presence of luggage, and the time of day. You can expect to pay €1.80 per km. That rate increases by 20% during night hours and public holidays. There can be some price discrepancies between operators though, due to unlicensed or untrustworthy drivers overcharging tourists. If you want the peace of mind of a set-rate fare, consider booking your transfers in advance.

Are Pula taxis reliable?

Pula taxis are generally quite reliable. However, the wait for a taxi can be long during busy periods – especially if you require a wheelchair-accessible vehicle or a minivan for a larger group. If you want a guaranteed reliable service with no wait times, a private transfer with a company like Welcome Pickups is the way to go.
