Sarajevo Taxi Service

Sarajevo is a relatively small city so moving around by taxi guarantees that you’ll reach your destination quickly and comfortably. Compared to other European cities, taking a local ‘taksi’ in Sarajevo is relatively cheap, which makes it an ideal way of transport during your trip. Especially if you’re arriving by plane, taking a Sarajevo Airport taxi will take a lot of the stress off you as you won’t have to look for bus or train schedules in a foreign language. Taxis are available 24/7 and you can take one from an official taxi rank, hail one from the street or call one of the many taxi companies that operate in the city.

Sarajevo Taxi Tips

  1. Not all taxi drivers in Sarajevo speak English, so always make sure to have your address written down.
  2. Most Sarajevo taxis don’t accept card payments so always have some cash on you.
  3. Once you enter the taxi, make sure that the driver sets the taximeter to the base fare of €1 (KM 1.90) and that it’s in use throughout the ride.
  4. It’s best to ask for your receipt at the end of the ride, in case you forget any items in the taxi or face any issues.
  5. If you’re planning to head to Republika Srpska, be aware that the driver might take off the taxi sign as they’re not allowed to drive on the ground with their taxi sign on.

Wheelchair Accessible Taxis in Sarajevo

Standard taxis in Sarajevo that you’ll find at taxi ranks or that can be hailed from the street can fit a wheelchair in the trunk but aren’t fully accessible to wheelchairs. To move around in comfort using a fully accessible taxi, you’ll need to book one in advance, by calling the company Taxi 8 at +387 62 828 928. They are available 24/7 in Sarajevo and offer fully accessible vehicles equipped with ramps so wheelchair users can get on easily and travel safely.

Sarajevo Taxi Safety and Complaints

Taxis in Sarajevo are regulated by the state, which, overall, makes them safe to use as long as you use an official, licensed taxi. However, as service and work ethic may vary between the different drivers and taxi companies, if you think that you have been overcharged or you need to report a driver for unprofessional behaviour, make sure to ask for a receipt at the end of your ride and write down the driver’s name, the company they work for and their registration number. You can then contact the Tourist Information Centre by calling +387 33 252 000 and they will guide you further on the necessary steps.
