Split Taxi prices
Taxis in Split use a regulated charging system that is similar all over Croatia. You will be charged using a taximeter based on distance travelled. So, Split taxi prices will depend on how long your journey is. You can usually see the fares and base prices written on a board at the official taxi ranks. However, if you’re travelling outside of the city centre, you should try and secure a set-price before beginning your journey, as this can work out much cheaper.
Base fare – €2.38
Price per km – €1.10
There will be additional Split taxi prices and charges for things such as each item of excess luggage over 12kg (€0.33), keeping your driver waiting for one hour (€6.62) and travelling during major holidays.

How to get a Taxi in Split Croatia
Unlike most other cities in Croatia, taxis in Split rarely stop in the street as they wait at the designated taxi ranks, rather than driving around looking for passengers. You can find these taxi ranks located around the city, but the most popular can be found along the Riva waterfront, inside the Split ferry port, at the bus and railway station, and next to the Church of St.Frane.
Your other option is to call the local radio taxi company. This is a great choice if the weather is bad or you need to travel late at night as you can wait inside for your car. To book your Split radio taxi, you can call +385 060 850 850. Keep in mind there will be an additional charge for this service.
Booking your Split taxi in Advance
As you can’t usually flag down a Split taxi in the street, waiting times at the taxi ranks or for radio taxis can be long and frustrating. To avoid the wait and spend more time enjoying your time in Split, you can book your taxis in advance. For a fast, top-rated and reliable Split taxi service, we recommend booking your taxi in advance with Welcome Pickups.
