Cost of a Stockholm Taxi

Unfortunately, Stockholm taxi prices are not regulated. It is the passenger’s responsibility to check prices before entering the cab. Always look for the indicated price on the yellow-and-white label near the rear door window. The highest unit price of most taxis is between 290 – 390 SEK (€28-38). Taxis use taximetres to determine the final fare for your journey in the city. The price indicated on the taximeter is in Swedish kronor.

Here are some of the most common price tags for rides in Sweden:

Base fare – 45 SEK (€5)

Weekdays (except holidays 10:00-14:00) – 12.80 SEK/km (€1.26)

Weekends and holidays – 13.60 SEK/km (€1.34)

For trips to and from Stockholm Arlanda Airport, most Stockholm taxi companies have fixed prices of between SEK 450-500 (€44-50).

It is important to note that Sweden is a very environmentally aware country. Several cheap Stockholm taxi companies have a very high proportion of eco-vehicles. The city has installed a system that gives priority to cabs with low carbon emission levels.

How to get a Taxi in Stockholm

Stockholm has more than 5,500 taxis, so getting one shouldn’t be hard. You can easily get hold of a taxi by calling a taxi company, hailing one on the street or taking one from a rank. Licensed drivers hover around the airport, popular tourist areas and international hotels.

In general, locals don’t stop taxis on the street. They’d rather book a taxi with a reputable cab company or order one via an app. If you want to stay inside, opt for an app or contact a local company by phone. When you’re ordering a cab on the phone, ask the agent to quote a fixed price (fast pris).

Approved taxis with metered fares bear yellow number plates. Credit cards are always accepted. Taxi Stockholm (tel: +46 08-15 00 00) and Sverige taxi (tel: +46 020 35 00 00) are the most popular and trustworthy options for the city of Stockholm.

Stockholm Taxi Tips

  1. In addition to the licensed taxi companies, there are numerous independent firms, so caution is advised to newcomers.
  2. To spot a licensed driver, look for a yellow and white label on the rear side window, marked with the price in Swedish kronor (SEK).
  3. If you want to book a cab by phone but you don’t have phone service, you can always ask any hotel reception to call one for you.

Wheelchair Accessible Taxis in Stockholm

Stockholm has carried out extensive works to improve accessibility at their transportation network for people with disabilities. However, regular taxis are not equipped with wheelchair friendly facilities. If you wish to book an adapted vehicle to explore the city comfortably, contact Sverige taxi (tel: +46 020 35 00 00).

Safety and Complaints for Stockholm Taxis

Sweden is a very safe place to travel, but the taxi industry in Stockholm does not have the best reputation. Since drivers can charge as much as they want, there have been reports of astronomical tariffs. While things may have improved, it would be wise to ask the driver for an approximate fare before entering the vehicle or call a taxi company and request a fixed price. If you still believe you have been overcharged, contact the local police as soon as possible.

Frequently asked questions

Should I tip the driver in Stockholm?

Taxi drivers in Sweden don’t usually expect tips, but if you have been helped with your luggage, or merely want to make a nice gesture, a tip around 10% should be fine.

The city’s public transport network is fast and modern but expensive. While the metro is certainly convenient, nothing beats the comfort of a nice warm cab.
