Tallinn taxi prices

Tallinn taxi prices vary from company to company, and all vehicles must display their rates on a yellow sticker on the car’s right rear window.

Taxis in Tallinn calculate their fares using a taximeter based on time and distance travelled, the basic rates are as follows:

Base fee: €1.90
Price Per Km: €0.40
Waiting time per minute: €0.20

Keep in mind that these rates are not set and can vary widely. Aside from local taxis and private companies, you can also find a ride using apps such as Bolt and Uber or, if you’d prefer to have everything sorted before your arrival and pay a fixed competitive rate, you can pre-book your private transfer with Welcome Pickups.
