Wroclaw taxi prices
Wroclaw taxi drivers calculate their fares using a taximeter. The fare changes depending on the distance and the time of day. The base rate is €1.15 (PLN 5.10) day or night. The day tariff is €0.58 (PLN 2.55) per km, which runs from 6:00 to 22:00, while the night tariff is €0.86 (PLN 3.80) per km, which is in operation from 22:00 to 6:00.
If your driver needs to wait for you or is in start-stop traffic navigating the city, there is an additional charge of €0.01 (PLN 0.35) per minute.
As an example, a taxi from Wroclaw Airport to the city centre will cost you around €19 (PLN 85). It’s a 12 km journey that shouldn’t take longer than 30 minutes. A shorter journey, like a trip from Cathedral Island, Ostrow Tumski to the train station Wroclaw Glowny, will cost you around €3.84 (PLN 17). That journey is only 2.5 km and will take 9 minutes in light traffic.
Before you get in the taxi, make sure the rate card and taximeter are visible as overcharging is quite common. If you want the peace of mind of a fixed-rate private transfer, consider booking in advance with a top-rated international company like Welcome.

- Avoid hailing a taxi on the street. Instead, call a local phone dispatch taxi company or pre-book a private transfer to ensure reasonable rates and reliable service.
- Make sure you can see the taximeter and rate card before you get into the taxi. If you can’t see them, the taxi driver may be unlicensed.
- Though tips are not obligatory, they tend to be expected from tourists. 10% is a good tip rate for Wroclaw taxis.
