The costs for a trip with a street taxi depend on: the starting rate, the distance and the duration of the trip. A maximum rate applies to all these components. This rate prevents you as a customer from having to pay too much.
Construction costs taxi ride
The ride price consists of 3 parts:
– a starting rate;
– a price per kilometer driven;
– a price for the duration of the journey.
A maximum rate applies for each component. After the taxi ride you will receive a printed receipt from the driver. It states how the fare is structured and where you can go with any complaints.
Rates use taxi.
A taxi company or driver sets the rates himself. In doing so, he must adhere to the maximum rates. The rates are stated on the rate card in the taxi.
Calculation example cost taxi ride
Suppose you make a 7 kilometer ride that takes 15 minutes. If the taxi company were to use the maximum rates, this trip would cost:
– starting rate € 2.89 +
– kilometer rate 7 x € 2.12 = € 14.84
– time rate 15 x € 0.35 = 5.25.
In total this is € 22.98.
Delay during the taxi ride
The cost of a delay during the taxi journey is fairly divided between the taxi company and the customer. So if you get stuck in traffic, you have to pay more. If the ride is very fast, you are cheaper.
