MISC | Taxi Fares

Hmm, too cheap to ride a taxi? Or too expensive? Share your thoughts! If you need to explain the taxi fares, please use your local currency.

In the Netherlands the taxirides are quite expensive.

National taxiprices by law.



So for example a 7 km ride of 15 minutes cost: €22,49 (USD 29,97)

Montreal fares the most expensive in the country plus its taxi fleet seems much larger than the other cities' fleets...compared to the other cities, there's nearly always a cab when you need one plus they're cleaner and sightlier (presentable-looking) too. (NYC's fares much cheaper.)
