"Not As Bad As Some Make Out But..........." Taxis Tip by johngayton
Taxis, Amsterdam: 20 reviews and 17 photos
I have only used taxis here in Amsterdam on two occassions: the first being my first ever visit when I arrived at Centraal Station about 1 am with no idea where my hotel was; the second being one particularly drunken evening when I couldn't find the night bus stop - having wandered all the way from Leidseplein (going in the oppposite direction to where I should have been) all the way back to Centraal and even after asking directions from a policeman I still couldn't find it!!
On both occassions I didn't actually have any problems with the taxi, the guys put on the meter, with whatever additions added, and the bill, although a tad more expensive than the night bus, not too wallet-destroying. That said, taxis are expensive and rarely necessary given the excellent public transport options. If you do however need a taxi it is usually best to prearrange with a reputable company, or through your hotel, which will normally quote you a fixed fare.
Number and site below are not a personal recommendation.
