"Taxi's charge per person" Gastein Transportation Tip by mcblacktiger

Gastein Transportation: 3 reviews and 1 photos

All of the taxi's that we saw in Bad Gastein were the mini buss verity, so for the first couple of days we assumed, like in almost every other city in the world, that the more people in the taxi to split the fare, the better. WRONG !!! In Bad Gastein, they charge for each person in the taxi, so don't bother looking for people to share the expense, it won't save you any money.

The first couple of days that we were there, we just thought the taxi's were crazy expensive, because they were charging a group of 5-7 15-21 Euros to go about 2 kilometers.

To go from the Bahnhoff, or the central train/bus/taxi/skilift part of Bad Gastein to our hotel(about 2 kilometers) averaged around 3 Euros per person.
