Taxis in Amsterdam

Official taxis as well as taxi stands

Licensed taxis have:

  • a blue number plate
  • a light on the roofing system with the firm name as well as taxi number
  • a taximeter
  • a noticeable taxi license of the chauffeur.

It would be best if you were offered a printed invoice after your taxi trip. Maintain the invoice, as it specifies all details regarding the taxi, the chauffeur, and your journey.

You will undoubtedly locate licensed taxis at the official taxi stands (taxi ranks).
