Amsterdam, Netherlands - Taxi fares and info
Finding a taxi
Amsterdam taxi cars aren't painted in any certain colors, but all have rooftop signs and blue license plates. Cabs can be found outside the airport, the central train station, hotels and tourist spots, or you can also hail them from the pavement.
There is usually not a lack of taxis in Amsterdam. Be sure however that you only use official taxis, who are controlled and regulated; you might otherwise end up paying much more than you should.
General taxi fares
