Taxi Fares ????

  • Last night I was darting around the local area, so I used the local taxi's. Between 7pm and 9pm I took 5 taxi's rides. All different cars with different drivers. All the taxi's had the same Tariff showing, Tariff 3, and starting fares being shown were as follows -

    1st taxi -  3.40 Euros

    2nd taxi - 3.10 Euros

    3rd taxi - 3.40 Euros

    4th taxi - 2.80 Euros

    5th taxi - 3.10 Euros


    Cannot understand why there were 3 different starting charges. I thought there was a standard opening rate, or is it a case that if they set the basic charge just OVER 3 Euros, they will probably be given 3.50 or 4.00, where if its 2.80 they will only probably be given 3.00 euros.......... Crafty or what ?????

    Follow up:

    Taxi ride the following night

    6th taxi - 3.05 Euros

    I have now come to the conclusion that they are just making the prices up !!!!!!!!

  • That starting price is a mystery, I had always presumed it was passenger number, luggage etc.

    It would have been fair to have explained the minimum price on their website.

    It does feel like pot luck as it is the first thing you are aware of when you get in a Taxi.

    At least it is very clear what is on the clock/meter...

  • We got 5 taxis last week (different nights) most started at 3.05, the others were 2.85 which is what it normally starts at. They were all roughly the same time. I'm sure someone will know the answer as to the different charges.
