Taxis in Tallinn
A few useful tips for taking a taxi in Tallinn:
Passengers can choose a taxi of their choice at the taxi stand, but it is cheaper to call a taxi by phone.
There are no limits to the prices chargeable, which is why the taxis use different price lists.
The cost of the taxi-ride for the passenger is shown on the taximeter display – taxi drivers are not allowed to charge passengers a fare higher than the taximeter reading!
Taxi fares can be paid in cash only, but today many taxicabs also allow you to pay by debit card.
Before you get into the taxi, read the price list for the taxi’s services – this you can find on the window of the rear passenger door.
In order to avoid misunderstandings, ask for an estimated cost of the ride to your destination before the ride begins.
Taxi drivers are obligated to give the user of the taxi service a receipt printed with the taximeter printer (do not forget to ask the taxi driver for a taximeter printer receipt at the end of your taxi ride).
If the taximeter and printer are broken, the passenger has the right to refuse to pay the fare.
