Paris Taxi

Paris, the French capital, is attracting tourists for centuries. It’s a city of magnificent architectural beauty and romance. In Paris, you will have a chance to marvel at many iconic landmarks: Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, Avenue des Champs-Élysées and many more.

But what's the best way of getting around the "city of lights"? Continue reading to find out all about taxis and private transportation.

How to Find a Taxi in Paris

You can get your ride in one of the following ways:

  • taxi ranks - there are more than 700, scattered around the city, close to main points of interest
  • call 01 45 30 30 30 or any other major company
  • hail a cab in the street
  • smartphone apps

You will easily spot licensed vehicles: they all have a roof sign “Taxi Parisien” with green or red lights (green is lit for "available"). They also have to have a meter inside, which will calculate your fare at the end of the trip.

If you are unsure whether the car is licensed or not, you could always ask to see the official license plate. Never accept a ride from an unlicensed driver.

Paris Taxi rates

Be prepared to pay a high rate for your ride, as taxis in Paris are expensive. The rates are regulated, and your price will be based on the following:

  • a pickup charge (approx. 3,50 EUR)
  • the distance (about 1,30 EUR per kilometer)
  • standby (about 33,00 EUR per hour)

The total cost will be displayed on the meter at the end of the ride. If you want to tip the driver, 5 - 10% of the bill is appropriate.

NOTES: The minimum fare is 7,30 EUR.

The lights underneath the roof sign correspond to different rates - A, B, or C. They apply to specific times of the day, days of the week, and the route (city limits or suburban zones).

Private Transfers vs Taxi

If you want all the benefits of taxis, but without the high price, book private transportation. You avoid extra charges on the day of, and you will also be able to place your order in advance.
