Taxi’s are considered to be quite expensive. Taxi’s are only allowed to take in customers at an official taxi stop, or ordered by phone.  Different taxi companies are available in the big cities. You can recognise them easily by the ‘Taxi’ sign on the roof of the car and the blue number plates. There are permanent taxi stops in many cities (particularly near popular squares, attractions and stations). If you want to take a taxi, make sure you get into an authorised taxi. Every taxi in Holland is required to show a driver’s certificate with photograph upon request. Every taxi must have a licence. In addition, the taxi rates must be clearly visible both in and outside the taxi. Finally, the driver must be able to hand over a printed fare slip at the end of the ride, which should specify data about the ride and the taxi company.
