Tips to hire Professional Taxi Paris at Affordable Rate

Paris is very developed when it comes to transportation and the frequency of its public transport has made it even better. People prefer metros and buses for commutation but Taxi is something which is still one of the most common modes of transportation due to its availability around the clock. But people find a lot of challenges in hiring a taxi. Taxi Drivers in Paris are not very much aware of the Street map of Paris. So If you are aware of a straight route which you prefer then you should let the taxi drivers know about it straight away. There are more than 18000 licensed taxis Paris and its suburbs but still, it can be difficult to find a taxi in Paris, especially during the peak hours or odd hours like very late in the night or early morning. The main challenge could be to find out the rank of the Taxis on the busy streets or stations and junctions. A taxi with a white light on its roof is free and if you see an orange light there then the taxi is occupied and can't serve you.

The fare and Time Schedule for Taxi

You have to pay a service charge which is approximately €2.10. The fares are then dependent on area and the time-

I- 10 AM to 5 PM Monday-Saturday Central Paris, €0.82/ km.

II- 5 PM to 10 AM Monday-Friday, 5 PM till midnight Saturday, 7 AM till midnight Sunday Central Paris; 7 AM to 7 PM Monday to Saturday inner suburban area and the airports, €1.10/km.

III- Midnight till 7 AM Sunday Central Paris; 7 PM to 7 AM Monday-Saturday, all days Sunday inner suburban areas and the airports; €1.33/km.

Most of the journeys in the Central Paris will cost you around €6 to €12; there is a minimum charge which is approximately €5.60, and additional €1 for each bag of luggage that weighs more than 5 kg or heavy objects like some boxes or appliances. A surcharge of €0.70 is taken from the mainline stations.In Paris, drivers are strict to the number of passengers for the ride. Only three people are allowed to board the cab in the most of the suburban areas however most of the drivers allow 2 or more than 2 kids to accompany you. If you have a fourth adult passenger with you then you need to pay the additional charge of about €2.75 for him.

Taxi hiring rules

If you need to hire a taxi in Paris you need to know below things as a taxi is not allowed to stop:

I- if the taxi is 50 m or less from a designated taxi stop. It is considered illegal in Paris for a driver to pick up any passengers within 50 meters of distance from a designated stop. To avoid this, please walk to the nearby stop and hire the first cab which is aligned.

II- if the taxi can't get to you so easily which means that you are in a no-stop zone. You need to check about such areas since there is no chance that you can get a cab there.

III- if the taxi is already on the way to pick up someone else who might have booked the cab before you. However, the taxi will have a Red or amber LED light on its roof to show that it is either occupied or going to pick someone.

Tips for a better and safer ride and where to report in case of any complaints

Giving a tip and the end of your trip is not something to oblige, however, if you round up the fare to the nearest euro is considered polite. In Paris, Taxi drivers cannot refuse for the rides if they have deemed you too short, although they can refuse you to go in a certain direction of the city during the last 30 minutes of their service. But generally, these rules are ignored. You should hire only licensed taxi because if you take an unlicensed taxi and get ripped off unfortunately then you can't expect any sympathy from the Parisian Police. If you need a receipt for your ride please ask for la note or un recu. If you have any complaints with the driver or the ride then you can file the complaint with the Bureau de; La publique36, rue des, Morillon, 75732, Paris Cedex- 15.
