Taxi fare from Airport to Amsterdam
We were surprised that a taxi driver sought us out in the terminal. He put the jump on his fellow taxi drivers who were waiting patiently in line at the taxi stand for passengers. He wanted to charge us 50 euro for transport to our hotel in Amsterdam (near the Red Light District). We negoiated and he accepted 40 euro (tip included).
Taxi to/from Schiphol Airport
Taxi's in and around Amsterdam can be real expensive. Do as I do (and more locals) book a taxi in advance and it save's you a lot of money. Have good experience with the guys from IJburg. IJburg is the new neighborhood of Amsterdam.

Taxi from Schiphol Airport
I have had different experiences with taxis, good and bad. Some drivers are very friendly and helpful, but a lot of them are highway men in disguise. Especially tourist or women travelling alone are subject to very high fare prices or harassment. You are best to book with a reputable company. Also a good tip is to make note of the license plate of the taxi if you feel you have been overcharged or intimidated.
I have had very good experiences with an Amsterdam taxi company called Ambassador Taxi Services. They pick me up from the airport or take me to it when I need to travel abroad. They give me an excellent service at a good rate. I would recommend them to any traveller going to Holland.

Schipol Taxi Service
We booked the taxi online through Schiphol airport web pages.
When you arrive you go to the STS desk located in the main hall. We had to wait a bit for a taxi as they were busy but on the return from our hotel they were punctual.
The price for the return journey was 67 euros not cheap but if you don't want to catch the train or use the Connexion service at the same desk I would say this the best way to your hotel.
Schiphol Airport to Amsterdam - Taxi
Taking the Taxi? Hahaha ok, I tried it once (costs of the company) but don't feel like doing it again.
Why not? From the Dam square to Schiphol (call for Schiphol Plaza if your are going to the airport) it will cost you around €50,-. It's not faster than taking the train (especially if you need to be picked-up at the door).
But if you are somewhere stuck from public transport or need to travel at nightly hours you might be better of by taking a cab. Ask your hotel for deals. From the airport there are simple rules, only accept rides at the taxistand. DO NOT take offers from people who offer you a ride in the terminal or just outside the doors, these are private companies usually charging you twice or tripple the amount you would be paying for a normal taxi, and don't expect better service. The normal taxicompanies (TCA / Taxi Direct) are trusthworthy and usually do not rip you off.
Taxi to airport
Since i missed my train and next train would be too close to flight departure, we decided to take a taxi to airport. Although is a comfortable and quick option (as long as there is not traffic) it can also prove to be expensive. A taxi from Centraal Station to Schilphol Airport costs around 40euros.
