Taxis Tips (6)

Taxi experiences from saturday 10th of March 2012

We were warned and told to use only Tallink taxis (which are mainly yellow) because some other taxis propably will cheet you.
So when we needed a taxi we took a Tallink taxi from a station nearby Viru Hotel to Tallink Spa hotel. The price was 9,20 Euros.
Other people took a taxi from another company at the corner of City Portus Hotel near by D-terminal to Tallink Spa Hotel and the price was something like 24,60 for a shorter route than ours.
So if I ever use a taxi in Tallin I know which comapy to use - although there is of course no guarantee for a normal price even then.

Taxis may overcharge tourists

If possible, ask a local Estonian to give you numbers to taxi companies that charge the local rates. I was shocked by the difference between what I was charged when I called for a cab on my own -- and what I was charged after a local Estonian called the cab company and negotiated the fare in advance for me. In my opinion, the Tallinn police should crack down on this dishonest practice.

Tallinn, and Taxi's!...don't get taken for a ride!

Please take note that when in Tallinn and you travel by taxi, make sure you view their price rates which should by located on both rear car door windows.
Some of the taxi driver's jack up their prices when taking on tourist's. So just be aware and don't get taken for a ride.
Try some of the lower priced cab companies like: Oberst Taxi (+372 655 8473), Marabu Taxi (65 00 006), Sobra (534 74 474), while Tulika and Linna Taxi which is Tallinn most decent taxi, their prices are a bit higher then the fore mentioned but very good service from all.
The taxi companies and their phone numbers should be available to you through your travel agent. Be aware of their sit-in prices and start-up prices.
IF YOU ARE SUSPICIOUS AT YOUR TOTALED PRICE, YOU CAN ASK FOR A RECEIPT! If the driver refuses, you DON'T have to pay. Estonian law. That's to combat the driver's who are "Taking you for a ride".

Enjoy Estonia!

Have fun, enjoy life!

Mysterious Taxi Meters

Taxi meters should start at approx. 35EEK per trip but it appears that the drivers can hit a button that changes the starting point to 75EEK. I never argued with the drivers about this (they just pretend not to understand) but I gave the "honest" drivers a tip (tipping not required but I still wanted to) that was usually more than the difference here.

taxidrivers and tourists

In Tallinn(capital of Estonia) some(many) taxi takeing more money from tourists, because they think they do not know the real prices and so..and it works. They could sometimes take even 4 time bigger price..

So here are some advices.
From Tallinn airport to the centrum taxi should cost like 70 krouns(1EURO= 15.6 EEK)
From Tallinn Bus-station to centrum of the city it should cost 35-50 krouns
From Balti Railway Station to centrum 35-50 krouns.
And if they ask you to pay more than 200 EEK then be sure they cheat you and ask some help from securuty or police..write town the car number also and remember what firm it was..and from taxidriver ask for cheque they have to give it to you..so you have some proofs also..in that time i think taxidriver is so afraid that he is going to make a new cheaper price:)
Do not trust "Linnatakso" and "omeratakso"

Taxi drivers are cheaters

Avoid taking a Taxi in Tallinn. I had the feeling that almost all drivers are cheaters. The prices are displayed at the Taxi windows: The starting price should be 12 EEK and the cost per km should be between 4.50 to 7 EEK (Minimum fare 35 EEK). In fact tourists are charged up to 3 times higher prices. Maybe all drivers have fixed their meters to run at high speed when a tourist enters the Taxi. If possible take the Public Tansport instead. It is very cheap and frequent until midnight. 1 EUR = 15,6 EEK
