Travelling by taxi in Sweden
Taxis in Sweden transport you quickly and comfortably to your destination. A large number of taxi firms, both large and small, transport taxi customers around Sweden.
Depending on where you are on your travels you can either call and book a taxi via taxi booking services, go to a taxi rank or hail a taxi out on the street.
The Swedish taxi industry has been deregulated. Some companies have fixed prices but they can vary depending on the time of day and if it is the weekend. For this reason, it is recommended that you confirm the taxi fare before setting off. Credit cards are usually accepted. In line with the Swedish National Road Administration's regulations, the taxi driver must have all price information clearly visible both inside and outside of the vehicle.
Swedish taxi drivers are highly skilled. Gaining a taxi driver licence requires that the driver is both skilled at driving and suitable for the job and he or she must meet a number of medical requirements. A licence is issued by the Swedish National Road Administration which is then examined by the County Administrative Board to see if the applicant is suitable to hold a licence for prosecuting professional taxi services.
Airport cabs have fixed prices throughout Sweden. A price database is available on their website where you can obtain prices for shared air taxis or own air taxi to and from more than 3,000 places in Sweden.
