Taxi in Taiwan
 
 
 
 
 

Major cities in Taiwan have a great number of taxis in operation. The following prices are what you approximately will have to pay for a taxi ride;

• Charges are NT$70 for the first 1.5km,
• NT$5 for each additional 300 meters,
• An additional NT$5 is charged for every two minutes of waiting,
• A 20% surcharge is added to fares between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.,
• NT$10 dollars tip needed for a cab ordered by phone and for luggage placed in the back of the taxi.
• Charges may be raised during Chinese New Year holidays.
• Out-of-town or long-distance travels may not apply to meter charge, therefore travelers are advised to set a fixed price before getting on the taxi.
• A 50% additional charge to the meter charge applies for cab travel to CKS airport.
• It costs around NT$1,200 to travel from CKS to Taipei city, and NT$300 for traveling between Kaohsiung city and Hsiaokang airport.

Most drivers do not speak English, so it is a good tip to have hotel personnel (or a local friend) write both your destination and your hotel's name and address or your home’s address in Chinese, along with the projected cost of each one-way trip.

Should any problems arise, such as being unreasonably overcharged, write down the driver’s name / plate number / taxi registered number and contact one of the local Foreign Affairs Police Service stations.
