Taxis

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageTaxis are somewhat hard to find, especially when in demand. However, they can be hailed in the street or at taxi stands (arrêts taxis), at the airports and stations as well as at major road junctions. The light on the roofs of taxis indicate if they are available for hire or busy, with the yellow light showing the former, and an orange light showing the latter. The taxi stands have telephones incase a taxi isn’t available at the stand. Taxis are considerably cheap, especially during the night, however it is a lot faster to walk during the day as traffic jams are a very common site. It should be kept in mind that there are extra charges for luggage, waiting, and extra passengers, as well as for pick-ups. Tipping isn’t necessary but drivers do expect something around 10%.The three taxi companies operating in Paris are Alpha Taxis, Taxis Bleus and Taxis G7.

 

Telephone numbers for two taxi companies are given below:

•    Alpha Taxis: (01) 4585 8585

•    Taxis G7: (01) 4739 4739
