When paying, you can round the amount up to the nearest euro cent or the whole euro. It is better to order a taxi by phone than to stop it on the street. The starting amount is between EUR 5 and EUR 15. The taxi driver is obliged to issue a receipt to the customer if he / she so requests. All taxis have multiple fares: lower when ordering by phone, higher when stopping a taxi on the street or boarding a taxi stand. The taximeter in the taxi shows two values: the fare rate and the total cost of the trip.
