Amsterdam Airport Taxi to city

Taking a taxi at Amsterdam Airport turns to be easy and convenient, especially if passengers are travelling with a lot of luggage as they offer door-to-door services. However, this is the most expensive mode of transportation and travellers risk sitting in heavy traffic during peak hours.


The distance from Schiphol Airport to the city centre is 9 km, since it is located in Haarlemmermeer; that means an average trip time of about 20 – 25 minutes (if there’s no traffic jam).




We recommend passengers to only board registered and licensed taxis, since instead they could be victim of a scam; refuse unsolicited rides from suspicious drivers. You’ll easily identify registered taxis by the roof lights displaying the name of the operator and their blue number plates.


Official taxis must have turned on the taximeter. We ought you to ask for the printed receipt in case they driver doesn’t handle it to you (they are obliged to give it to you) in case of complaint.




At Amsterdam Airport the taxi rank is located outside the main entrance of arrivals and train station level, in front of Schiphol Plaza.
