Net Safety Score

We’ve introduced a metric indicating how safe travellers feel when using our services during the COVID-19 pandemic. After every ride, we ask each traveller to leave a review.

  • 20 minute gap between transfers

    Following each ride, our drivers have at least 20 minutes to thoroughly clean the surfaces of the car and ventilate the cabin.

  • Regular Car Sanitisation

    Our drivers thoroughly sanitise and disinfect cars according to Welcome Safety Protocol

  • Contactless ride

    When you book, you can request to have zero contact with the driver during the transfer with just one click. In this case, the driver won’t help you with your luggage or shake hands.

  • Sanitiser in every car

    We provide hand sanitisers and hand wipes for all our travellers. Our drivers have their own sanitiser, which they use before and after every ride

Tirana Taxi Tips

  1. Some taxis accept bank card payments, and others do not. It is always recommended to ask your driver beforehand.
  2. Tipping your Tirana taxi driver is not customary, although always appreciated. Most travellers round up their end fare or offer a 10% tip.
  3. Make sure that the taximeter has been turned on, and reset before starting your journey.
  4. There are no price differences for day, night or weekend trips.

Tirana Wheelchair Accessible Taxis

Unfortunately, most Tirana taxi companies cannot accommodate wheelchairs. For that reason, you will need to contact a private taxi company, such as Holiday Taxis to request a wheelchair-accessible ride. It’s best to book this 24 hours in advance to ensure vehicle and driver availability.

If you regrettably encounter a bad taxi experience, you can report your Tirana taxi driver by filing an official complaint directly with the taxi company you travelled with. It is essential to keep your receipt, as it holds valuable information that the company will ask for (travel time, registration, the amount paid, etc.).
