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

Taxis in Frankfurt

There is something for everyone in Frankfurt, Germany’s financial capital and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s hometown. Frankfurt offers modernity but also cosiness, and you can spend time exploring the high-rise architecture downtown or you can wander through the many world-class museums in the city. Getting around by taxi is a piece of cake with Frankfurt’s easy to spot government-regulated taxis. If you don’t pre-book your ride, the fare is metered, and you can catch a taxi from one of the taxi ranks in the city or you can hail one from the street.

How to get a Taxi in Frankfurt

Multiple companies offer taxi services in Frankfurt, and all official Frankfurt taxis are cream coloured with a taxi sign on the roof of the vehicle. You can readily get a ride from one of the taxi ranks in the city or you can hail a taxi from the street. You can also call one of the local taxi companies to request that a driver picks you up, or you can pre-book your ride online with one of those companies.

Book your Frankfurt Taxi Transfer in Advance

If you book your Frankfurt taxi in advance, you can save yourself some stress and some time, and you can better budget for your transfer with a flat-rate fare. If the weather is iffy, you can relax inside until your driver arrives at the time you set, and then you can enjoy a comfortable trip to your destination. To ensure you get the best service with an English-speaking driver at a competitive rate, consider pre-booking your ride with Welcome Pickups.

Tips for your taxi in Frankfurt

  1. More and more drivers are starting to accept payments by card. However, as that’s not the case for all drivers, if you want to pay by card, ask if you can do so before beginning your ride.
  2. Many taxi companies have apps that you can download to your smartphone to make requesting a ride and paying ahead easy.
  3. Tipping your driver is at your discretion. If you had great service, you may consider leaving a tip of around 10%.

Frankfurt Taxi Safety and Complaints

Taxis in Frankfurt are the safest mode of transportation. Just like you would do anywhere in the world, you may want to double-check the route to your destination in advance, so that your driver doesn’t take the “scenic route” to drive up the fare, and you should exercise the normal amount of caution. If an issue arises, be sure to record the taxi number and keep your receipt; you can then file a complaint with the taxi company you used or report any incidents to the local police. The company’s phone number would be on the receipt, posted on the taxi, or can be found on the company’s website.

Frequently asked questions

Do Frankfurt taxis take credit cards?

Some taxis do accept credit cards, but not all drivers are yet equipped for payment by card. If you want to use your card to pay, communicate your preference with the driver before embarking on your journey.

How do I call a Frankfurt taxi?

There are a number of Frankfurt taxi companies, you can call and you can choose depending on your needs and their offering. Keep in mind that to request a taxi over the phone additional fees may apply. Alternatively, you can catch a ride from one of the taxi ranks in the city, hail a taxi from the street, or book your transfer in advance with a top-rated service provider like Welcome Pickups that guarantees no hidden fees.

Are taxis in Frankfurt expensive?

The cost of your Frankfurt taxi can add up if you are travelling a greater distance, but if you are making a quick trip, the fare is reasonable – especially if you can split it between your fellow travellers. Depending on where you’re trying to get to, taking the train in Frankfurt can get you from one station to the next quicker and perhaps cheaper than a taxi, but you may have to do some navigating and plenty of walking to get to your final destination, so it may be worth opting for a cab instead.
