Travel safely with Welcome Pickups
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
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 Geneva
Geneva, despite being known as a major finance and diplomacy hub, has plenty to offer its visitors. Travellers can relax and enjoy the luxury offered in this cosmopolitan city or find adventure in the Alps or Lac Léman (Lake Geneva). Getting around the centre of Geneva is easy by foot or using the tram, but if you have a greater distance to travel, or wobbly legs from having too much fun on the ski slopes, taxis are readily available to get you to where you need to go quickly and comfortably.
Many different companies offer Geneva cab services, and you can effortlessly find a taxi at one of the 60 taxi ranks in the city. You can also hail a taxi from the street, call to request a ride or pre-book your transfer online. Taxi prices are determined by a taximeter unless you pre-book your ride for a set fare.

Tips for your taxi in Geneva
- Most drivers accept credit cards, but it is suggested that you double-check before starting your journey.
- When taking your taxi from the taxi rank, make sure the meter is on and is reset at the start of your ride.
- Tipping is not expected, but if you had great service, you could consider rounding up to the nearest franc or giving your driver 5% of the cost of the fare.
Wheelchair Accessible Taxis in Geneva
Several transfer companies offer wheelchair accessible taxis in Geneva. If you will be needing a ride in an accessible vehicle, some companies request that you book your ride at least 24 hours in advance to ensure vehicle and driver availability. A couple of the companies offering wheelchair-accessible services include Maiandi’Cap and Aloha Trasport Services. Public trams and buses are also accessible in their majority.
Geneva Taxi Safety and Complaints
Geneva taxis are the safest transfer option available, and the city is generally considered perfectly safe as well. When taking a taxi, make sure the meter is reset so you won’t be overcharged and exercise the normal amount of caution you would in any cab. If an issue does arise, be sure to record the taxi number and keep your receipt. That way, if you wish, you can file a complaint directly with the cab company you used. You can find the relevant phone number on your receipt, posted on the taxi, or via the company’s website.
