Instead of using public transportation or bicycles, it’s also possible to get a taxi in Rotterdam. This might not be the cheapest way of getting around, but it’s comfortable and quick.

How to get a taxi in Rotterdam
It’s possible to stop a taxi on the streets of Rotterdam by raising your arm. Before you hail them, check whether the sign on the roof is lit up, because that means they are available. Especially at night there are plenty of taxis that wait at nightclubs and bars. It’s easy to recognize them by their blue license plate and sign on their rooftop.
If you cannot find a taxi on the street, there are also several taxi ranks in the city where you can find a taxi. Here you can lookup where there are taxi ranks in Rotterdam (in Dutch, sorry!).
Of course it’s also possible to call a taxi or make an online reservation. Below we provide the contact information of multiple taxi companies in Rotterdam.
