Taxi prices in Brussels
Clear and predictable pricing
The price of a trip varies, but its composition is uniform. Four factors defined by the Brussels-Capital Region come into play:
- The pick-up fare is currently set at € 2.40 by the Region to ensure a baseline revenue for the driver. The night rate, which is applied between 10 pm and 6 am, is set at € 4.40.
- The price per kilometre is € 1.80 for journeys within the Brussels Capital Region (Fare I) and € 2.70 per km for the part of the journey located outside the region (Fare II) ;
- The waiting price is a cost that starts to run when the taxi is stopped at traffic lights or in traffic, when a taxi in Brussels travelling at a speed below 20 km per hour, the price per kilometre is not applied anymore and the meter automatically switches to the rate of € 0.5 per minute
|PICK UP||FARE 1 / km||FARE 2 / km||WAITING TIME / HOUR|
|From 6am to 10pm||2.40 €||1.80 €||2.70 €||30.0 €|
|From 10pm to 6am||4.40 €||1.80 €||2.70 €||30.0 €|
Neither the driver nor the passenger can manually change the price of the trip. Official licensed taxi meters are always on-board the vehicles. Once the passenger arrived at destination, she/he has the ability to ask for the taxi meter receipt that contains the details of the trip. It can be used to validate the price the journey and/or used as expense note.
