Try not to take a taxi on Central Station or on any of the big public ranks as Leidseplein. The drivers of these cars don’t know their way around, yes I know it’s no advertising for a city like ours. Hailing one at the street is difficult. If you need one, call TCA at 020-7777777. These chauffeurs are reliable and know their way around. The good news: Schiphol taxi’s at the airport rank are all qualified and registered. More info on taxi’s.
