Taxi fares can vary a lot between countries, cities and companies. These taxis both operate in Stockholm; the left one twice as costly as the right one.

A taxicab, taxi or cab is, in most cases, a comfortable method for door-to-door transport. While taxis often are an expensive way of getting around, in low-income countries with bad public transportation, hiring a taxi for a whole day of sightseeing can be a practical option, even for daytrips around a region.

If you speak the local language, a conversation with the driver can give inside information of the neighbourhood, not provided by guidebook.
