New taxi act = new prices. What does this mean for you as a consumer?
As a consumer, you need to keep your eyes open when ordering a cab. The price of your taxi ride can now vary by as much as 61% at certain times of the day. That means it can be quite confusing for a consumer to fathom and compare the various prices on the websites of taxi companies.
So we took a close look at the prices of the two biggest taxi companies in the Greater Copenhagen area, compared them with our own prices, day by day, hour by hour, and devised a graph to provide consumers with the big picture. You can see the price comparison below. It shows, for example, that:
- At the weekend, on average TAXA is 14% cheaper than its competitors
- During peak hours, on average TAXA is 16% cheaper than its competitors
- On weekdays, on average TAXA is 21% cheaper than its competitors

TAXA 4x35 is the green line and is cheapest 24/7. At the weekend (from 6.00 pm on Friday to 4.00 am on Monday) our prices are just a little lower when compared to one of our competitors (the yellow line). The other competitor (red line) is significantly more expensive, especially at the weekend and on weekday evenings. On weekday evenings, both competitors are significantly more expensive than TAXA.
The price comparison is based on the current prices on the websites of the taxi companies on 10 September 2018. The price comparison is also based on a ride of 10 km and 12 minutes, which is the Danish Traffic, Construction and Housing Authority’s definition of a standard ride.
