Taxis : guidelines

The special equipment in a licensed taxi comprises:

  • the illuminated “Taxi Parisien” sign on the roof of the taxi
  • a display meter showing the cost of the journey
  • a notice on the rear left window with the regulations, fares and the registration number of the vehicle
  • a plate fixed to the front right-hand wing of the vehicle bearing the licence number 

Attention! Anyone claiming to be a taxi driver who does not have a specially-equipped vehicle is illegal.
  
You can take a taxi :

  • by hailing one in the street (it is free if the sign on the roof is lit up and green)
  • at a taxi rank
  • by calling one of the main taxi firms
  • by booking one online (but watch out for fraudulent websites on which the following information may be lacking: a legal notice, terms and conditions of sale, and a clear description of the service provider).

Note: Taxis must accept payment by credit card, whatever the price of the journey, and you can ask the taxi driver for an invoice.
