Taxis can be an expensive choice of transport, particularly for students, but sometimes you may need to take one. Of course, rates vary between companies and you can also expect to pay higher prices during later hours of heavy traffic. Some well-known taxi companies in Maastricht are Taxi Frenske and Marzouk taxi service. Check out their websites for contact details and to book a ride.
There are a number of illegal taxi companies operating in Maastricht. Although these may appear cheaper, it is not wise to take one. Illegal drivers do not have a permit or insurance. This means that if something happens (i.e. a traffic accident), you could face a number of problems.
