Taxi stands can be found near major hotels and next the Drama theatre just outside Old Town, but grabbing a taxi on the street, especially those parked in Old Town, is the best way to get ripped off. Always check the prices first, which should posted on the taxi’s right rear window. Taxis typically charge a starting fee and begin racking up the kilometre charges immediately. When in doubt, you can agree on a price to your destination with the driver before you get in. Ordering a taxi by phone is always the best strategy, as you’ll avoid the dishonest taxis that prey on tourists. Note that the second (short) telephone numbers listed here will work from all Estonian fixed and mobile lines, but if you're calling from a foreign mobile, you need to dial the regular seven-digit number. Here is a list of taxi companies along with their daytime base fares and per-kilometre rates. Night time rates can be about 20% more.
