Taxis are a safe and fast way to get around Vienna. After the start-up fee of €2,50, fares are about €1 per kilometre with €0,40 for waiting. At night between 23:00 and 06:00, start-up is €2,60 and rates are around €1,30 per kilometre. Taxis can be hailed on the street, ordered in advance (€2,50 extra) or taken from a taxi station in the city centre (€1,25 extra). At night it's best to call for a cab. When taking a taxi to the airport, ask for the Pauschaltariff rate of €33 to avoid paying €12 on top of the metre fare for the return trip.
