27th June 2017 No Comments

Travel SOS Birmingham looks at the world’s most expensive taxi prices.

Oslo, Norway

Top of the list is the largest city and capital of Norway.  Previously been judged as the second most costly average living expenses in the world, a five-mile taxi journey in Oslo averages almost £42. With those rates, we are surprised it managed only fourth position as the costliest place to live in the world.

So, if you are visiting Oslo and are on a budget, we would recommend you think twice before taking a taxi.

Zurich, Switzerland

The largest city in Switzerland, with an estimated population of over one million, Zurich is well known as a transportation hub, especially in relation to air and rail travel.

Accepted as being one of the world’s most liveable cities, and one with a high quality of life Zurich ranks very highly in citizen satisfaction amongst many areas such as housing, employment and public safety.

A five-mile cab ride in Zurich averages around £37, that is over £7 a mile.

Auckland, New Zealand

Auckland has been named one of the world’s most liveable cities.  IT serves as the economic centre of New Zealand and is the home of many multinational businesses and financial institutions.

With its economic importance and high quality of life, Auckland cab drivers cash in on passengers looking to get around the city for work.

The average mile rate is £5.18


Milan, Italy

Having one of the largest economies of any city in Europe and being home to Borsa Italiana, Italy’s main stock exchange you will find Milan the home of many major banks, international businesses and media outlets

With so much based in Milan, it is an expensive city to get by in.  With its rich culture, history and high-end businesses taxi drivers are perfectly placed to cash in on fares.

Compared to Oslo it may be a bargain but taxi fares in Milan are amongst the most expensive in the world.
