Taxis In Benidorm
The official taxis in Benidorm are white. They have a light on top and, if it is green, they are open for business. You can hail them (port your hand up or whistle!).
You can call them and their number is 660294491. If you are dialling from a UK mobile then call +44 660294491.
There is a standing charge and this depends on the time of day. This is usually 3 -5 Euros which is quite a lot really. Charges per mile/minute vary but, as a rough guide, I reckon on a 10 Euro charge from one end of Benidorm to another.
If you are going to Alicante Airport then there’s a standard charge which changes throughout the season but plan for north of 80 Euros. Contact us if you want a different option and a cheaper fee!
Occasionally you may be approached by people who say they’ll take you to…. wherever… as they’re ‘on their way.’ Just DO NOT get in their car. Chances are you’ll be taken to the outskirts and fleeced.
