In the Netherlands it is not customary to hail a taxi.But it happens somtimes. To take a taxi you go to a taxi rank, of which there are many. (There is an
environmental advantage to this: taxis don’t constantly drive around looking for
customers). In your hotel, restaurants, shops, etc. you can ask them to order you
a taxi, or you can call (020) 677 77 77.
Taxis are of good quality, but relatively expensive.
