DESTINATIONS chile santiago Tourist Information Taxi


To ensure your safety, it is advised that you only travel in authorized taxis and ignore the taxi drivers and representatives that wait in the baggage claim area of Santiago airport. Authorized, metered taxis are all black with yellow roofs. There is a taxi rank outside the main terminal, so pre-booking should generally not be necessary. If you do wish to prebook a taxi with a fixed rate to take you to the city from the airport, you can call Vía Controlada: +56 9 4273 2887 or Taxi Oficial: +56 2601 9880, both operate 24 hours. For longer rides, you can sometimes negotiate flat fares if your negotiation skills in Spanish are confident enough. If you want to avoid hailing a taxi in the street (which is generally safe), most hotels and restaurants will happily call you a taxi too. There is also the option to order an Uber.
