These are the cities with the world’s cheapest and priciest cab fares.
What you’ll end up paying for a cab can vary greatly from one country to another due to local regulations.
To help travelers get a sense of what they can expect to pay around the globe, U.K. online car dealership Carspring has put together a 2017 Taxi Price Index.
The index breaks down the costs across 80 of the world’s most visited cities and includes the cost of hailing the cab (the initial hire costs), the cost per kilometer, the cost of any waiting time (any period of time where the cab isn’t moving but you still have it for hire), and the fare to take a taxi from the airport to the city center.
Carspring also calculated what the fare would be for a 3-kilometer ride (about 1.86 miles) in each city using data provided both by local cab companies and tourism boards.
Here are the top 10 cities with the most affordable fares when it comes to the rate per kilometer.
