THE PORTO TAXI
Taxis in the city of Porto are, normally, comfortable and well-equipped cars. There are two types of colors that make them identifiable: black with green rooftop and beige, in both cases they have an identification plate on the roof (Taxi), this plate also serves to inform if the taxi is free (green light on), busy (with a number that corresponds to the fare type) or out of service (lights completely off).
WHERE CAN YOU GET A TAXI
Calling a taxi is extremely easy, you can ask for one at the hotel reception, go to a taxi stand (there are many in the city especially in busy areas) or if you see one with the green light on, just raise your hand.
At the taxi stand, you should always use the first in line. If you want to book a taxi, you can do it by phone, online or use an app.

TAXI TRAVELING COST
Traveling by taxis is not cheap but if you want a "door to door" transportation service this is your best choice.
When you get inside the taxi you are already paying 3,25€, at night (21:00 to 6:00) the rates are higher, if you are carrying a big luggage there's an additional cost.
The taxis must have a well visible taximeter that displays the amount that will be charged (don't forget that the taxis will charge by km and by time).
As a consumer, you are entitled to ask for a receipt, keep it in case you need to call the taxi company.
