Among all German cities, Berlin actually has the largest Taxicab fleet: over 7,500 cabs. Taxis can be hailed from one of the many Taxi Stands, or you can call to Order/Pre-Order a Taxi for a distinct location and time. The English language taxi service hotline is +49 30 20 20 21 22 0, and on request, the order can be given to a taxi driver who speaks English.
Taxi fares in Berlin are very reasonable, and you can use the Taxi Tariff Calculator to estimate the cost of your trip. Taxi rides from the airport tend to be slightly more expensive than a regular ride. Most Taxi drivers prefer being paid in cash, but some do accept credit cards. There should be a sticker on one of the windows indicating that credit cards are accepted, however, it is best to confirm this with your driver prior to the start of your ride. Tips may be given at your discretion, and the standard rate is 10-20% of your fare.S-Bahn Berlin (Train)
