If you are travelling to an English speaking country for business or pleasure, you will likely use a taxi. Here are some useful words and phrases to help you enjoy a smooth ride:

Asking someone to call you a taxi

Would you call me a taxi, please? I’m going to _____________ (your destination).
OR
Could you give me the number for a taxi service?

Calling a taxi yourself
When the dispatch operator answers you will hear something like “Circle Taxi. How can I help you?” or “Yellow Taxi. Where are you located?”

You will need to provide the address of where you are (your location) and where you are going (your destination).

For example:
Can I get a taxi to the airport? I’m at the Crown Hotel.

Questions for a taxi dispatch operator:
Can I schedule a taxi pick up for 5am tomorrow?
Is there a flat rate to the airport from here?
What will it cost me to go from my hotel to the airport?
How long is the wait for a taxi right now?

Flagging down a taxi
In some locations you don’t need to call a taxi. You can just wave your hands at one as it drives close to you. This is called “flagging” or “hailing” a taxi down. Stand close to the road and wave your arm out. An empty taxi will pull over for you. Many people get in the back of a taxi instead of the front passenger seat. A taxi without its light on is likely already on a taxi run for someone else.

Advice

# Make sure the driver turns on the meter after you get in the taxi.
# If the driver seems to be driving in circles, write down his registration number and call the taxi company later.
# Most drivers are honest, so relax and talk with the driver about the city.
# Add a tip equal to about 10% to 15% of the total cost. Give a higher tip only if the driver really gave you good service.
