Taxis at Nice Airport

Taxis are available at Nice Airport and can be found outside both terminals.  The taxi terminals are located at Gate A1 outside Terminal 1, and Gate A3 outside Terminal 2.

Payment is by cash only and you are advised to agree a fare with the driver before you set off.  The driver should start the meter as soon as you start travelling and don’t forget to remind him if he doesn’t.  Minimum fare is €7.  Some fares are standard to regular drop off points and are as below:

Nice Airport to Antibes : €55 day, €65 night

Nice Airport to Cannes : €75 day, €90 night

Nice Airport to Frejus : €165 day, €180 night

Day time fares apply between 7am and 6pm, and night time fares from 6pm to 7am.  Extra charges for luggage may be applicable, best to ask before loading the taxi.

And you will have to pay all applicable motorway toll fees.

Taxis can be one of the more expensive ways of getting to your resort, often trains and buses are cheaper although will take longer.  A private transfer will probably cost you around the same price as a taxi but has the benefits of the driver waiting for you in the arrivals hall of the airport, and you can also pre-book your return to the airport.  You might also find that the cost of a taxi back and forth to the airport will cover the cost of a hire car for the week.

If you think that you have been overcharged by a taxi driver departing the Airport you can write to the airport to complain:  Monsieur le Préfet des Alpes-Maritimes, Direction de la Réglementation et des Libertés Publiques, Bureau de la Circulation, 06286 Nice Cedex 3, FRANCE.
Include a copy of your receipt, and include the taxi number as it appears under the word Taxi on the roof.  A driver found guilty of such an offence may in addition to possible legal sanctions, have his permit to park at the Airport cancelled.  You are not guaranteed a refund over the overcharge.

The number to call for a local Nice city centre taxi is 0033 4 93 13 78 78.
