Rates, Fares, and Fees

What you need to know about the cost of taking a taxi on Andros is that the rates have been preset by the government so you'll not be able to negotiate for a lower fare. Passengers pay $3(USD) to get into the cab, then $0.40(USD) for every quarter mile traveled. These rates are based on two passenger occupancy, and you'll pay an extra $3(USD) per person if more people are traveling with you. You may store two pieces of luggage in the trunk for free, but anything beyond that will cost extra.

Often, people who get along with their drivers will hire them to pick them up later on and take them on a tour of a particular area. These prices should be discussed with your driver, as these prices can be decided outside of the set rates. Whether you take a quick ride or do hire your driver for a tour, make sure to set aside an extra 15 percent or more for a tip.

Friendly drivers and reasonable prices make taxis a great option for local transportation when you're staying on Andros. Keep this in mind as an alternative option, even if you do decide to rent a car.
