Taxi company for transportation from airport to hotel

We are arriving in Amsterdam May 8 at 11 a.m. and would like to book transportation from airport to our hotel. I realize taking the train would be cheaper, but with our luggage, we would feel more comfortable with a taxi.

When we visited London , we booked with a taxi company ahead of time. Is there a recommendation anyone has for a company in Amsterdam? I have reviews of the connexion airport shuttle - but they weren't very positive.

Thank you

Just walk outside and take a cab. No worries, no hassle about booking or finding the driver.

I read somewhere that taxi drivers were paid by the hour and seem to be reputable as to not attempting to take the longest route, is that correct?

Hi -

I don't know about being paid by the hour but they are reputable. We have never had a problem and I've been here now for over 15 years. We ALWAYS take a cab to and from the airport.

Enjoy!! MMK

Also never been ripped off from the airport. connexxion cab drivers are paid by the company not by the fare. Maybe some others are too but have never noticed any price difference.

Taxi-electric have fixed fares and if they happen to have a cab waiting after a drop off then you get a special rate. Otherwise they charge as per this

taxielectric.nl/schiphol-airport/schiphol-pr… so 45 euros to Banks Mansion but a regular cab will be around the same unless it hits really bad traffic which I doubt at 11am
