Zürich Taxi's calculate the world's highest rates
According to a new poll, taxis in Zurich are the most costly in the whole wide range. Taxis in the heart of Switzerland costs you more than other big capitals such as Paris, London and New York. Conducted by the German strategic and market consulting firm Simon Kucher & Partners and published by the 20 Minutes Schweizer Zeitung on Wednesday, the report found that Zurich's taxis outperformed those in 17 other large international destinations.
One three-kilometer cab trip in the heart of Switzerland will bring you back 17.40 CHF (19.17 USD), of which six CHF is the basic fee, which will be raised to 3.80 CHF per kilometer thereafter. Its price is more than six CHF higher than in the second most costly Amsterdam town, where the trip of the same length cost 11.24 CHF (12.38 USD).
Other large city cabs were significantly lower, among them London (10.77 CHF/$11.87), Berlin (10.66 CHF/$11.75), Vienna (9.80 CHF/$10.80), Sydney (8.49 CHF/$9.35), Paris (6.95 CHF/$7.66) and New York (6.38 CHF/$7). In spite of the high prices, Zurich cabbies don't make good money, according to the Zurich Taxiverband. Approximately 45 to 50 per cent of the fare goes into the cost of operating the cabs, said spokeswoman Liz Spengler to 20 minutes.

The prices for the same route in Geneva and Lausanne are similar at 15.80 and 15.20 Swiss francs respectively. The fare for a trip of 3 km according to the survey:
Estimated taxi fares from Brisbane Airport to the surfing heaven - Brisbane Forum
Hello everybody, I'm going to the surfer's paradise in June and land at Brisbane Airport. Most of my problem with them is that they very early pick me up and quote me for my flight back to Brisbane Domestic Airport at 9.50 am to pick me up at 4.30 am... so I want to explore taking taxis with me when the price is about $100 per trip for taxis......... my problem is.
Guess I would only need a cab to get me from the surf heaven at 7am (2 hrs transportation + 1 hrs before departure). Do I need to reserve a cab in advance? Do I need to do this? But is it simple to stop a cab in the surf heaven to get to the international airports?
Take the Airtrain and then a cab from Nerang railway to your accommodation. A lot of riders would not be willing to take the fare because it consumes a large part of their time.
