Kingsday 27 April 2022

Due to the many road closures in and around Amsterdam during Kingsnight and Kingsday it is not possible to pre-book your taxi between April 26th 4pm and April 28th 10am.

We advise you to either contact our call centre during this period or to book your taxi via our app or to book via whatsapp (send the word “taxi” to 020 7777777). This way we can set a time and location to pick you up in Amsterdam. Click here to see the map with road closures.

We wish you a very pleasant Kingsday!

Why TCA?

Joining TCA has many advantages. The red-and-black TCA taxi sign is the most recognisable one in Amsterdam and gives you access to all taxi ranks in Amsterdam, plus the exclusive TCA ranks. Approximately 50% of our drivers’ turnover comes from the fares acquired at these taxi ranks. The other 50% is earned by the rides ordered and distributed at TCA. And we do more.

  • A TCA taxi sign on loan
  • Administrative support (e.g. handling of credit and debit card transactions, processing and settlement of rides on corporate accounts)
