Continuing from the previous post where I talked about how you can plan a trip to Shimla; in this post, I will provide some details on taxi rates in Shimla. This will include renting a taxi in Shimla for local sightseeing; as well as for either reaching Shimla from a nearby location or rent a taxi from Shimla to another town. Please note that the rates below are approximate figures and not absolute. This is how much a taxi will usually cost but depending upon your own negotiation skills, it could cost a little less even.

Shimla has been and still remains one of the most favorite tourist destinations of our country. This, in my opinion, is one place that receives tourist footfall throughout the year. For more information, please take a look at How to Plan a Trip to Shimla.
There is plenty here to see and please all kinds of people, and that is one reason why planning a vacation in Shimla can probably never go wrong. Finding a taxi for Shimla too is not going to be a difficult task. How much will it cost is you what I will be discussing in this post.
Taxi Rates in Shimla
There are three kinds of taxis available for rent in Shimla. The first one is a hatchback which is mostly always Alto. This is the cheapest one and good if you were traveling in a small group of 2 to 3 people. If you would, however, opt for a Sedan then Etios and Dzire too will be available. For a group of 4 to 6 people, you can rent an SUV like Innova, Xylo, or Sumo.
If you were more than 6 people, you will then have to rent two different cabs which will definitely be a costly affair. In that case, a good option to consider would be Tempo Traveller which will cost just slightly more than a taxi but way less than two taxis. I will provide the rates for Tempo Travellers as well.
Shimla Taxi Rates
The rates below as I mentioned are approximate figures. You can try to negotiate the price down depending on the number of days you were hiring it for. A better way to get a cheap taxi would be to directly talk to a driver rather than a travel agency or tour agent.
