Taxi Rates in Shimla – Shimla Taxi Rates

by Vargis.Khan

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 to rent a taxi from Shimla to another town. Please note that the rates below are an approximate figure 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; despite the fact that it has commercialized a lot in recent years and is slowly turning more into a residential city more than a tourist spot. 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. The most convenient way to travel would, of course, be by your own vehicle but if you cannot do that, then 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 on 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 than 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 of 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 an 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.
