Taxis go everywhere in Finland. The meter starts at about €5 daytime and about €7.70 evenings and weekends. The price per-kilometer increases with the number of passengers. In cities people generally go to one of the numerous taxi stands and take the first one available. You can hail a cab, but most are on radio call. Most taxi drivers take credit cards. Tipping is unnecessary; if you want to leave something, round up to the nearest euro. A receipt is a kuitti.
Taxi Center (0100/0700 €1.15 plus 16 cents per 10 seconds plus local charge; 0100/06000 same charges apply; for advance bookings. www.taksihelsinki.fi.)
