All taxis and most private hire vehicles operating throughout Aberdeen carry taximeters that are calibrated to operate the tariff fees set below. Taxi fares for an Aberdeen taxi are calculated using the meter, however private hire vehicles can offer discounts at their own discretion.

Any journey where the destination is outside of Aberdeen, or any vehicle not fitted with a calibrated meter, must have a pre-negotiated fare before the journey commences.
