Here's what taxi ride costs around the world

Taxi prices can be very confusing in any given city, so trying to compare all the cities together is complicated.

Here we have given a typical price range of a three-kilometre trip in each destination.

The figures are in price ranges instead of "average" prices because many cities have different prices with each company, or different price structures at night or on weekends.

So the prices below run from cheapest to most expensive, according to a study carried out by priceoftravel.com.

NOTE: The price on the left reflects 'little to no waiting in traffic', while the price on the right reflects 'high-traffic situations' plus 'night or weekend surcharges'.

Petrol prices are based on available data and current market prices could vary.

Taxi fare: $0.90–$1.58 (Rs 48.2-84.7)

City: New Delhi

Country: India

Average price of petrol: Rs 65.64 per litre. However, taxis in New Delhi run on compressed natural gas, which costs Rs 32 per kilogramme.
