Taxi Services in Qatar

Find out about the taxi services available and how to book...

Like the buses, the taxi service in Qatar is overseen by Mowasalat, under the Karwa banner. The distinctive green fleet consists of modern air-conditioned vehicles. The service has a local reputation for being over-stretched, with not enough cars available to meet demand at peak times, which can lead to difficulties when ordering or hailing a taxi. The operator claims to be in the process of expanding the fleet to address the problem.

How to call a taxi

Pick-ups can be arranged by calling 4458 8888, but there may be a long wait for the vehicle to arrive. It is permitted to hail a cab from the street, but again this can be difficult at busy times. Cabs also congregate for pick-ups at malls and hotels, where queues form awaiting taxis, and this is often the most successful method of securing a ride.

Fares

All cabs are metered. There is an initial charge of QR 4, and then a rate of QR 1.20 per kilometre during the day and QR 1.80 per Km. The latter rate is also charged for longer distance journeys. Telephone bookings add an extra QR 4 to the fare.

  • Special six-seater taxis run by the same company operate from the airport. These have a flat rate of QR 18.
  • There is also a Karwa limousine service, with higher rates. The base rate for a standard limousine is QR 20, and then QR 2 per kilometre (day and night).
