- Daytime fares: 3.40 euros
- Public holiday: 5.50 euros
- Overnight fares: 6.60 euros
- Taxis departing from airports: from 13.30 euros

Taxi from the airport to the city centre
Taking a public taxi from the airport has the disadvantage of not being aware of the cost in advance as the price is calculated by the meter and often at peak times you risk spending much more money than you budgeted for. On the other hand, by pre-booking your transfer to the airport, that is by booking a taxi in Milan with Taxileader.net, you will be welcomed directly in the arrivals area inside the airport and for any airport: Malpensa, Orio Al Serio or Linate the transfer will always be at a fixed price and will be locked in when you book.
