Due to the pandemic, most taxi companies stopped pre-selling of vouchers online and closed their sales stand at the airport of Riga, plus reduced the number of cars during lock-down. Due to this fact, it will be risky to rely on having a taxi upon your arrival in Riga. We, therefore, suggest you look into the possibilities below well in advance.
EENA recommends the most reliable taxi service from and back to the airport: Baltic Taxi and Red Cab
Baltic Taxi: +371 2000 8500 www.baltictaxi.com
Red Cab: +371 6000 8383
Pre-order your taxi well in advance through the application Booking a taxi – RedCab
TRANSFER AIRPORT – CITY CENTER
The trip by taxi from Riga Airport to Old Town is really fast – it takes around 30 minutes (in rush hours around 45 minutes). In order to take a cab, please agree first on the price of the trip with the taxi driver in order to avoid unpleasant surprises. The fixed price straight to the city center can vary from 20 EUR to 25 EUR .
TRANSFER RADISSON HOTEL – AIRPORT
Try to arrange the transfer back to the airport well ahead of your departure. Purchase the RedCab voucher at the Radisson hotel reception and ask the reception staff to order you a taxi for a specific hour.

Uber is not available in Latvia. However, you can use Bolt which is a ride-hailing app for requesting a fast and affordable ride. To request your ride, simply download the free app for iPhone on the App Store, or Google Play for Android phones. More info on www.bolt.eu/en/cities/riga
