Several taxi companies cover Bordeaux. In general, you have to book your taxi by yourself. If you need to order a taxi, we advise you to contact your hotel or come to see us at the congress welcome desk. The cost of a taxi ride is rather expensive in Bordeaux. Please also note that if you order a taxi the payment clock will start when the taxi is on the way to pick you up (so you will see already some charges).
