IT’S COMING HOME: How much on the meter for an iconic black taxi to watch England play Netherlands in Dortmund?

Updated: Jul 9

As England prepares to face the Netherlands in the Euro 2024 semi-final, football fans are exploring various ways to witness the clash at the BVB Stadion in Dortmund. Among the travel options, a taxi journey from London presents a unique and adventurous choice.

The trip spans approximately 375 miles and takes around eight hours of non-stop driving.

The route involves crossing the Channel Tunnel from Folkestone to Calais, then driving through France, then Belgium and into Germany. This direct route leads straight to the heart of Dortmund, offering plenty of time to sample local beverages on the the way.

The metered fare for such a trip is estimated to be between £1,800 and £2,000. However, when shared among six passengers, the cost reduces to about £300 per person.

Cabbies willing to drive such a fare would be most likely willing to cap or agree a fare price before hand. The return leg of the journey could also be heavily negotiated given the dead mileage and time it takes to drive back to England.

The journey isn’t as daft as it may first originally sound with the promise of an unforgettable and unique experience for all. Passengers can enjoy the comfort of a private door-to-door service while avoiding the hassles of airports and train stations. For the driver, it’s an opportunity to provide a unique service that goes beyond the typical fare.
