Unfortunately, Express Schiphol Taxi Central does not have child seats. The reason for this is, among other things, that the taxi driver can no longer carry out trips with luggage and 4 people, since the child seat takes up space. In addition, a child seat in a taxi is not mandatory. Click here for more information about child seats in a taxi.
By law, you must transport children up to 135 cm in an approved car seat. Because this is not always possible in practice, there are a few exceptions in the law. These exceptions concern transporting children in your own car, in another car, in a taxi and on the bus.
Exception taxi transport
- If there is no car seat in taxis (recognizable by a blue number plate), children from the age of 3 may be transported in the back seat with the seat belt.
- Children younger than 3 years old may be transported ´loose´ in the back seat, for example on your lap.
- Only children taller than 135 cm may be transported in the front passenger seat, of course wearing their seat belt.
