How many points do I need for a taxi ride?
The points you need for a taxi ride depend on the length of your journey. Whim always shows you how many points you’ll need for your journey, after which you confirm the order if you’re happy with it. This means you’ll never run out of points mid-journey.
The examples on the Whim website refer to taxi rides during the day. Is it possible to take a taxi in the evenings and weekends?
Whim prices are based on normal taxi fares in Finland
- Starting fare weekdays from 6 AM to 8 PM €5,90
- Saturdays and bank holiday eves from 6 AM to 6 PM €5,90
- Other times €9
This means that starting fares affect the amount of points you’ll use.
You may take a taxi at any time, and for example, during the night you’ll use a few more points.
Can I use Whim for any taxi in the capital region?
For the time being, you may order taxis from Lähitaksi and Taksi Helsinki through Whim.
Can I pay with Whim if I grab a cab at a taxi rank?
Unfortunately, this isn’t possible just yet.
We’re working on a solution to this to make traveling with Whim even more convenient for you in the future.
How does Whim work in the taxi?
When you order a taxi through Whim, the app will show you the estimated arrival time of your taxi, and you can even follow its approach on a map.
Once the taxi arrives, all you need to do is jump in, say hi to the driver and enjoy the ride.
The driver already knows where you’re going and your journey is paid for.
In case the driver isn’t familiar with Whim yet, it might be necessary to mention that billing information can be found on the taxi payment/booking system.
I ordered a taxi through Whim. Can other passengers travel with me?
You can share* your Whim taxi journeys with other people at no extra cost.
If you need a minivan, that is fine, too, just choose your preferred taxi type from the order list!
* NOTE: You must be along for the ride as Whim is a personal service and is non-transferable!
I ordered a taxi by accident. Can I still cancel it?

I ordered a taxi but something went wrong. Did I lose the Whim points I spent on the order?
