If you’re visiting Oslo on a budget, definitely think twice before you take a cab. The Norwegian capital has the most expensive taxi fares in the world, with a typical three-mile ride during the daytime costing $32. That’s over three times as much as London, according to the UBS Prices and Earnings report.
For the same amount of money, you could actually travel for 41 miles in a cab in Cairo. Kiev and New Delhi are even cheaper, coming to just $1.59 and $1.54 respectively for a three-mile trip. Taking a cab over the same distance in New York City would cost $11.67.
