Standard Venice water taxi rates are dependent upon distance traveled, time of day, number of passengers and day of the week. Typical rates as of 2015 include a 13-euro initial charge, 1.80 euros for every minute traveled, and a 10-euro night supplement or 5.90-euro Sunday and holiday supplement.
Water taxis are also frequently used for travel from center city Venice to the Venice Marco Polo International Airport. The rate to and from the airport is typically between 100 and 110 euros, and the rate to and from the train station is approximately 65 euros as of 2015. Water taxis are more expensive than public airport transportation, but they are also faster because tourists do not have to walk to their hotel or transfer to a vaporetto to complete the trip.
