Because people are using their private cars, there are no taxi signs. So, be sure that you get into the right car. If you are not sure, call the drivers number, he should have his phone with him.
HOW TO ORDER ABC TAXI?
I always use ABC taxi and most of the time it has been working well. You call the company and they call you back. So don’t worry when they hang on you when you call there.
They ask where you want the car to come and where you want to go. After they tell you how long it will take to get the car. It usually comes in 10 minutes. After the order has gone through, the driver calls you and asks you details plus he tells when he is coming.
This is sometimes a little problematic because not all the drivers speak good English (most of them do). I don’t speak Arabic myself, but I have survived. All this means you have to have an Egyptian subscription for calling (more about getting sim-card here). If you don’t, forget ABC taxi and use other options. Orange taxis work as well.

WHY I USE ABC TAXI IN HURGHADA?
I use ABC taxi because they have new cars and most of them have seat belts. Seat belts are actually the main reason, why I use ABC-taxi. When I’m travelling alone, I can use orange taxis, but with my baby, I want to use a car with seat belts, because of the safety reasons. You will notice, that traffic here is crazy.
ABC TAXI FARES
Prices are a little bit higher than orange taxis, but at least you don’t need to fight about it and you can trust their meters (usually). Even with ABC taxi its not a bad idea to check the meter before leaving. Now starting price is 7.50 Egyptian pounds plus 1.75 Egyptian pounds Le/Km, but it may change.
ABC-taxi has a facebook page, where you find more information and contact details. There are also other taxi companies in Hurghada, but as I said earlier I haven’t used them myself. I’ve heard good feedback about Fawry taxi company.
