Taxis in the City come in all colours but have the distinctive white sign on the roof or inside with “Taxi Parisien” embossed; if available for hire the sign will be illuminated. There are more than 800 taxi ranks in Paris but you can also hail a taxi in the streets of Paris as long as you are not within 50 meters of a Rank.
The rates are government regulated and a fare tariff is normally displayed in the left rear window, and all taxis apply the same rates. Taxi driver cannot refuse your fare because of the distance of Travel but can refuse if you are drunk or the destination is outside of the Paris Taxi area. For this sort of longer trips better idea would be to use car hire Paris services. This would give you more autonomy and reduce the cost as well.
