Practical tips /
Personal security /
In a taxi
• Keep the number of a local licenced taxi firm handy - never use an unlicensed company or private drivers.
Be aware that some private drivers that stop in the street may be cheaper but are not licensed, and are therefore not as safe as taxis that you arrange by telephone.
• Agree the fare by phone before you get into the taxi in order to avoid confrontation at the end of your journey.
• Always sit in the back.
• It is quite acceptable to chat with the driver, but do not give away any personal information.
• Have your cash ready and leave the car before you pay the driver.
