"Taxi drivers..." Amman Warnings Or Dangers Tip by SwedishViking

Amman Warnings and Dangers: 17 reviews and 12 photos

Some taxi drivers tell you that the hotel you just mentioned and wanted to go to is a "no good hotel, mister".
They make up lies about the hotel; it has bed bugs and dirty sheets.
This is all lies because the driver gets a commission from a specific hotel if he drives you there...
Don't fall for this old trick! Tell him to drive to the hotel you want or take another cab. When this happened to me I lie back and told him that I definitely had to go the hotel I mentioned because I had to meet up with my friends there...
Don't forget that it's your trip and you stay where ever you want to stay!
