"ESTABLISH THE PRICE FIRST!!" Taxis Tip by 22scootergal

Taxis, Athens: 26 reviews and 7 photos

Taxi drivers are hustlers! They will try to rush you into
their car, then make small talk about the relatives they
have in whatever country you come from, then rip you
off when you arrive. ALWAYS ask "how much to___"
If he tries to change the price when you arrive due to
traffic or whatever, stand firm. If that doesn't work, get
out a piece of paper and start writing down his vehicle #
and license # then threaten to call the authorities. He
will then jump into his car and drive away. TRUE STORY.

Address: Athens
