Taxis, Warsaw: 16 reviews and 5 photos

When you arrive in Warsaw and there is no one to meet you at the airport the first people to welcome you will be the drivers of private taxis. In fact, you will probably get so many offers of their services that you will find it hard to choose one. Don't be tempted and ignore them. Many of them will just try to rip you off or take you on a tour of Warsaw when all you want is to get to your hotel. Walk to the official taxi-rank or come up to the stand of Sawa Taxi and ask them to send a taxi for you. The difference in what you will pay can amount to a hundred zloties or more. A ride to the centre shouldn't cost more than about 40 zloties. Always ask in advance how much you will have to pay. Better write the name of the place you are going to or the driver might later say that he misunderstood you.
Beware also when your hotel orders a taxi for you. Don't get into the first taxi you see - dishonest taxi-drivers often lurk there too. Ask the people at the reception to write the name of the firm and the number of the taxi for you and don't get into any other one. Forewarned is forearmed.

    The tip was written back in 2008. I wonder if you know what the aproximate cost from the airport to the old city these days is.

    Sawa Taxi - Best I`ve ever tried in Warsaw. They are everywhere – Chopin Airport Modlin and Central Railway station. Always on time, clean cars and polite drivers.
