"Dishonest Taxi Driver" Transportation Tip by vayastra

Transportation, Cairo: 10 reviews and 5 photos

Taxi in Cairo mostly are negotiable rate before you jump in. Not many taxi that provides the one with argometer. And sometimes when you already deal with certain amount to take you somewhere, they will take you to more traffic route then in the middle of the trip they ask for the raise in excuse that this is gonna a long road and they need extra money for gasoline.

Or some of the taxi driver will return the small changes not with the real amount that you should get. For example, you pay with LE 50 for LE 20 rate of trip, then he should return the change LE 30 to you but then he gives you with small changes and then by the time you count it, he left...apparently he only gives you LE 25 instead LE 30...

Unique Suggestions: Find taxi with meter. Maybe it is more expensive but at least you're not getting faster heart pounding with him.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
