"An oddish phenomenon in Greece" Taxis Tip by csordila
Taxis, Thessaloniki: 2 reviews and 1 photos
As you know it, Greek honesty is beyond question, but it is not applicable sometimes, primarily if you take a taxi. You may not to be persuaded of the honesty of drivers, but it seems, as if something would happen with the honest Greeks when they drive taxi.
Unfortunately, only few of the drivers will charge you with the real fee, or driving in circles, they try to take you on a detour, in order to sack you.
You should always insist to turn on the counter and if it is not any or you are told it does not work, avoid using it, and better take an another taxi.
One more thing you should pay attention, there are day fare and night fare, and many of the drivers like to use the more expensive night rate, day and night.
Taxi fares 2007:
Counter starts at €1.00, fare day/night/km: €0.34/ €0.64
Waiting time €9.10/hour
