Portugal Warnings and Dangers: 66 reviews and 60 photos

I guess that this is a warning that you might find in many cities all through the world - taxi drivers. Yes, you might find some taxi driver that will drive you through the longest path so that they earn more. In Portugal, all taxis have a taximeter inside the vehicle. To make sure that the driver applies the correct fee, look at the window - taxis have a table there with the prices, which may vary according to the period of the day (night is more expensive) or the day of the week (weekends are more expensive). You will pay an extra fee for putting your luggage on the back of the taxi. But not all taxi drivers will try to earn more money, as many of them are honest people. They have a ID card with their name and number; if you are not satisfied take not of that number and complain about taxi driver.
