General tips and advice:

– Only take the taxi if they have a meter and it’s on.
– You usually cannot negotiate about the price, it’s fixed when the taximeter is on.
– Some of the taxi drivers can drive pretty aggressively. You can ask them to slow down if you’re not comfortable with it.
– They do not use GPS in the cars and often do they not know what the streets are called so use point of interest, like a hotel, bar, shop or/and point on a map.
– Some drivers do not speak english at all so remember to be well prepared, but they are often friendly and nice.
– Remember to say the exact location of your destination, since it can mean a detour if you just say the name of the nearest city or town center.
