Taxis in Prague, how to avoid to get overcharged! Jan 07, 2013
I am sorry to write this review about a such beautiful city, which is Prague.
This problem has been discussed for many years (along with numerous thieves, who give worthless banknotes to those changing in the streets - never do so in Prague - you can be really sorry as this is illegal).
Unfortunately the authorities haven't found any effective way, how to combat these disgraceful taxi drivers, who try to improve their living standards by cheating and overcharging foreign visitors of Prague.
However, there are ways, how to save your money and not to support the taxi driver mafia.
At the airport you can find boards recommending the companies, which should be reliable for travelling to the city centre. I believe, this is a good tip.
If you are in the city centre, try not to take a taxi in the street, but to call operators of officially licensed taxi companies. They are fine, they speak English and they will tell you even approximately, how much the fare from a point A to a point B will be.
I wish you a nice stay in Prague, and if this review will help you, I will be pleased the most.
