Taxi Scammers Reviews
Meter Must!! Aug 25, 2011
Hey there, this is just a warning to all tourists travelling in Fiji by taxi. This particularly applies to Nadi taxis.
Always ask the driver to put on and display his fare meter. A lot of taxis, especially those that you may catch at the airport will hide or simply not turn them on and charge you a horrendous price to get to your destination!(it's happened to me and i'm a local)
Do not be fooled by their sob stories or explanations, it is the law in Fiji that taxi's display their meters for passengers, if he does not, i do advise you to just walk out without paying, as they are breaking the law themselves.
This applies mainly to short distance trips, withing town limits, for longer trips (e.g. between towns) there is usually a set price.
