Radio taxi

In Rome, usually you can not stop a taxi directly on the street. You must either order it or you have to go to a taxi stand.

Taxis in Rome start to calculate the travel costs from the reservation. Once the taxi is booked, the driver turns on his taximeter and starts driving. If he arrives to pick you up, you will already find an amount on the taximeter due to this drive. This amount can also be quite substantial depending on the traffic situation and the place of departure of the driver and must be paid in any case. For radio taxi reservation a fixed amount of 4 Euro is charged.

Also if you use the app Free Now, you have to pay for the taxi to the place of pickup.

Fraudulent tricks

Whether Rome, Istanbul or New York, fraudulent taxi drivers can unfortunately be found everywhere. I also met Italians who were ripped off in Rome.

Important! Take only regular white taxis. They are distinguished by a taxi sign as well as an identification mark. Make a note of the identification mark! It consists of a name and a number, for example Moon 11.

A popular trick is to spend a 50 euro bill for a tens. You give the driver 50 euros and he claims you gave him 10. You pay better with credit card and tell the driver before the start of the journey. Check the amount of the credit card payment before signing the receipt or entering the PIN.
