Taxi’s In Bucharest In Bucharest there are two types of  cab drivers, ones who work for honest and reliable firms and independent drivers who are looking to extort naive tourists. The trustworthy companies tend to have a big company name and telephone number on the car where as the dubious ones  steal logos from the other established firms and have the phone numbers messily scrawled over the car.

 If you are leaving a restaurant or hotel you are best off asking reception or  a waiter to order you a cab as they are most likely to be using a legitimate company. Avoid using Taxi services that have the names Taxi Bucuresti or Taxi Arsenal displayed on the car.  Any Taxi tariff charging  higher than 1.69 Lei should be ignored.  When at Banaesa Airport you should avoid taking one of the Taxi’s waiting outside, and ring one instead.
