You're reading: Taxi ripoffs at the airport

I have just taken an official taxi from Kyiv Boryspil to the Kidev Park Hotel next to Boryspil Airport. The taxi driver did not switch on the taximeter. When I asked why he did not do this, he just answered, “Ask the manager at the airport,” and “we have a minimum taxi fare”. At the hotel he asked me for 150 hryvnia that took about 4-5 minutes. When I asked for a receipt, he just printed a bill on his taximeter by pressing one of the buttons that displayed a 180 hrvynia charge.

When I started to ask about the number to the airport manager he just dropped my luggage off and asked with a very unpleasant voice, “150 hryvnia,” grabbed the money, jumped in the car and drove away very fast. I noticed the taxi’s license plate number (AA 5481 EP).

On the bill he gave me there are a lot of different things printed, but NO RIDE!!!
