General note on taxis.
It is a good idea to ask for a price estimate beforehand.
The taxi must have a working counter for the price of the ride.
If the counter is not working, do not take that taxi.
There is a surcharge for luggage, late night rides,
servicing airports and terminals.
Tipping is not required and seldom practiced, but
drivers tend to round up their fare.
Tolls are paid by the driver and added up in the final price.
Taxis shall normally take up to 4 people,
including seating in the front seat.
