Hints (applicable anywhere in the world): For local trips, make sure you can see the taxi meter before you start (it should not be covered by the driver's coat). For longer trips, request the approximate price before you start, write it down, and show it to the driver (just to make sure there isn't a "misunderstanding" with the language).
