Belgrade taxi is a common topic regardless of whether you live in the city or are a tourist. Doubts exist only if you skip reading this text.
Taxi prices in Belgrade differ from association to association, but are approximately the same. Dozens of taxi associations are registered on the territory of the city. Unfortunately, a large number of them on the streets are represented by unlicensed taxi drivers - unregistered to provide taxi services and they are the only inconvenience in the world of traffic.
A registered taxi vehicle has a board on the roof of the car with the name of the association of which it is a member. Next to the logo of the association is its number. Remember that number when entering the vehicle. In the event of a misunderstanding, calling the association and providing precise information about the vehicle whose service you used will make it easier to find a solution to the problem.
The license plates of a real taxi always end with the letters "TX". If the vehicle does not have this registration, do not sit in it.
In Belgrade, taxis are not required to be yellow. The color of the car does not matter, follow the guidelines above and you will have no problem.
The price of a taxi from the airport to the city center is about 2,500 dinars, which is a little more than 21 euros. That is the price for a day's drive. The night taxi rate from the airport to the city center is about 2,800 dinars - about 24 euros. It is always better to call a taxi and schedule a ride than to stop the vehicle on the street, especially in front of the airport. When you get into the vehicle, pay attention that the taxi driver activates the taximeter at that moment. Do not agree on the price of the ride before entering the vehicle.
Every passenger of Belgrade Airport has the right to a voucher for a taxi ride. The exact amount of the fare is stated on the voucher. They can be picked up at the Taxi info desk, at the exit of the customs - passport zone. In case passengers bypass this desk, another one is waiting in front of the building, at the taxi station itself. The passenger with the voucher does not pay for the ride according to the agreement or according to the taximeter, but only the amount written on the voucher. The voucher is valid for one ride and the number of passengers in the taxi is not important.
