Thus the taxi from the Riverside Chatrium aerodrome to the Riverside aerodrome is only ?.92. They' re not charging you factions of Baet anyway. It is possible to estimate the price by looking up the route from a map location and viewing the price chart.
Chatrium's minimal charge would be 283lb, but in addition there is a 50lb extra charge at the airports, tolls (typically 75lb) and whatever you pay for delaying low speed services or hanging around hanging arches. Overall costs should be slightly below 450 Bt.
All I can say is that you will rarely find a taxi with a manipulated counter. It happens when the gauge bounces like Bht2 every five seconds or when the operator continuously presses the brakes down at the light. This dubious counter is something I once had when I thought the rider knew it wasn't my first BKK race.
A little reticent at the motel, but he knew he was mistaken. With more than a hundred visitors to Bangkok since Metertaxis became the standard, I have never seen a dubious counter. However, on innumerable opportunities I have had riders who either reject a trip altogether or refrain from going to the bar.
Folks suggest avoiding cabs before the guesthouse. Taxi drivers waiting near your accommodation will always not use the instrument. You are often in close contact with the guesthouse front desk and the bells. A lot of tuk tuks, but usually more than a taxi. Hello, go to the road and call a taxi.
It is always better to go to the main street and stop a taxi in motion that shows its flashing green lights "to rent". Let them know your target and if they are going in and make sure the counter is on. When they ask for a firm price, just try another taxi.
However, in some areas, most will try to get a firm ticket price. When you have to pay a firm price after several meters of refusal.....unfortunately this is the case in Bangkok. Go to a road with heavy traffic and mark a taxi on the way. It' s better to mark a taxi in your direction: taxi drivers don't like turns on busy streets and they take you a lot of trouble and expense.
It'?s good to get on the clock when the rider is nodding, so get in. When he begins to discuss a prize, shut the gate, beckon him away and mark the next one. Mark always a taxi on the move and not a taxi seated, mainly a taxi parking in touristic areas. Clearly the man who' travels around wants to work, while the man in front of your motel is awaiting a jerk to tear off, earning more cash for less.
Watch out for the meters not working thing, too. lf the counter doesn't work, get another taxi.
