Q376: Where is the distinction between taxi and private car rental?

Taxi's are mini-trucks and are allowed to collect persons from the side of the street, i.e. call a taxi. Rental private cars are only allowed to collect pre-arranged reservations and not to collect persons at the side of the street. When you have a complaints about either of the two types of car and it is not a charge, you should consult your national authorities.

Every municipality will have a section to deal with these questions. You can find more information on the website to find your nearest government agency.
