Taxi Price Scam on Some of Airport in Asian Countries


Taxi drivers all over Asia know how to extort both foreigners and locals. Even the most experienced traveler can easily fall prey to some of the lesser-used tricks.

For example Loads of Taxi scams at Dabolim airport, LONG ‘Q’ greets you upon arrival & departure, you will be checked 5-12 times, on arrival you may be asked if you have any cigarettes (probably your duty free stuff) these will be taken from you, only use the official porters in brown uniforms, on our departure many people had stuff taken from their hand luggage, trinkets, pens, & all lighters will be taken, there are no smoking signs up as is the case all over Goa, you can smoke, a lot of people had stashed a box of matches on themselves for this purpose.
