We have always found them very reasonable compared to the UK.

Sounds like you were scammed.



50 would get you from Larnaca airport to Kyrenia....about an hour and 20 minutes!



Can you give more details?

Maybe the taxi driver's life expectancy came into play?



I would have given him 10 and told him to take you to court for the balance if he felt that was not enough...

atwister58, you sure this was an official taxi? How did you get the taxi - from a taxi rank, hotel phoned it for you, hailed it? There is a Turkish Cypriot Consumer Association here which would be very interested in your case.

You were ripped off.



A taxi from Larnaca Airport to Girne is about that, I paid 40.00 last time I came from Larnaca to kyrenia in March this year.

It may be that you got a Greek Cypriot Taxi from Larnaca and they know how to charge. In future best if you can arrange for a taxi from the North to collect you from Larnaca, charge to Girne 40 to 50. When you are returning agree a price in advance, should be a maximum of 50.00

quackers,



I always used birdrentacar when I first bought my property they are very good but they really charge for their transfers from Larnaca. Found aone rentals do the transfers for 25.00 each way and rental cars are the same price and just as good as bird.
