How it works:
- Taxis here do not use meters, hence, they can overcharge you with inflated flat fares.
Places to beware:
- Dar es Salaam
What to do:
- Avoid: taxis at tourist spots (e.g. Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar ferry port).
- Photo: take a photo of the taxi number and driver’s license.
- Overcharging: ensure meter is turned on or research a fair price to negotiate with – check online fare estimators, your hotel/hostel staff or taxi booking apps (e.g. Uber).
