How it works:
- Overview: also known as bike taxis or rickshaws, the pedicab scam can also be found in France.This is a common scam that has been going on for many years in Tallin and which many fall for all too easily. Besides targeting tourists At Tallin Old Town, they also target those who just arrived at the cruise ships.
- Set-up: these pedicab drivers can lie in two ways. One, claiming that your plan isn’t feasible, and that you should use their service. Two, is to quote you a price which you think is for one pedicab, only to be told that it is actually for each person. The driver may also show you a laminated fare sheet, but with the clause that the fare is for each person being in very small print at the bottom of the sheet.
Places to beware:
- Tallinn: Tallinn Old Town
What to do:
- If you have trouble walking, take a bus or cab instead.
