How it works:
- Version 1: driver claims that your hotel isn’t safe and that he knows somewhere better. That place is generally an expensive, low quality hotel where he gets a commission.
- Version 2: driver or a street tout claims that the restaurant you are going is either closed or no longer good. However, he knows a place by the sea which is cheap and good. The place is of course, not cheap and not good and one where he gets a kickback.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Stick to your plan. Research opening hours and see for yourself if a place is really closed.
