Book your taxi transfer to the airport in advance

When booking an airport transfer, it is important to take into account some facts. Pre-booking online can save a lot of time, energy, and trouble. Sometimes when arriving in a foreign country, taxis will not be metered and will want a prepaid or pre-agreed rate. These prepaid rates can be exorbitant in both value and service. Often times, the time required for a trip can be short, but the fare is clearly too expensive. Throughout my experiences traveling through Asia, through Vietnam, Thailand and Laos, taxi fares have been up to 5 times the price paid by a local. Arriving at airports, the tourist can often be tired and confused with jet legs, so the unscrupulous taxi driver will take advantage of the stunned traveler, handing him in his taxi.
This same story happened to me a few years ago. I clearly remember traveling from Hon Soi Square in Beijing and, to my disgust and naivety, I paid almost 5 times the price of what I should have paid. Taxi drivers often shove the weary traveler into their cabs, and in their weary despair, in their jet lag stupor, they accept outrageously expensive fares, in their rush out of the sun and into a cold shower. This was a lesson I learned the hard way. My taxi driver took me to my agreed destination, but not before taking me almost to Hebei province and back, through alleys and alleys, in an attempt to justify the expensive fare from him. After a few weeks in the city, I realized that the taxi had traveled an incredibly complicated route, in an attempt to hide its shocking prices. For those traveling  taxi airport zaventem on a budget, sometimes the difference in fare can mean a shorter stay or being content with inferior accommodations. However, I learned my lesson well and, in the future, I decided to book all my airport transfers in advance, via the Internet, to avoid such unscrupulous deals. I have had other friends in similar situations. A friend in Ho Chi Min City, Vietnam, was transferred to a rather unpleasant part of the city due to a language confusion with the driver. As he had prepaid the ticket, he had no choice when the driver demanded that he leave his taxi, and he was immediately unceremoniously thrown to the side of Phu My Hung. The driver shook his head angrily when my friend demanded that his money be returned, but he abdicated all responsibility, threw his luggage to the side of the road and sped off with his considerable profit. Dishonest taxi drivers often wait at airports, agreeing with the traveler that their taxis are metered, but once in the taxi they demand their fare. When exhausted from long-haul flights, the last thing the busy traveler or business executive wants is to discuss the odds of a hot and humid taxi ride. Pre-booking airport transfers was the best decision I made. I implore you, when traveling to exotic climates, to book your airport transfers in advance; They will save you a great deal of hassle and time, making your trip as stress-free as possible. Pre-booked taxis may seem more expensive, but trust me, from the experiences I’ve had, they are ridiculously cheap.
