Piraeus Taxis
Taxis in Piraeus or Athens are reasonable, cheap and quite easy to find. Sometimes taxis are shared with others if passengers are travelling in the same direction. Often if the taxi driver don't like your destination he refuse to take you. Always make sure that the taxi meter is running and that it is not showing “2” - this is the double fare for use late at night. Always use licenced yellow cabs. Official Taxis in Piraeus or Athens are marked with the word "Taxi" written in black lettering against white background. Some taxi companies offer online reservations this can be more expensive but always more safe and never shared with others.

Before using a taxi, you should also be aware of the following:

Taxi driver's obligations:
He should carry passenger's luggage from the pavement to the vehicle and vice versa.
He is not entitled to deny you a ride and cannot pick up extra passengers without your permission.
Passenger may request a waiting time up to 15 minutes, or more if there is a serious reason.
Upon passenger's request, the driver is obliged to issue an invoice stating the route and metred fare paid.
ATG Taxi Tips .

You can tip the driver (but only if you want to) at a rate of 5 - 10% at your own discretion.

Online reservations Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. Be suspicious of emails or websites that originate from free email & web hosting services (yahoo, Googlepages, hotmail, gmail, aol, etc)

A taxi driver and a tour guide are not the same, a taxi driver by the Greek law can not guide inside the archaeological sites and museums. If you need a guide for your visit you need a licensed guide and a driver. A taxi service cover only the transfers and the waiting time.
