One of the most complicated things to travel in Hanoi is the transportation. How to identify truthful taxis in Hanoi among hundreds of them?
Thanks to the development of tourism, Hanoi is now one of the most attractive cities in Vietnam, so transportation has also improved a lot. Hence, more and more taxi brands have been established, both truthful and fake ones, with different fares. However, one of the most necessary things you should remember is to identify taxi scams among them to avoid as much as you can.
One of the best ways to avoid taxi scams is not catching or calling taxis on the street as you cannot know which one is believable if this is your first time in Hanoi.
You can ask the receptionists where you stay to call a taxi for you since they are local so they can know which one is better. Ask them to write down where you go in Vietnamese in case drivers cannot understand what you say, as taxi drivers can only speak limited English.
Always check the meter counter if you unfortunately take take the taxi that you don’t know whether it is believable or not. The worst thing is you will be overcharged.
Whether the car is new or not since many big truthful brands in Hanoi have been updating their types of cars to serve customers.
If you want to go to Nội Bài airport or go to the center, check with the hotels where you live whether they do the picking-up or dropping-off services or not or whether they provide free airport transfers before your arrivals.
