Taxi in Bratislava
If you call taxi, it is always cheaper. All taxis charge at least double price if you just stop them on the street. It is market anomaly in Bratislava due to some historical reasons.
However if you just jump into any taxi on the airport – you may be charged much more (typically at least double/tripple of call price).
Unfortunatelly many “old school” taxi drivers were just cheaters or simply that kind of tricxky people dealing and smugling anything.
For example there was a situation that a lady went just 1 km away from the airport and she was charged 50 EUR. How is that possible? Basically the driver made a “city trip” for the lady and it looked like 30 minutes driving around.
Just like in any country unfortunately airport or station taxi drivers expect to earn a lot on tourists or people who do not know local conditions, and they misuse it and cheat.
And as this is almost everywhere in the world – you cannot be surprised and must expect it.
Then based on this information it is up to you how you handle this 🙂
You can also take a bus from the airport to the city. Bus lines 61 or 96. the ticket cost approx 1-1.50 eur. I am saying approx here – because from time to time, the company increases prices 🙂
Here is a journey planner for public transport. I think you need to google a bit to get the place where you want to go and how to get there.
