Travel Forums Europe Taxi scam in tivat

We got today in one of these fake taxis that are on the left hand side in front of the airport! They have fake taxi meters, fake papers and so on.
The driver was taking an alternative longer way, so his manipulated taxi meter was showing 80 Euros!!!!! At the end of the trip from tivat airport to kotor!
Our luggage was locked in the trunk. When we did not want to pay he was locking the car and started to drive to god knows where ---screeming at us and threatening us. We did not had any signal on our mobiles, so we could not call the police. It was a nightmare!
The taxi was a red Renault with plate number:TV AM 658!!!
Don't get into it!

Booking online transfers can help to avoid scams:

These guys do it for about 10 Euros a trip. There are others who do it for about 30 Euros, which would still be cheaper than your taxi ride There is also a bus option that can take you from Tivat airport to Kotor though I don't know the price or how reliable they are.
