Taxi Warning!!

Hi All. I wanted to warn everyone out there that when travelling by taxi only go with a company you are familiar with and you should write the license number down. Had a bad experience. New to zurich, didnt know the companies, got into a taxi and the man was very unprofessional and even pulled the car over because he wanted to take me out. Beware of pascha taxi.
cheers

Re: Taxi Warning!!

hmmm I believe I read a similar thread, or something similar in a thread about a month ago... can't find it a.t.m. Just wondering what taxi company the older post was referring to.

Re: Taxi Warning!!

Do you know what company is was in Basel. I had it happen in Basel as well a month ago but he was just looking for a date. Any info you could pass on would be very helpful.
thanks

Re: Taxi Warning!!

In all fairness that might have had little to do with the company and more to do with the guy being a creep. That could happen with any taxi company.

Don't know the name/number of the taxi firm but it was the one that drives the little white cars. I'll get on the case to find out which firm it is 'cos it happened to me with the same firm last year, I put it down to taxi man being a creep first time around hence why I used the firm again.

Re: Taxi Warning!!

There are plenty of creepy guys out there and that's why the company should know. I am tired of not feeling safe....I should be able to feel safe when I get in a taxi!!!

Re: Taxi Warning!!

I gotta ask, Why do you feel so unsafe in Zurich of all places? In the grand scheme of 'not-safe' places Zürich ranks pretty low on the scale.
