TAXI

Never, ever take an unmarked car from the street or from the airport/station. Pick one or two taxi corporations and always use them. The safest way is to order a taxi by phone. If you do not speak Polish download an application – many taxi corporations have their own app. You can also download iTaxi or myTaxi – „internet only” taxi corporations. Avoid taxi ranks apart from the clearly marked ones at the aiports or the Warszawa Centralna station (they are marked with a logo of the corporation that is allowed to stop there). If you see „your” corporation waiting in the queue at a taxi rank take it even if it is not the first taxi in the queue.

iTaxi +48 737 737 737
