It’s not common for taxi drivers in Copenhagen to try and take more money from their customers as they are generally reliable. However, if you believe this has happened to you, you should write down the taxi number and driver’s unique ID number (this should always be on display in the taxi) and ask for your receipt. You can then call the company that you travelled with or head to the Local Police and make a report.
