Frankfurt Taxi Safety and Complaints
Taxis in Frankfurt are the safest mode of transportation. Just like you would do anywhere in the world, you may want to double-check the route to your destination in advance, so that your driver doesn’t take the “scenic route” to drive up the fare, and you should exercise the normal amount of caution. If an issue arises, be sure to record the taxi number and keep your receipt; you can then file a complaint with the taxi company you used or report any incidents to the local police. The company’s phone number would be on the receipt, posted on the taxi, or can be found on the company’s website.
