Marseille Taxi Tips
- If you do not speak French, a good way to tell the taxi driver where you want to go is by showing him a piece of paper, or your smartphone, with the address of your destination written on it.
- As usual when travelling abroad, beware of taxi scams and double-check that the meter is on.
- Consider taking a taxi if you are traveling here late at night as they are often safer than subways and metro stations such as the Marseille-St-Charles railway station.
