Safety and Complaints for Vienna Taxis
Drivers in Vienna are a very honest bunch and rarely try to take more money from their passengers. However, if you do believe this has happened to you, you should write down the taxi number and driver’s unique ID number and ask for your receipt. You should then call the company that you booked the taxi from or head to the Local Police and make a report.
