Almost everybody uses taxis to hop from A to B when on a vacation. After all who can beat their local knowledge and the ability to deliver you safely to your destination. Not all taxi drivers are created equally though, so which cities in the world have the best taxi drivers?
Research conducted globally for hotels.com quizzed over 1,900 people for their opinions on taxis; their levels of cleanliness, value, quality of driving, knowledge of the area, friendliness, safety and availability;
10. Frankfurt, Germany – 10%
9. Paris, France – 10%
8. Copenhagen, Denmark – 11%
7. Dublin, Ireland – 11%
6. Madrid, Spain – 12%
5. Bangkok, Thailand 14%
4. Berlin, Germany 17%
3. Tokyo, Japan – 26%
2. New York, USA – 27%
1. London, UK – 59%
London taxis were overwhelmingly voted number one in the world thanks to helpful taxi drivers who know where they are going (thanks to the ‘Knowledge’ taxi driving test).
So what about the bad news; London cabbies are named the most expensive in the world, New York and Paris taxi drivers are the rudest and Rome had the worst taxi drivers in the world!
