Arrived this AM with wife and kid + 3 suitcases and stroller, took a can (my first time. I usually call one of these guys and meet em, but at 4 am no one wanted to come) and paid through the roof, 320₪ for a slow drive, and he stopped off for gas  >:(

In short: dont take the taxis outside the airport!

Wow do I get annoyed when they do that. I already learned my lesson though. If a guy does that to me again I just wouldn't pay. Totally unacceptable.

I had one story where the taxi guy took me 'home' and I didn't have cash. All of. sudden when we get there he can't take credit and I too had specifically asked. All I had was a hundred dollar bill US in the house and I went to get it and we spent another half hour (at 3 in the morning) driving around trying to find someone who would change it. I was really young at the time (14?)  and clearly dumb. Or at least didn't have enough guts to tell the guy No, and just walk away.

My family I was going to called up the taxi service after and complained and I got back some sort of compensation.
The guy was clearly taking advantage.

Yes. I know i could've walked up. But i did not have it in me to start finding a guy up there and getting it done. Its 2 fold the price which i would've accepted but it bothered me more than i saw he had a swipe in his car near my feet, drove VERY slow and got gas
