CAUTION: Cancellations of PAL Flights

Dishonest taxi drivers

Several tourists get stunned about the taxi motorists in the Philippines – but not only vacationers. Is there genuinely no resolution to get rid of all this cheating taxi motorists?

This is a mail we acquired from Fatima an OFW (Abroad Filipino Employee):
I would like to share with you my knowledge relating to my initially holiday to the Philippines. I was expecting that time. When I arrived in NAIA-1, I waited for shuttle bus but I missed it out so then I prepared to acquire a taxi since there is no time for me to take my 2nd flight (domestic flight). The taxi driver had told me that no want to change-on the meter and it was up to me how much would I gave to him. For the reason that, I was so hurry that time, I took the taxi (yellow taxi) immediately without the need of any argument and when we attained the domestic airport, I gave him PHP 300 but continue to he insisted to give him extra as it is not more than enough so then I gave more PHP 200, a total of PHP 500 but nevertheless he’s inquiring and I explained to that, it was the very last revenue in my pocket. This really will make me so pissed off every time I try to remember this and approach for my family vacation. Most of kabayans in the Philippines did not think how substantially sufferings the OFW have right here abroad.

Complaining at the LTFRB (the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board) would seem to be no alternative. If the LTFRB went very seriously right after the defective drivers and their patrons, if the LTFRB fined them truly greatly, then probably 1 day,  you could get a taxi in the Philippines without becoming ripped.

Here you can complain: LTFRB
