Tax Prices

It being rather hot this afternoon, we took a short taxi ride into Side. I produced the usual 20TL and, while it was accepted, I was told that "new price - 25 lira" would apply in future.

A 25% price hike looks steep but in view of the collapse of the Lira it is perhaps to be expected.

There is a big taxi rank opposite the amphitheatre at the beginning of Old Town Side and all the prices are written up clearly on a board there. I have not noticed that they have gone up in price recently though. I'll take another look in the next day or so and report back about it. The best plan is to ask the price before you get into the the taxi of course. x Angela in Side x
