Luxembourg taxis already raising prices in preparation for the weekend

Luxembourg’s taxis are already adjusting the meters inside the cars in preparation for this weekend, as many people return from their holidays.

“We are going to take full advantage of the hot weather and the fact that many people will be drinking for extended periods of time on the terraces,” said Pierre, a taxi driver in Luxembourg since many years.

“The people will probably be drunk by the time they decide to take a cab, so altering the pricing meters and taking the longer route to their destination won’t be so noticeable to them.”

Expect a queue of over-priced taxis, parked illegally near your favourite bar all weekend.
