Always call for an official Taxi if its possible, specially in the Airport when arriving. The easiest way to do it, is to go to the Tourist Information Desk and ask them for a TAXI waucher after paying (price depends on the distance) it you present it to the TAXI driver at the end of the drive, there are no additional costs. To stop one outside the airport is not advisable (price can be as high as EUR 50). For more information on how to get to and from the airport please visit the official web page of Belgrade airport (http://www.beg.aero/passengers/to_and...).
If you get stung by an unlicensed TAXI driver avoid argument and call the police.
Same situation is when you are going from the city to the airport. It is advisable that hotel calls for a cab for you since they are more likely to call one of the TAXI companies.
Regular taxis besides the plate with the name of the TAXI company have additional blue plate with just a number. This blue plate is saying that taxi is registered and obligatory to use the meter and to give you a bill if you ask for it. So, if you are trying to get a cab in the city centre, DO NOT take cabs that dont have blue plate on the roof. If you come or go to Budapest you can book here TaxiCab. There are numerous TAXI companies (or a association) in Belgrade which can be identified by company name, and unified TAXI plate, TAXIs which are not members of a TAXI company and as such are not subjected to additional internal controls have white TAXI plates. Easiest way of reaching an TAXI which is member of a company is by phone calling any number from 19801 to 19808, some of the largest TAXI companies are Pink (19803), Maxi (19804), Beogradski (19801) and Plavi (19805). TAXI companies offer additional security to their passengers and all provide call services where passenger can file a complaint. Please have in mind that additional discount which was available in some TAXI companies when called via phone are not available any more.
Usually, there are illegal taxi drivers at the main city square (Trg Republike) as well as during night in front of popular night clubs, and they drive cars which stand out from average taxi drivers (Audi, Mercedes, sport and modifed versions ...), avoid them! Also illegal drivers can be identified with the lack of TX ending on their license plates (car's license plates) however this unfortunately allways so.
There is bus, number 72, which leaves from the airport and goes to the city centre (Zeleni venac - one street from the center) . Bus stop is close to departure hall which is on your left when you come out of arrival part. The journey takes 1 hour as its public transport and stops at every lamp post but its ecxcllent way of getting to know the city. You can get a ticket at news agency in the airport (reccommend) or once you are in the bus - from the driver. Try to ask for a ticket when the bus is stationary otherwise you may never get change!
You can also take mini bus number A1, wich leaves from the airport and has several stops, one is in Novi Beograd (Fontana) following is at the main Railway station and the final (or first) one is at the Slavija square in front of the Slvaija hotel, and ticket costs RSD 300 (for more data visit http://www.beg.aero/passengers/to_and...)
