Why do the taxi drivers feel the need to overcharge?
Me, my fiancee, brother an his girlfriend went from the Columbus in PDLA to San Eugenio supermarket today and when we arrived at the supermarket the driver added the 1.65 surcharge which they add on when they take you to the aiport/ beach.
We have done this journey two other times this holiday and hadn't been hit with the surcharge so I asked the driver why he added €1.65?
His reply was 'if you don't want to pay it then I will drive you to the police station.'
Was he taking advantage of the situation since we are in our young 20's?
I have been to Tenerife in excess of 10 times now and this is only the second time where I have been caught by this surcharge, admittedly the first time I wasn't aware of the 'pick up from the beach charge'
Over to you guys.
Are they regulated by the Tenerife government?
