Look down on this forum and you will see detailed posts about such topic.

Anyway best option to avoid any misunderstandings is to buy a taxi voucher, from €12 to €16.

When I went to buy a taxi voucher, the folks at the booth told me not to buy one. They said a taxi would cost less than the voucher... and it did.

Our ride from the airport to the Clarion Suites was about 9 euros for 2 people (with 2 bags). By the way, your hotel should cost less because it's a bit closer to the airport.

Remind the driver to turn on the meter. The cost back to the airport was about the same.

Don't look for a taxi outside the luggage area. There's a bit of a line.

What we did was head up the escalator and got a cab there (with no waiting).

If your back is to the taxi voucher booth, walk to your 11:00 position. That's where the escalator is. Taxis are right outside. This was at 10:00 in the morning.

Do you mean the Departures area? Best place at the airport to hail a cab?

Yes, that is what he means. In the departures area, there is a taxi area (not at the drop of but on the other side of the street) and those are "the good" taxis. As the airport is really small, going there is no big fuss. I always do that.

Correct. Plus you tend to get more honest drivers at Departures. As previously discussed on other threads.
