We always just look for the taxi with Radio Taxi on the light box / doors.

We don't really worry about the company, just how the car looks .. if it is an old wreck coming down the street, we wait til it passes to flag down a taxi :)

They are all governed by the same rules, you just have to find one that has a light box on the roof, and that doesn't look like a wreck.

There are so many that you always have a choice.

I, too, use Taxi Premium most often. I have also had good experiences with City and Pidalo.

This said, if you want maximum protection you will need to phone the cab company of your choice and ask them to pick you up. This will ensure the cab company has a record of which unit was dispatched for your ride. There is no record if you are simply picked up curbside.

I don't normally phone, don't pay a lot of attention to the company and have never had a real problem.....but if maximum safety is your concern, phone Taxi Premium or one of the other companies listed here.

The Radio Taxis are always dependable.

My wife and I have traveled extensively; we find the taxis in BsAs to be among the best in the world.

Of all the taxi trips I have made in BsAs, I have never had a driver try to cheat me or give me the 'royal tour' before arriving at my destination.

Some other large cities are notorious for taxi drivers that cheat, but not this one, at least in my experience.

If you don't speak any Spanish (I speak it fluently) and have trouble pronouncing the name of your destination, write it down on a piece of paper for the driver.

Have a nice visit to BsAs...even with its faults it's a marvelous city!

Ditto, 766flojos2 !

One of my favorite taxi experiences was upon arrival when we were taking long , traffic filled rides to various Government buildings in the process of getting our residency - the taxi driver put on some good music then proceeded to sing along with it. I think we were riding with a moonlighting opera singer .. amazing voice .. who paid attention to how long the trip took ? not I !
