Likelyhood of being tunneled on the way from airport

Will most of the taxi drivers try to "tunnel" us if we take a cab from the airport? dh & I are pretty "touristy".

What should we say to ensure that we don't get tunneled?

It would almost be better to just ask for it and get it over with so you are not scared of it anymore.

Its only $5-10 more and its faster to alot of places.

Where are you staying? You could always mapquest directions before you go if you don't know where you're going.

I'm pretty practical.The one time I was tunneled the amount that would have been the drivers tip went into the longer ride

Easy peasy
