Is it true about taxi drivers ripping you off in Paris, France?

Jump to last reply

I watched a Globe Trekker episode this past Sunday night that focused on Paris. The woman, she's a little edgy, whatever her name is - was in a Paris taxi and she started speaking wildly in French to the taxi driver and jabbing at her opened map, then she turns to the camera and says the driver is taking her on a longer route than necessary so she's being overcharged. She bargained with the taxi cab driver (I assume) because then he agreed to lower the fare. My question is: does this happen frequently? I had heard from one of college professors who lived in Paris for a year, that the Parisians will overcharge not just tourists, but their fellow countrymen. I'm headed there this summer; any advice on how to avoid this "overcharging" if this is true? Thanks!
