On Friday 30th of Sept, I was leaving home to Christchurch and missed my airport bus, and anyway I walked behind Rotorua Central Mall and saw some taxis waiting, I approached a taxi and asked the taxi man the fare to Rotorua Airport, he said if there is no stopping at red light and no traffic jam he will charge me $32.00 otherwise it is 35.00. I said ok, the situation that angered me was that he alterated his meter, (I saw him doing it ) and said the meter is showing $33.80 which is a big lie. Also there was no stopping at red light and no traffic jam. I was running late for my plane so didn't want to argue and payed the fare. The taxi driver is really a con artist.
I will never ever take a taxi anymore in Rotorua.
