1) Communication and transport app’s in Poland
You probably already know this app, because it works in most countries. We highly recommend using Uber especially if you are a foreigner. The benefits of using it are many. First of all, you immediately know how much you will pay to reach your destination. When using standard taxi services, as foreigners there is a possibility that drivers will want to cheat you and offer a much higher rate. When using taxi services, as foreigners there is a possibility that drivers will want to cheat you and offer a much higher rate, especially if you take a taxi from a stop at the airport or train station. If it is not possible to use the uber and you have to take a regular taxi – first look at the tolls for driving one kilometre (rates are written on a sticker on the windshield) or set the exact rate with the driver so that you will not be surprised later.
