More precisely, they are legal but their prices unreasonably high. The drivers of these services staying at the airport entrance with badges “TAXI”, walkie-talkies and offer taxi service. The cost of the trip to city center with these drivers is 2 or more times higher and can reach 100 euros. We read a lot of stories in TripAdvisor forum about travelers who got into this trap and paid 50 euros and more. And seems like travelers keep falling into that trap. So, be careful.
In contrast, the drivers of such taxi services do not speak English, their cars are mostly older than 10 years and they haven’t insurance. It means in case of a traffic accident you will not get an insurance payment.
