Taxi Scams in Skopje

Taxi scams exist worldwide, and this is no exception in Skopje. Some of the most popular and common taxi scams in Skopje include overcharging, fake taxis, no change, and

  • Double charging: One of the most popular taxi scams if using the Cammeo app in Skopje is the double charge. The taxi driver will demand payment in cash upon completion of the ride despite having already paid within the app. Make sure to agree upon the payment method before heading off.
  • Overcharging: It is best to make sure the taxi has a working taxi meter before heading off. Some taxi drivers may try to charge you more than the agreed price or claim that the price was per person, not per ride. They may also pretend that you gave them a smaller banknote than you did or refuse to give you change. To avoid this, you should always agree on the price before getting in the taxi and use exact or small bills to pay.ย 
  • Fake taxis: Some taxi drivers may not be licensed or affiliated with any reputable company. They may offer you a lower price than the official taxis but also take you to a longer route or a different destination than you requested. To avoid this, use one of the reputable taxis mentioned above.
  • Airport scam: Some taxi drivers may offer you a ride to the airport for a fixed price, but then they may change their plan and drop you off at a different location, where another taxi driver will charge you again for the rest of the journey. They may also claim that there is a traffic jam or a road closure and take you to a longer or more expensive route.

How to Get from the Skopje Airport to the City Center

You can get to the city center from the Skopje airport by private airport transfer, taxi, or by the Skopje Airport Shuttle.

Private Airport Transfer to Skopje

Private transfer is the easiest way to get from the Skopje airport to the city center. This is also, however, the most expensive. Using a private airport transfer, you can ensure you arrive at your intended destination safely without dealing with potential taxi scams.

We recommend using either Taxi Service Skopje Airport or Plus Transfers Skopje. Both providers offer reliable, comfortable, and friendly services.

Airport Taxi

As with any airport, you can always grab a taxi from the rink of taxis outside the airport. All registered taxis from the airport operate out of white vehicles and prominently display a taxi number of 1 to 65. The airport regulates the fare, and should cost 1,500 MKD.

Skopje Airport Shuttle Bus

The Skopje Airport Shuttle is the cheapest option to get to the city center from the Skopje airport (and vice-versa). The shuttle costs only 199 MKD, and tickets can be purchased at the airport counter between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm or directly on the bus using local currency or credit card.

The shuttle bus makes four stops on the journey.

  • Holiday Inn
  • Central Bus Station
  • Capital Mall
  • Skopje Airport

The only downside of the airport shuttle bus is the odd timetable, as the shuttle does not run at the same time every day.

How to Get from Skopje to Other Cities in Macedonia

The best way to reach other cities in Macedonia from Skopje is via public bus or by arranging a private taxi.
