Re Tuesday's letter from Grantham, a tip I gave to my tourists coming from the airport if the taxi driver asked for more than I had indicated was to ask the driver for an official receipt. Not a figure scribbled on the back of a fag packet but one written into an official receipt book, specific to his cab, which a taxi is obliged to carry. To sign for a fraudulent fare is for him to sign a death warrant and the mere mention of "official receipt" normally made the price tumble. If you feel particularly aggrieved, you can then refuse to pay at all as you are saying you wish this fraud to brought to the attention of the authorities.
