Taxi fares vary from city to city. In some cities, taxis have meters that tell
you the fare. For long rides, it is a good idea to ask in advance what the
approximate fare will be. This is especially true if you're taking a taxi from
an airport. You should tip taxi drivers about 15% of the total fare.
