I'm still in shock after one of the most expensive taxi rides I've encountered anywhere in the world and I've travelled a lot. When I go interstate I usually hire a small car, under a $100 a day gets the job done. Yesterday I decided to grab a cab in Brisbane instead. The ride was about 25 minutes from the airport....$90!! Others at the conference reporting the same numbers. Ok everyone has to make a living but that is just bizarre and I calculated it out at almost twice what it would have cost here in Adelaide. So if you rare going to Brisbane don't get a cab, hire a small car with unlimited ks for two days instead and you will not only save money but you'll get where you want to go a lot quicker without having to speak a foreign language.
