Never get in a taxicab before agreeing on your ride fare.

Period. So, BEFORE you jump in a taxicab - ensure you concur on the ride cost. Basically, in Richmond you only have 2 options: a metered charge or a negotiated price.

Have the right change.

It always surprises if not disturbs, when some Richmond cab driver gives you a price to get to a certain place, you arrive there and hand over a larger banknote and the cab driver looks stunned that you expect him to give back change. To avoid this - just have a lot of small bills on you and give the exact cash sum as your fare. Or if Uber (or similar taxi app) is available in your locality, then you can just use Uber app to book a taxi in Richmond and pay with your credit card linked to your app account.

Ask for directions in the local language.
