It is no exaggeration to say that my wife, my daughter and I were lucky to get to Salzburg Airport alive.
The driver of our taxi was erratic and dangerous. He was dishevelled and unfit to drive. We had to tell him to slow down and to keep his eyes on the road so he didn't collide with vehicles slowing down or turning off. He was constantly yawning and I had to watch him all the time from my seat beside him to ensure he did not fall asleep. He sang crazily along to his Abba tribute band cd, veering into the verge or into other lanes, accelerating and braking erratically and dangerously. My daughter's seat was not fitted properly and my wife had to keep a constant hold of it as it moved and swayed beside her.
When we approached Salzburg, the driver did not know where he was going and appeared not to be able to read the road signs. I had to show him the turn off to the airport, which he only just made in time, nearly hitting a truck in the process, and then my wife and I had to keep directing him, even though all we were doing was reading the signs. We don't speak German but coped better than he did.
Our lives were in danger and we remain quite traumatised by the experience.
It is vital that this driver is prevented from driving or at least prevented from being a taxi driver. He is going to kill someone one day and he should not be on the road.
Please do NOT use this company.
