I cannot begin to tell you how much my holiday in Prague was disastrous. I regret the very day I went on that vacation and will never pursue travels there again. If I ever set my eyes on that conniving taxi driver, I will surely make him regret the day he fled with our money. Listen to my story in this virtual paradigm: My partner and I chose Prague for our destined vacation spot last summer; we left home exciting and thrilled to the teeth, just feeling hyped about this vacation, as friends encouraged us through the recommendation of their former experience. They could not believe what we went through.
We recently eavesdrop on circulating gossip that taxi scams were surging in quite often for the region, we pondered; but was determined to gain our accomplishments set out for in Prague. Our approach to the situation is to negotiate fares pricing, before taking a taxi, but we still became victims. We had negotiated with the cab driver to pay US$ 300, so that the taxi driver would drive us to our hotel. This happened the second night of our visit, and the driver took us back to the hotel and paid the driver US$ 500, which the driver coupled with the other notes in his wallet. There is no way he could have been mistaken, because the note value was clear and could not have convinced him otherwise, because it was a single note. Anyway, my partner asked him for the change, but he produced a fifty dollar note, indicating that is what he received and needed the rest of the cash. The driver went ballistics on us saying he wanted the rest of the fare, after we indicated that we saw what he did, but he still denied it. My partner asked me to call the police, and my partner went back the taxi with his feet on the road, while the taxi driver was there talking in his mother tongue.
After a few minutes the cab driver started to pull my partner out of the car aggressively, I cried out for help several times to get the attention of the hoteliers as the street was scanty. It took a while for them to notice that we really needed assistance, so I had to intervene, but the driver punched me in my face and fell to the ground. It was at this point when the hotel security came to our rescue, and I discovered my partner got severe injuries as the boisterous taxi driver punched him several times in his stomach and other parts of the body. Blood was all over my partner’s clothes; I helped him out of the taxi, and the taxi driver sped off, before the police arrived and this was so bad. The hotel called the ambulance for us; we were treated and released, then planned to leave Prague immediately after submitting a report to the local police, who had no way to locate or identify the driver. This was disappointing for us, and Trey was in terrible pain so we had to stay until his pains eased, but there is no way we would visit or recommend Prague as a destination for travelers.
