The taxis are regulated by the prefecture who set the rates and the fare must always be displayed on the meter. A receipt must be issued for any fare over 15.24 euros.  Any taxi driver found guilty of overcharging risks losing his licence so it is very unlikely that you will be a victim of this.

If you do think you have cause for complaint contact:-

Monsieur le Préfet des Alpes-Maritimes
Direction de la Réglementation
et des Libertés Publiques
Bureau de la Circulation
06286 Nice Cedex 3

Switchboard:  +33 (0) 

Make a note of the taxi number (the 3 figures on the “taxi” sign) and keep a copy of your receipt.
