There are generally no problems with taxis, but if you feel that you have been overcharged you can ask for an invoice, write down the license plate number and take it to the tourist police (Praça dos Restauradores, Palácio Foz with telephone number 21 342 16). What you can also do is buy a taxi voucher at the Airport or at the tourism center in Praça do Comércio. There are several options such as vouchers to the city center or from cab for the whole day.
