Travelling by taxi will cost us more from next Monday. The new measures pinned the service in the highest VAT band of 23%. Until now cabbies only had 13%.

And indeed they are worried because work has shrunk dramatically anyway over the past four years and the trend stays the same. "We are now made tax-collectors and have to slap higher prices," complained one of them.

Here's how rates change from Monday (in Euros):
