2. Take a taxi
Belgrade taxi service is cheap, but be careful, sometimes taxi drivers heavily overcharge clients. In order to stop this bad practice, the Belgrade Airport has introduced the following mechanism:
On the airport exit there is a Taxi information desk, where you can order taxi with the fixed price. From the airport to the city center the fix price is from 2300 to 3000 dinars (25 Euro). You just have to say the address to the Taxi information desk officer, they will give you a voucher with fixed price and will be going with you right to the first available taxi driver and you are paying that amount when you get to the desired address. Charge per piece of baggage in the boot sometimes is free, sometimes is 100 dinars. Tips is up to you, people often tip 1~2 Euro.
Pros: The taxi stand is easy to find in the airport.
Cons: It is very difficult to find a taxi with child seats. When getting from Belgrade city to airport there is no fix rate.
Note: In the airport exit terminal, avoid ghost cabs (where someone approaches you in the airport, not at the taxi stand, and directs you to their unauthorized vehicle without a meter).
