Avoid people in the airport arrivals hall who encourage you to use some random form of 'taxi' transportation. They often do not have a license to carry people in their cars, and their fees are several times higher than a registered and legal corporate taxi. 

When using taxis in Warsaw, it is strongly reccomended that you only use taxis with the following: the symbol of Warsaw - a mermaid - on both front doors, yellow/red stripes affixed to the glass along the front doors, a number stuck to the side of the vehicle, a hologram with the license number and the vehicle's registration number on the upper right-hand corner of the front glass, and a sticker with price information per kilometer that must be displayed on the glass of the right-hand side back door. It is reccomended for you to use one of the city's official Radio-Taxi companies, and order a taxi by telephone.
