Manila Airport Taxi

Taxi Manila

Getting to Manila by taxi turns to be a suitable mean of transportation given its closeness to downtown Manila.

Manila’s city is quite famous for its large traffic jams, transferring times can vary between 20 minutes, without traffic, to an hour.

Types of taxi

At Manila Airport there are three types of taxis: Coupon Taxis, blue and yellow, Regular Taxis and Yellow-metered Airport Taxis, coloured yellow.

The first ones charge a specific amount according to distance, the second ones run on fixed rates and the third ones are just metered taxis.

Coupon Taxis

To take a Coupon Taxi you just need to approach to the dispatch station available at any of the airport terminals, state your destination and you’ll be given a coupon which marks the price to pay.

Please keep your coupon during all trip and do not deliver it to the driver until the end of the ride.

Even they are not precisely cheap, it is the best option for travelling in group.

In case of carrying large luggage, you can ask for a large taxi, up to eight passengers, without surcharge.

Regular Taxis

The Regular Taxis are just the normal cabs around Metro Manila.

Yellow-metered Airport Taxis

The Yellow-metered Airport Taxis are on average a 50% more expensive than the regular taxis but they are the only metered taxi company allowed in the airport premises.

In case the driver refuses to turn on the meter, board another taxi and report it to the airport authorities if possible


Taxis are located in the departures exit of each terminal.
