Mumbai Airport Taxi
It is without a doubt the best option to move from Mumbai Airport to the city centre.
You can transfer from Mumbai Airport to the city centre within 25 minutes up to two hours according to traffic conditions.
At Mumbai Airport you can find two kinds of taxi which are allowed to operate in the airport: The metered and the prepaid taxis. To get a general idea, the metered taxis are the ones coloured in black and yellow, while the prepaid taxis are the ones also known as Cool Cabs, which counts with a/c.
We strongly recommend you to ride the prepaid taxis as you will pay the fixed fare for your trip (these taxis count with a fare conversion chart).
According to some tourist’s reports, there exists several scams regarding taxi services from and to Mumbai Airport.
In order to avoid this kind of situations, please consider to ride a prepaid taxi since they are the official government taxis and have fixed fares. On the other hand, ask the driver for the fare prior your ride and check if the meter is turned on. We do not recommend to board unlicensed taxis since you are risking to be victim of a scam.
In case of being surcharged, please note down the license plate number and put an inquiry in the official tourism office.
Taxis can be found at both Domestic and International terminals. Prepaid taxi counter is located right before Customs, exiting terminal premises, on the right side.
