Taxi Fares to/from KLIA - how much?

Hi all, just wondering approx how much we'd expect to pay for a taxi from KLIA to the city? We used Green Path transfers on our recent stopover and the service was easy & hassle free but a bit pricey at AUD 135 for return transfers.

Just wondering if it will be just as easy to take taxis & if any cheaper?

Thanks, Steph

Prices ranged from 75myr for a budget taxi from KLIA2 but you will not find a taxi back to the airport for that price. Jumped in to a couple of taxis all didnt want there meter on and wanted 120 myr, settled for 90myr at the end.Apparently it is not easy for them when they go to the airport to grab another fare?

Hi My hotel has quoted me 265 MR for a one way journey to pick me up from the airport - that is expensive for a taxi, is it not?

If i go to the airprt counter and I get one there, is is quite simple? I am a solo traveller arriving in KL for the first time and am hoping for taxi transport that is relatively quick and simple and fairly cheap :)

RM265 one way is really expensive. You can get a taxi at the airport counter for far less than that. Alternatively you may consider taking the KLIA Express train to KL Sentral in the city (RM35 one way), then take a taxi from there.

@Cee_Cee_1234567890, the hotel's quote of RM265 is way too much!

The taxi rate from the airport is fixed. You go to the counter and tell them your destination and they will give you the standard rate. Be sure to ask for a budget taxi, otherwise they might suggest a premier taxi (a nicer car), which is more expensive.

Budget taxi fare is about RM80 to KL area.

A premier taxi which will take 2 people with lots of luggage, or 3 with a bit less and cost 105myr door to door. Most average tourists need a premier taxi.

The taxi back from the city to the airport will be a bit more

Train is 35myr a person, plus 25-40myr for a taxi which can work out more than a taxi!!

Andy yes its all covered in the fAQs!!

I went to a well set up booth after going through customs at about 11:30 in the morning.

MTC TRAVEL NETWORKS, they have a TOURISM MALAYSIA logo on their card.

They charged me 180myr gave me no receipt and handed me over to Raj who drove me to the KLCC in and old unmarked car, Beware.

Yeah, dumb thing to do,thought official booth government logo.

Advice, catch train, cheap, safe.

Avoid taxis, trains cover most of KL.

If the taxis get ignored,they might have to clean up their act. Or starve.
