I wonder why everyone is not using "Coupon Taxi". Everyone thinks they are the highest, but since the traffic jam is getting worse and worse (I do have experience not able to reach skyway entry half an hour after the cab started which should be less than 500 meters away..) fixed price coupon taxi is not a bad option. They get rid of rip-offs and usually cheaper than other taxis. Grab is also a good option, but when the Jam is too bad, the dirvers do not respond to a request.

I hailed Yellow cab at Manila International Airport terminal 2, destination Parkside Villas but the driver couldn’t find, walked last kilometer, about 20 minute ride in traffic: cost 1,900 pesos. Returned in similar traffic with Grab, cost 320 pesos. Avoid this company, they are a rip-off! Take White cab for such short distance! They should not have exclusive airport access. Who got paid off? Driver makes less than 20% of fare! Not Fair!
Passenger on Nov 04, 2019:
I paid 822 pesos with a yellow airport taxi from NAIA terminal 1 to the Venice Grand Canal on a Sunday night at 11:50 PM. I think I got taken for a ride. A white taxi would have been 250 p, but they don't allow them in the arrival area.

SCAMMERS on Oct 20, 2019:
I got into a scam at the airport. Told the taxi driver where to go to. I knew from google maps it's 2km from the airport. 1 road really.

I asked the driver, you know where it is right?

Once in the car, a 2nd guy stepped in and they started to argue if I know where I want to go to.
I gave them the exact street and housenumber.

After a few minutes it already said 500Pesos on the meter!
"Taxi 1hour Waiting (Normal Tariff) 120.00 ₱ " is thus a lie!

Anyway, obviously scam so I got out..

the 2 guys also got out and I pointed out to them: If you wanna fight, draw a straw, because I'm not afraid dying here today, I will fight for freedom and rights and justice and die for it, but draw the straw which one of you is coming with me into the grave, make your pick!

They backed off when they figured I was serious ( and I am! I honestly don't mind fighting for justice and freedom, if they wanna have it, they can..)

Anyway, if you're NOT prepared to fight for justice and freedom. DO NOT USE TAXI in Manila.

get Grab! And ALWAYS use Grabpay.. don't do cash.. NEVER!!!
If the driver tells you he only accepts cash, you answer that's ok sir, I'll call support right now that you violate Grab regulations.

My advise, keep everything digital, make pictures and screenshots of everything even locations of the car coming to you.. skip taxi, skip cash.. all digital only!

And no, this is NOT because 99% of the Philippines are criminals. That's NOT true!
Most of honest righteous people, including most taxi and grab drivers..

BUT that 1% trying to rip you off, trying to steal from you or even ready to kill you...
rest assured they will!!

You best protection is having all data stored digital in the cloud, so police, grab and other companies ALWAYS know about you, what happened to you, where you are..

You tell the criminals, you are under constant surveillance, you are being tracked online by companies, your family and relatives who have location sharing.
Point out the picture you just made, is already on the apply cloud and that's AUTOMATICALLY shared with the cloud of your relatives so they automatically have the picture in their cloud so even stealing the phone from you and deleting from your cloud won't help them..

and they let you go..

that's how simple it works.. make sure you point out, all their data is already shared among your friends and relative.. if something happens to you, the last person your friends and relatives will see on the picture is their faces which the police will be happy to investigate of course.

Because the ONE THING criminals don't want: "being identified"

Omg, The airport taxi charged me 48$ from terminal 1 to terminal 3.
So awful experience.
Dan on Jul 30, 2019:
The rates indicated appear to be correct, but, fail to account for the fact that during 2018, the wait fee changed to become a travel time fee (P2/minute whether moving or not). So, for the table, you need to add travel time * P2.

e.g. a 1hr 10km journey should cost P295, not the P175 show in the table as that doesn't include any travel time.

TAXI FARES...THE END GAME..

Keep initial slip (IMPORTANT) at airport or let the taxi driver c u take a picture

When u arrive, tell the taxi driver that u need to check the booking with the hotel. Take ur luggage with you into reception
Go back to taxi and show the taxi driver the predicted fare (typically 50% of what he wants to charge you)

Tell the taxi driver you dont have the cash to pay both the hotel and the taxi for obvious reasons

Ask him if he will give u a reciept. If he declines he is as guilty as hell. If he agrees he just gulity). If he still wants to argue leave the predicted money + tip on passenger seat and check in. NEVER pay more than the GRAB price + tolls.

Dont get lost in detail. Everyone already knows that all airport meters are doctored.

Let the driver do the arguing and head for the shower. At this point the taxi driver will be thinking about his next fare

ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT YOUR DESTINATION AND YOU HAVE YOUR LUGGAGE YOU HAVE THE NEGOTIATING INITIATIVE. THE TAXI DRIVER WILL FEELING INSECURE.

Its just game, relax and enjoy.

It helps to have a copy of full hotel address and a copy of estimated price table and a note the the start and finish times.

Who should we contact when we have to file a complaint against the regular taxis in the airport? Thanks
Muneer Hussain on Apr 22, 2019:
The best thing or the best way of move and traveling in Manila is by booking a "GRAB TAXI" it's very cheap and convenient.You won't have to pay for the waiting charges unlike the other local taxis. The local taxis would take a longer route to extract more money from your pocket and choosing the busy roads.
Aiyce on Mar 25, 2019:
The rate indicated above is correct. What we guys need to watch out for is the Php2.00/1minute of waiting time [taxi is on a stop mode] rate. I had an experience of riding on a stop and noticed that in 5minutes, the meter added 20pesos when it was supposed to be just 10pesos considering only 5minutes has passed. Then i looked closer at the timer in the taxi meter, it was faster than the usual speed when you count in seconds. I used the stopwatch on my phone to compare. I clicked start when the timer of the meter is at xx.00. When the meter ended at minutes.59 seconds, the stopwatch on my phone is only at 30seconds. This makes sense on why my meter is running so fast. I caught the attention of the taxi driver and he denied my accusations. 3mins had passed from where we stopped on the red light, and I was again charged 12pesos. So i told the driver that I will get off the ride when we reach the intersection. Just a round trip from SM Makati [front of Crate and Barrel] to Telus McKinley Exchange, I paid 90pesos. #disappointed.
Junard edison Jaluag on Mar 21, 2019:
As i was wondered how the taxi meter jumped its fares sometines an additional 2pesos and as i calculated sometimes 10pesos, i can no longer control but asked the driver how the taxi meter works. He informed me that in every kilometer an additional 13pesos be added besides an additional 2pesos in every kilometer. Further, he explained that the taxi reciept will explain an explanation.but still his explanation did not convince me. I ended an eight kilometers ride for a 202 pesos fare. I was so skeptical about what i pay thus i decided to search a taxi fare computation. I discovered that a distance of 8km costs 148pesos only. Thus i was robbed by at most 60pesos. How i wish i can attach here the receipt.

I regularly rde taxi from terminal 4 to del pilar st cor. quintos st. (landbank) about 7 kilometers in distance. I used to pay 120 to 140 pesos only but today I was charged 231 pesos by taxi with plate no. ABD 8349. The driver said it was because his taxi meter is already calibrated...Is that true?

I got in EFE taxi WA3197 in early Aug 21, 2018, to travel from Eastwood to Remigio St Manila. And got surprised of the initial rate. I know it is P3.50 after the standard plug down rate of 40.00. But this taxi's meter seem to be tampered. The rate went P2.00 for 2 succeeding reading then followed by P3.50.
And before I dropped off the cab the meter jumped from P250 to P268. Is there anyonw from LTFRB who can do something about this driver/cab operator.
Lakas mandaya na kapwa nila, sila dahilan bat wala nang kampante sa mga taxi ngayon e. Sana magawan ng paraan.

From 220 to 350 pesos taxi fare 1 way. grabe naman yun tinaas ng taxi fare! This is just for 12km long na 1 hr travel. Para ka na rin nag-grab car.
Maybe need to revisit this new fare scheme. Baka dapat alisin na flat rate or bawasan yun 13.50 pesos per km.
Naman...

To those who will ride yellow metered taxi in terminal 2, be alert. Taxi drivers are tricky. After you sit in back seat, they will talk to entertain and later you will see the f...ing fare jumped to a 5x price. It just happened to me last night. Then he pretended he didnt know the way and entered a one way road and of course the fee gets higher. I asked for receipt and said its not working. F..k

Ph taxi drivers have moduses. My advice is get a local police number before riding one if ever the prices spike. Its unfair for our beloved tourists who enjoy staying here in the Philippines.
Timothy Takemoto on Mar 13, 2018:
I am white (or at least clearly not Filipino) and most times I take a taxi there is a sort of negotiation war where the taxi driver wants me to pay a flat fee of anything between 2 to 10 times the meter rate, whereas I want to pay about 1.5-2 times the meter (generally for a typical short taxi ride of about 50-60 peson I let the driver keep the changer from 100). I can understand in part where the taxi drivers are coming from. My disposable income may be ten times that of most of their customers. But at the same time, I come to the Philippines partly because it is inexpensive, and transport is not that in expensive due to the differences in public transport, and anyway, I am not keen on being charged by my looks, or income, in this way. What is to be done? Perhaps those without a national residents permit should be told up front that they will be paying X times the meter? At least then there would be no war. Taxi drivers get pissed off with me for insisting on the meter. I get pissed of with them for ripping me off or getting pissed off with me. It makes the Philippines no fun.

Hello Folks! I'm a local here in Metro Manila ,My partner is a foreigner and I can relate with you and im b5555 pissed of with those wa-n-gkas if you have questions about the routes in Makati, Mandaluyong area feel free to ask
About the taxi driver if you landed in NAIA3 they have a silly queue for regular taxi and it might take your tiem if they ask for plus fifty tough !! but make sure that your fair won't exceed for for that 300 if your heading to Makati Area or Mandaluyong if its outside the mentioned place then its a different issue,Note; Telll the driver metered only if they ask for plus 50php and your place that your staying at is very near never mind but if you in a hurry no choice grrr!!!!! and if they offer such a ridiculous price just tell them metered only and if they insit just tell them its always traffic in metro manila "KUYA" EXCEPT on Sunday.your other option is to take a bus but if you have some questions feel free to sent me an email Here's my account jekpre28atgmaildot. Hope that I can help:)

I've ridden in 5 taxis over the past 2 days and have had no problem. I am half white and half Filipino...I can speak Tagalog enough to get around but I spoke English to my mom in the taxi. No one tried to take advantage of me. I rode a yellow one from the airport to my hotel and 4 white ones to/from a supermarket nearby. The yellow taxi charged me 118 pesos and the white ones were consistently 50 pesos. They were walkable distances but we had a lot of stuff to carry and it was hot. It probably helped that I had Google maps open and following where we were being driven. My biggest problem was they didn't seem very knowledgeable about the area...I'm not from here so I have to do research before we go somewhere or even while I'm in the taxi.
#kristine on May 10, 2017:
This is very annoying! A taxi driver give me an optional to get another cab for us to transfer but this is Goddamn it! It was very terribly seen those fellow filipino who is very greedy. We are in hurry to go in our office but it seems like he was in trouble looking up for alibi's so he would get and make scene. He said that he is an taxi airport while where in the cab and he should already knew before we get in, he will inform us late he doesnt give me any idea about it. From buendia to cash and carry he charges 250php he get an optional he told us to get new cab and transfer and that's bulls**t and he said if we headed from our exact location he will charge for almost 2500php what kind of human are you? It is much convinience for uber cars than this taxi cab, I hate this happening. Please put attention and help others and it will not happen again. Tip before you ride taxi check plate number, contact of the company, driver's ID etc so we can spread and post thru social media.
chris on Apr 17, 2017:
can top this; at 4th of April I arrived at T3 and asked the yellow cab driver how much is it up to QC, SM Nova; he told me a price up to 900 PHP - which is quite a lot but it was real early morning so I accepted. Arrived at SM Love where my Friends wold like to pickle up he told me because of the heavy traffic he had to uprise the price to 3300 PHP - oherwise he will not hand of me my backpack (Camera, Laptop and so on) so I accepted. After all: use Uber to Grab, all Cab Drivers are robbers

Ecyoj on Apr 11, 2017:
Avail the ""COUPON TAXI"" in any Manila Airport Terminals, (THERES A GREEN BOARD WITH THE LIST OF PLACES AND THE EXACT FARE FOR YOUR REFERENCE, T3 Arrival area opposite *BAY 8*) if you're lucky and no other passengers the dispatcher will give you the receipt and pay the fare to the driver upon reaching your destination. If not you need to queue for atleast 30mins. or more it depends/vary with the airport coupon taxi AVAILABILITY.
Example:Terminal 3 going to Antipolo Rizal (Airport Coupon Taxi) = *790 pesos* {24.1km}
I have been travelling on off oversea and this the only mode of transportation I always used. Sometimes I need to queue longer when theres alot of passengers in front of me, nevertheless I think its much much cheaper compare to those people whos trying to con even their own countrymen. Its indeed such a disgrace specially for those foreign tourists who just want to spend their holiday here in Philippines and ended up being scammed. Please be aware and extra cautious....

Rode a white taxi today from naia 3 to pasig. He explained that 100m = 10pesos. I was not able to reach pasig city since at c5 we were already travelling 5.4km which is equivalent to 540pesos and my usual fare is only 200. He mentioned that they pay 100 to "i do not know who" as commission. I ended up paying 390 pesos,got out of the taxi, rode a jeepney which is 8pesos to market market and then fx which is 20pesos. I'm never gonna ride a taxi from naia again. Just take the airport loop bus to taft.
Frank on Jan 31, 2017:
Was almost scammed at NAIA terminal 3 going to Ermita, was approached at foreign exchange by a guy who "flashed" credentials and asked if I needed a taxi, we proceeded to the taxi area where he was on a handheld radio calling my "taxi" he tried to get me to sign a receipt which had no amount on it, when the car pulled up a second guy told me to pay the first guy and sign the receipt which now had 3500P on it. They quickly loaded my luggage into the car and closed the door, I told them no way get my bags out of the car they said ok ok just pay 1200p. There were 2 police nearby directing traffic, I said get my bags out now or i'm going to the police, and walked toward the police, the door opened instantly and my bags came out. Just then a real taxi pulled up, I loaded my bags and paid him P600 which was high but fair. USE UBER!!! Uber fare back to the airport was P165!
