Cost of taxi from airport to city - fixed or metered?

Have just spent 450000VND on a Mai Linh taxi from the airport - metered - but people are saying that it should cost 200-300000VND. Should I be arranging a rate with a taxi driver before heading back out to the airport, or is the metered fare what you should pay?? Just wondering if it is anything like Nha Trang where it is a fixed rate from the airport to town, despite what the meter says.

Why not take the VN airlines bus on your return journey to the airport? I'm not sure whether it still does hotel pick-ups but it's worth checking.

I was going to also suggest the VN Air bus, but CB apparently got up earlier than me this am!

Yep - good idea. Have just got the hotel to arrange the shuttle and they will pick us up and take us to the airport for 40000VND each - bargain!
