I'm not sure what a metered taxi would cost. Private drivers would take 10-15JD or so, though it does sometimes fluctuate with gas prices. The ride should take 45-50 minutes max.

Don't base the cost on quotes for airport pickups, those always add in a bit extra for the driver having to sit and wait while people get their luggage and whatnot.

Yep, it has been a couple of months since I was there last. As I said in my last post, I know that rates fluctuate with gas prices, so I'm not surprised that it is a bit higher now. 20 is more than I would expect, but I'm not one to question it!

OP- Say it will be in the range of 15-25JD. As the taxis are metered (make them use it!), you won't need to worry about negotiating the best price. Just carry enough cash and use the change for random little souvenirs at the airport.

canuck I am glad your question has been answered

As it is known that taxis prices fluctuates with price of petro; add to that the fact that the taxi that drops you off at airport must return to amman with NO fare empty cos he can not take fare/passengers from airport.

so the money you pay pays foe two ways and not just 35 minutes ride to airport.

it is almost two hours of driving for taxi

I am not in defense of taxi i hate them they are cheats and a pest in Jordan who thrives on tourists. but I feel I must tell the truth about the industry.

cheers

greasy

It dsnt seem too long since you were in Amman

I can only guess the taxi you picked and took less than 20 must be living in a town along the road to airport where he can return home after the airport fare

cheers
