Airport Transfer

We are 2 women (mother and daughter 60, 21) traveling to Burma in December/January. I have just been quoted a heart stopping $90 PER PERSON for round trip airport transfers in each city we visit. That means $180 for Airport-Hotel-Airport x 5 = Almost $1000 for airport transfers. This sounds insane to me. Is it a misprint??? Will it be safe for us to get a taxi at the airport to our hotel in Yangon at 11pm? HELP!!!! I am shocked by the price I've been quoted.

Bagan(Nyaung Oo) taxi for airport transfer (2 times and from/to Old Bagan area) will cost 16 US$.

Mandalay taxi transfer (2 times and from/to 26th street-downtown area) will cost 40 US$.

Heho airport taxi transfer (2 times and from/to Nyaung Shwe) will cost 40 US$.

If you can't get taxi with those prices,you can contact to eversmile.ns.inle@gmail.com

Sound information here,ignore your Agents quotes-they are a rip off-and do what everyone else does and use local taxis.

That's crazy. You can just go out and get a cab at airports, or contact your hotels ahead of time. In either case it wont cost nearly that much, and cabs are not per person.

We will be visiting in Dec 2014 (will post the itinerary in an appropriate forum). I have been quoted the following prices for airport transfer. Going by the above messages (albeit slightly dated, prices might have gone up/down in the meantime) they look reasonable?

Yangon (US$ 15)

Bagan (US$ 7)

Nyaung Shwe (US$ 17)

Sittwe (US$ 17)

Mrauk U from jetty (US$ 17)

Or am I planning too much and rather take taxis. I assume taxis charge the right price?

I have heard of Agents quotes far,far higher ($30 for Yangon)

Cabs at Yangon are no more than $10 to downtown

Bagan is about right-I paid $5-$7

Heho to Nyaung Shwe sounds about right-I have heard the airport mafia asking for a lot more.

Sittwe and Mrauk U sound very expensive-a recent visitor may be able to advise but I would expect your hotel to arrange pickup
