taxi from airport to Sanur

My hotel in Sanur has quoted me 150,000 Rup, for a taxi from the airport. Is this reasonable? Judging by the wording in the e-mail I am guessing that they would rather not do it.

Are taxis readily available and safe to be had at the airport,

Taxis are readily available at the airport and will cost you Rp 95,000 to Sanur.

the taxis at the airport are 'set' price. As already mentioned it is 95,000rp to sanur. You can exchange some money at the airport money changers, (the rate is only a small difference compared to the money changers on the street). Once you pass the money changers and exit the airport door just turn right and you will soon see the taxi booking counter. Pre pay here and you will be allocated a driver.

At the window of the taxi counter you will see a laminated note saying that you have to pay your driver, not the booth.

However, I have seen the taxi counter taking money.

If the person at the taxi counter tells you to pay the driver make sure they are clear on what the price will be before you get in the car. It is a fixed price and to Sanur should be 95.000 as Sooky mentioned. You can also pay the meter price if you prefer.

I've never had to pay the driver directly, I've always paid at the counter and then given a voucher and allocated a driver.

it is prepaid at the counter. The prices are advertised on the board inside the booking office. There is no paying the driver or negotiating a price.

There are however some drivers (not official taxis) close to the exit who will offer you transport at rather inflated prices. Go directly to the booking counter and pay the advertised 95,000rp.

Yes, to make it all more confusing they clearly state at the counter that payment is made direct to the driver although this doesn't necessarily happen.

It is cheaper to get to the airport from Sanur. The price from the airport is slightly higher and these set prices cover drop off to all areas within sanur and the fees charged for the drivers to enter the airport. You will often find when you pay someone to take you to the airport you pay a fee to cover the drivers costs to enter the airport.
