Be careful!Rip-off in taxi counter at Denpasar Airport!!

Be careful if you paid at Taxi counter at Denpasar Airport.They are rip off sometime.We paid double price of the correct price in this time.

And I saw the driver put some money to another driver after we paid!!Be attention before you paid.Must check a correct price on official websile on Airport.

The official rates are outdated since the fuel price went up. For some reason the airport taxi company doesn't update their board or the website.

Sanur used to be 95.000 and is now 110.000

Ubud used to be 195.000 and is now 250.000 I have heard.

I think Kuta (Jl Kartika) was 55 000 last week. The guys at the rank did try to say 70 but I confirmed the destination with them and they said 'oh sorry' 55. I think they also do try and play a little on tourists, but are more easily corrected than others. Lou

So Sarah - welcome to the forum

Where were you going to and how much did you pay?

Are you aware that the flat rate taxi from the airport is more expensive than the return trip on the meter.

If you could share those details with us - we can tell you if they saw you coming - or if you get treated ok - and you were just not aware of what to expect.

Thanks
