Manila Airport Taxis

How much does it cost from the airport to Makati by taxi?

Heard so many reports about taxis and traffic in Manila.

I am staying at the Intercontinental Hotel and arrive in Manila on a Saturday afternoon.

800P is reasonable if you use private airport taxi service...better vehicles and far more comfortable and professional...I wouldn't do it any other way.

If you spend P800 as noted you have just been ripped off Its about x3 what a yellow tax will charge and perhaps x2 of a coupon. This is not a good idea

I also strongly suggest to download the grabtaxi app onto your phone. On arrival if your phone will work in the Philippines its really great. I use it often and used it at the airport the day the USA president landed with heavy traffic and bypassed the long taxi lines. Its really a great app to use here. Fares will be about P70 more on a local meter taxi that you will have to get you upstairs at departures. I used it last at term 3, but use it locally almost daily

Hi folks,

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 kids arriving from Boracay to Manila NAIA Terminal 3 by Phillipine Airlines flight on next Saturday morning.

I will need a taxi to accomodate my family with 3 small carry-ons luggages.

Please advise us on taxi services available in Terminal 3; yellow cab versus prebooked cab and where these taxi counters are located.

Warmest regards.

Once you exit the arrival hall, turn right and walk. You will see both coupon first and than meter taxi queue.

I have found T3 to have huge taxi queues (never seen a queue in T1) - but it might just be time of day. If it's raining and rush hour, you may have to wait.

Where in Mandaluyong? That's the correct amount for a coupon taxi specially in territory of Mandaluyong which is farthest from the airport.
