Official Almaty Airport Taxi Rates & Fares
Taxis from the ALA Almaty Airport vary greatly in price. Any foreigner will be quoted a higher rate (USD 50) but usually taxis will come down once they see they are not going to be able to get that much. USD 50 is outlandish. Do not accept the first price as it will result in your being overcharged. It should be in the range of USD 10-15 / KZT 2000-2500, although it can never be guaranteed that a foreigner will get that price.
Drivers will also accept US Dollars.
Tipping optional: 5-10%

Almaty Airport Taxi Scams
Recently, there have been several occasions where someone with a sign with your name on it will meet you somewhere before you exit (in baggage claim or Passport Control). This person has copied the sign of the legitimate driver who is waiting for you after Customs Control. This driver will then escort you to his car and drive you halfway into town and drop you off. He will not take you the rest of the way unless you pay him several hundred dollars. Therefore, make sure you have some way to identify your driver other than a handmade sign.
