 Sultan Abdul Halim Airport Taxi Scams


Some cabs will tell you that there are no budget cabs available to try to convince you to take a premium taxi. Occasionally this is true, especially near midnight when the tariff jumps and cabs won't take jobs for half an hour or so before midnight.

 

While you are largely protected from unscrupulous taxi drivers by the pre-paid taxi ticket system at Sultan Abdul Halim Airport, here are some Malaysian taxi scams to be aware of while in the city:

  • Driver refuses to take you where you want (tip: don't tell the driver your destination before you get in the car)
  • Driver refuses to turn the meter on and quotes a rate, usually high¬†
  • Driver refuses to make change (expect this, and carry small bills)
