Official Hua Lamphong Train Station Taxi Details

Hua Lamphong Train Station Taxi

Hua Lamphong Train Station taxi photo

Taxis may be hired anywhere in front of Hua Lamphong Train Station or to the right when exiting the station. Taxi drivers tend to demand a fixed price, which is never in your best interest, from people exiting the station and having extra luggage from the train station doesn't help you.


Your best bet is to either ask several taxis for "meter?" before getting in or walk a bit from the station, although many taxi drivers know this trick and will still demand a fixed price. Many Thai locals experience the same demands from drivers, so consider taking the Subway     from the Hua Lamphong Train Station to another station and catch a taxi from there if necessary.




 Pirate Hua Lamphong Train Station Taxi Serivce

 

Expect to be approached by touts as you exit the station. Their job is to ensure that you get ripped off with a fixed-fare taxi to your destination. Go and find your own taxi and negotiate directly with the driver if they refuse to use the meter.



 
IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the pirate Hua Lamphong Train Station taxi service.

Although these will be 'official taxis', you will be ripped off by the tout.



 Hua Lamphong Train Station Taxi Scams


SAFETY CAUTION: In July 2013, a Bangkok taxi driver was arrested and charged in the killing of an American passenger over a fare dispute. At this point, few details are available, however IHateTaxis advises extreme caution when taking taxis in Bangkok. 

 

TAXI SCAMS

 

Unfortunately Bangkok hosts lots of taxi scams, mostly due to tourists falling for them. We at IHT have personally experienced several and these are the most common ones. If you appear to taxi drivers as having been to Bangkok before and know the scams, then you are less likely to be scammed, but keep your eyes and ears open to avoid these:

 

No Meter


The driver will claim that the meter is broken so that he can set a fixed price which will be much higher than the metered fare. Use the fare guide above if your driver is playing this game or get out of the taxi. Insist on meter use before you or any of your luggage is placed in the cab.


Re-Negotiation of Price


This is very common. You have apparently agreed to a price and the taxi drives away and minutes later a new price is demanded. You can either re-state the original price or stop the taxi and motion to leave without paying, which may re-establish the original price.


Meter Jumps


Be aware that drivers may bump the meter rate when you are not looking. Try to avoid falling asleep on the ride. Also if the driver needs to stop for fuel, the meter should be stopped or turned off while fueling. Try to note the fare before the meter is turned off and when the car is re-started (if it is turned off during re-fueling) the meter rate should be where it was before.


Not Allowed, Prohibited, etc


If you hear these, they are likely trying to get you to agree to a rip-off rate. If negotiating does not work then just wait for another taxi (don't worry, there are lots!).
