 Brisbane Airport Taxi Scams

There are a couple of ongoing scams you should watch for at Brisbane Airport:


  • The taxi driver takes you the long way around to your destination therefore raising the fare unnecessarily. It is best to act like you know the streets well, with the odd pretend confidence comment of 'um, where are we going?!'. Or better yet familiarize yourself with a map or GPS so that you can follow along as they drive you to your destination.
  • The taxi meter magically jumps a few dollars and or the meter and the final bill do not match up. The driver should not charge more than what you see on the little screen, so ask the driver why he/she is adding an extra fee at the end of the ride. It is better to pay with cash, if you pay with a credit card or debit card, they will charge 10% more.
