Official Mumbai Airport Taxi Details

Mumbai Airport Taxi

Mumbai Airport taxi photo

Mumbai Airport taxis are the only practical way of getting to and from Mumbai Airport, unless you have you own transport or are staying at a hotel which offers transfers for guests. For the first time visitor to India, the taxi system is extremely daunting, with multitudes of honking taxis all competing for trade. In addition, Autorickshaws (Tuk-tuks) can provide less comfortable transfers at a cheaper price, but are prohibited from entering Mumbai city limits.

Pre-paid Mumbai Airport taxi booths are located at the International terminals 2A and 2C, and their use is recommended as it circumvents possible arguing over prices later. The staff at these booths issue a ticket which you pay cash for. You are then taken to your Mumbai Airport taxi and driven to your destination. No further payment is required or expected. These pre-paid Mumbai Airport taxi booths are not available at the domestic terminals.

From the domestic terminals, taxis wait outside. Make sure the meter is used and that it is set to INR 1/00 at the start. It seems the correct price to pay is around 13 times that shown on the meter, but this is liable to change over time.

When catching taxis from the city to the BOM Mumbai International Airport, expect to pay similar fares to those shown above. Be aware that traffic in Mumbai can be appalling and transfer times from Colaba to the airport can range from 45 minutes to 2 hours.

Arrive or depart stress-free at the Mumbai Airport by pre-booking your private Mumbai Airport transfer.
See our Mumbai Airport private transfer options page for more information and pricing.

 Pirate Mumbai Airport Taxi Serivce


Someone claiming to be a Mumbai Airport taxi driver when they are not may charge much higher prices designed to target tourists. The charges will depend on the general area you need to get to and will include all tolls to be paid. Most premium hotels will organize their own cars which is a much better alternative.

IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the pirate Mumbai Airport taxi service.

Do not accept a lift from someone claiming to be a Mumbai Airport taxi driver when they are not.

 Mumbai Airport Taxi Scams

When you are returning to Mumbai Airport, if you take a taxi, be aware that when your cab pulls up at departures, more likely than not, a man will unload your luggage from the trunk, load it on a cart, and push it towards the terminal - and ask you for a INR 500+ baggage fee. But, there is no baggage fee! Just decline the offer, take over the cart and push it away yourself.
