Official Kolkata Airport Taxi Details

Kolkata Airport Taxi

Kolkata Airport taxi photo

Inside the terminal you can purchase a pre-paid Kolkata Airport taxi ticket for between INR 250-400 (depending on destination). There will always be a queue for the pre-paid Kolkata Airport taxis.

 

Alternatively, regular Kolkata Airport taxi cabs wait outside the terminal as well, but these charge more and you may have to negotiate.

 

Depending on traffic, the trip will take anywhere between half an hour to two hours or more.

 

While in town, note that the meters inside the taxis are very old and the rates shown will be multiplied by a factor, you can ask to see the conversion sheet from the driver.

 

Your return trip to the Kolkata Airport will be about 25% higher than the pre-paid price from the airport.





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


 Kolkata Airport Taxi Scams


Touts


Touts operate at this airport and will try and prevent you from taking a pre-paid Kolkata Airport taxi. Their job will be to get you to take a taxi outside the Kolkata Airport at a much higher rate. This is not only unsafe (no record of the taxi will be taken), but you will pay a much higher rate. Do not go outside until you have your pre-paid ticket!

 

Luggage Helpers


These guys will 'assist' with your luggage from the Kolkata Airport to the taxi. They are not helpers at all and are just looking for a tip, to direct you to another taxi, or to steal your stuff. Carry your own luggage to the taxi and refuse help from anyone!
