 Manila Clark Airport Taxi Scams

While Manila Clark Airport is a long distance from Manila proper, you should be aware of common Manila taxi scams, in case you get a clever driver, or simply to protect yourself later in your journey.


  • In September 2014, a new Manila taxii scam emerged in which the car's motor dies, forcing the driver to pull over. After checking under the hood, the driver beckons for his passenger to get out, to observe or assist in some way. Once the passenger is outside the taxi, the driver gets back in, miraculously starts the engine, and speeds off with the passenger's luggage and possessions, leaving the passenger stranded. The entire incident takes place in a colorum (illegal) taxi, and is facilitated by a hidden switch which turns the engine off and on. Tip: whatever happens, do not get out of your taxi, or if you must, take your carry-on items with you.
  • In February 2014, an Austrian tourist was robbed by a yellow taxi driver. She was robbed of her purse, iPhone and a substantial amount of cash. Tip: to prevent being a target, take a coupon or radio taxi, don't flash your technical gadgets and be discrete with cash. 
  • Other Manila airport taxi scams include non-metered transactions (the driver will try to negotiate price fare, he will exaggerate the distance and traffic, and misquote costs. He will claim that passenger would get to save more compared to the metered travel.) These are attempted scams. Always insist on the meter being turned on. If the driver does not put on the meter, tell him that you call going to call the police if he does not put it on immediately. This should work. If not, insist on stopping the taxi, get your luggage out and look for another taxi.
