Seoul Gimpo Airport Taxi

Seoul Gimpo Airport taxi photo

Gimpo airport taxi service is available at the taxi platforms in front of the terminal building. You can either go to the short course taxi platform if you are travelling within the Gangseo and Yangcheon region, or the Intracity taxi platform. There are three types of Taxi to choose from: the Regular taxi is on Platform 1 in front of the terminal and the Deluxe taxi is on Platform 2. You can also get a Jumbo Taxi opposite the Regular taxi platform.


Taxi Types:


  • Standard taxi: Carries up to 4 passengers plus luggage and charges a base fare plus a metered price. A 20% surcharge is applied between 00:00 and 04:00.
  • Deluxe taxi: Also carries up to 4 passengers plus luggage, but is more spacious. Drivers must have a clean record (no accidents for at least 10 years) and have additional training. They may have better English skills. Fares are about 50% higher than standard taxis, but there is no night surcharge.
  • Jumbo taxi: Carries up to 9 passengers and works well for groups travelling together. These accept credit cards as payment.

 

Tip: whenever you take a taxi in Seoul, look for a car marked "International Taxi". These taxis are operated by the city, and have drivers that speak English and Japanese.

 Unofficial Seoul Gimpo Airport Taxi Service or Hire Points

 

Some drivers try to intercept passengers in the terminal or right outside; ignore them and head to the taxi stop. As in most countries, some unscrupulous drivers like to prey on foreigners just off the plane, so be especially careful when taking a taxi from the international terminals.


 
IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the unofficial Seoul Gimpo Airport taxi service.



 Seoul Gimpo Airport Taxi Scams


The most common taxi scams in Seoul are 'creative' use of the taxi fare calculator, and all manner of extra charges.

 

On the bright side, the city is cracking down and offers cash rewards to taxi anyone who reports dishonest cabbies, foreigners included. It's part of an effort to end the scamming of visitors to the city. To report a bad driver, call the Seoul Tourism hotline at 02-1330 (English). Be sure to get the driver's ID number: you could pocket the equivalent of several hundred USD.
