Pirate Seoul Incheon Airport Taxi Serivce
Touts may approach passengers in the ICN Airport International Arrivals areas offering taxi services. Remember that for a standard taxi, including tolls, should run about KRW 53,000 and about 50% higher for deluxe taxis. These touts may offer Incheon Airport to Seoul service for about KRW 150,000, or 3x the standard price! Apparently this has developed into a gang situation and you should steer well clear of even the thought of discussion of taking a taxi service that has been organized by a tout into town. Regular taxi drivers have also been injured due to the activity of touts.
IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the pirate Seoul Incheon Airport taxi service.
We strongly do not recommend this option, regardless of the situation! Use official taxi services only and do not discuss services with touts as you could place yourself and others into danger and if you use their services, you are being grossly overcharged and contributing to gang activity.
Seoul Incheon 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.
