A Bahrain Airport taxi service is available outside the terminal.


Meters are required to be used, but they are usually hidden and must be asked (or demanded) to be turned on. 

 Bahrain Airport Taxi Scams

Taxis in Bahrain are not like the U.A.E. where they are regulated and will never rip you off. Sadly you name the scam and you will find 'most' of the taxi drivers you hail from a rank or on the street will try it. The meter will be hidden under a prayer hat, a box of tissues, a towel or cloth. The meters are in all official taxis and mounted on top of the dashboard.
