 Unofficial Hyderabad Airport Taxi Service or Hire Points


For a cheaper taxi, go to the departure gates, where you can get a cab that has just dropped off passengers. As these cabs would otherwise return to the city empty, drivers will usually drop you off in city for only INR 30. The same is true if you hail a taxi near Mehdipathnam, where the flyover starts.


Auto rickshaws are a good mode of transport to and from the Hyderabad Airport and to places close by. The auto rickshaws are found everywhere and are easily recognized by the yellow colour and three wheels. This vehicle is commonly referred to as just 'auto'. It has a canopy for cover and the driver sits in the front. There is usually a three seater at the back for passengers, though sometimes more people can be accommodated.

  • The auto runs by metre and the passenger is charged by the kilometre. 
  • Autos are popular as they are cheaper than taxis in Hyderabad. 
  • The auto metre starts from a minimum amount and after the minimum distance travelled, it starts ticking, adding the extra fare till you reach your destination.
  • Note: If you take a ride after 22:00, the auto driver will demand an extra fare of 'half return'. This means that if the meter displays INR 50, then an additional half amount, INR 25, will be added and you will have to pay the driver INR 75.
  • Most autos have a place at the back where you can keep some luggage. Make sure you do not leave anything behind when you get out.

 Hyderabad Airport Taxi Scams

Not a scam, per se, but don't be surprised to find yourself charged for a taxi parking fee. This is a new charge implemented in late 2014. Drivers are charged this fee each time they return to the airport, which they can ill-afford, resulting in protests and taxi strikes. The result is the taxi parking fee being passed onto passengers. You might also find drivers reluctant to take short ride fares.
