 Unofficial Irkutsk Airport Taxi Service or Hire Points


Every private vehicle you see effectively acts as a taxi if the price is right.

IHateTaxis.com has a mixed recommendation on the unofficial Irkutsk Airport taxi service.
Use your discretion to decide whether it is safe to ride with them or not. Here are some tips to consider:

  • Do not get into a vehicle with a passenger already in it
  • The shabbier the car, the less price the driver will ask for the ride
  • Make arrangements about the ride cost with the driver before you get in and pay only in RUB
