 Pirate Kuala Lumpur Airport Taxi Serivce

Do NOT speak to any of these touts as they will con foreigners and will charge more than official airport taxis. You will also not be covered by insurance if an accident occurs.

You will be ripped off.



 Kuala Lumpur Airport Taxi Scams


Some cabs will tell you that there are no budget cabs available to try to convince you to take a premium taxi. Occasionally this is true, especially near midnight when the tariff jumps and cabs won't take jobs for half an hour or so before midnight.

 

While you are largely protected from unscrupulous taxi drivers by the pre-paid taxi ticket system at Kuala Lumpur Airport, here are some Malaysian taxi scams to be aware of while in the city:

  • Driver refuses to take you where you want (tip: don't tell the driver your destination before you get in the car)
  • Driver refuses to turn the meter on and quotes a rate, usually high 
  • Driver refuses to make change (expect this, and carry small bills)
