You can purchase a pre-paid taxi coupon inside the SZB Subang Airport Arrivals hall before heading outside to catch a taxi to town. For the return trip, drivers may either use the meter (rates below) or try to set a fixed price that is about 1.5 times the rate you paid to get from the airport. Note that premium taxis are more expensive (usually 1.5-2 times the price), but more spacious, especially important if you have a lot of luggage.

In Kuala Lumpur the taxis rates are, including trips back to the SZB Subang Airport:

First 2 kilometres MYR 2
Per 200 metres thereafter MYR 0.10

Arrive or depart stress-free at the Subang Airport by pre-booking your private Subang Airport transfer.
See our Subang Airport private transfer options page for more information and pricing.

 Pirate Subang Airport Taxi Serivce


Pirate taxis operate at the SZB Subang Airport and expect to be approached by touts offering taxi services. Do NOT speak to any of these touts as they will con foreigners and will charge more than official SZB Subang Airport taxis. You will also not be covered by insurance if an accident occurs.

IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the pirate Subang Airport taxi service.

Pirate taxis will be more expensive than the official ones.

 Subang 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 Subang 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)
