Transport from and to VTE and city

Are there fixed price taxis bookable at the airport that take one to the city? What is the cost? How much should I expect to pay to return to the airport?

Yes the price is fixed. There is a desk in the arrivals lounge near the front door.

They also take dollars if you haven't got kip when you arrive. It's $7 for a car and $8 for a van.

Thank you katieNotts. I have been to Vientiane before, but not by air. Does anyone know is it the same price returning to the airport, or is it cheaper?

Not sure. We went back to the airport in a tuk tuk. That's much cheaper!

Taxis from the city center to the airport for one to three persons is around 50,000 kip ($6 USD), a bit cheaper than the fixed prices at the airport. Tuk Tuks are just a bit cheaper than that. Don't hire a taxi from hotels, as they charge quite a premium.
