Taxi Fares

Is there anyone who can advise on the likely taxi fare from Mahe Airport to the Ephelia Resort. We are told that we will have to haggle with the taxi drivers, which is fine if you have any idea of the likely cost. Our Tour Operator has quoted what appears to be an unrealitic price.

Taxis are stationed at the airport for all arriving and departing flights so there should be a taxi available past midnight too. If you want to be absolutely certain of your transfer you can contact your accommodation and ask them to pre-book a driver for you. This is best done very close to the date of travel. Bon voyage!

Hi there

Agree the fare in advance and limit it to say EUR25 for day time and 35 for the evening, that should well and truly cover the cost, although I have been there on occasions where the drivers have kind of made a pact not to reduce the cost.

Ephelia is reasonable transfer, around 30 minutes so it could be as much as EUR45, but no more than that.

Hi

I think i was quoted 50 Euro from airport to reach the hotel

guess a bit over priced

my only worry is to reach the airport at mid night and find no taxi around
