Taxi to Airpot

When we arrived we got a Meter Taxi from the airport to our hotel it cost us 500 now we are tying to arrange for one back and they are saying 800 . We would rather get a metered taxi and pay the 500 but there does not seem to be any around. Would we have to get our hotel to phone one.

Jayne, 600 baht to the airport (as mentioned in post 6).

And yes, the limited number of meter taxis in Phuket is courtesy of the 'private taxi' and tuk tuk Mafia.

Post 6, she was hoping it would turn up, which is why I wondered if it did & the actual cost.

Sounds good, I'll be asking around the local tour shops in future for fares to the airport

We asked a lot of drivers around the place even our hotel quoted 700 . The one that gave us 600 is just outside our hotel the Amata across from the big Christian Massage center there are two travel agents there but it is the one closes to the hotel that gave us the price. The other one quoted 800.
