Airport taxi voucher is fixed rate (about RM60)for a compact car for 3-4 pax. The voucher booth is on the right side after exiting immigration/customs.

Trip should be about 40-50 mins.

There is a local bus(Rapid) serving the island, but connecting from airport to Batu Ferringhi will be too time-consuming due to the transfers, bus timing/waiting time at the bus stand.

dss is correct - get a taxi when you arrive.

Even Rapid Bus will take ages as you need to get to the Quay and change... journey time would be about 1.5 hours ++

We just returned from Penang and stayed at Golden Sands as well. As DSS said, its 60MYR by cab and about 50 min drive. Have fun!
