Terminal 1 metered taxi for 5 people

Friends, I am reasonably familiar with terminal 1 and the voucher versus metered taxis. When by myself I always take the metered taxi in the restricted area right outside of baggage claim. This time we are a group of 5, each with a roller-carry-on and a back-pack. I don't want to pay the crazily high voucher taxi prices. Does anyone know if the metered taxi line has bigger taxis to take my group size?

thanks

Maybe it will be crazy high and maybe it won't.

We got a really good deal for a van in the pre yellow taxis days from Nissan.

You could contact them for a quote in advance to see what they will charge now.

All metered taxis are sedan type so they can only accept 4 pax.

are you joking, you have 5 people and want to shove them into a meter taxi to save money with luggage. IT will not be allowed and your guests, who may have never been here before will not appreciate the hassle.The yellow do not have the bigger as does the coupon taxi. You have 5 to split the deal, so take coupon taxi, the difference split among 5 is negligible. I am not even sure if the bigger coupon will take 5 of you with luggage.

Hi Big_Jim_Leyte. I have emailed the website you mentioned. They will charge 1500 peso one way from Terminal 4 to Makati. Or return trip 2500 peso. We are a group of 5 going to Manila tomorrow.

If you are willing to take 2 taxis you will save at least 60% of that ₱1,500.

P1500 for one way?

Too much.

Take 2 taxis and it will most probably cost you <P1000.

Compared to the last time I used them, It is more than I thought they would charge!

Ajnd yes, you would expect to pay less in 2 taxis.

However, for convenience, all being together in one vehicle, all arriving together, there is still merit in paying it.

Just back from Manila yesterday. From Terminal 4 to Makati, we took mini van (applies to Toyota Innova too) using coupon at 530 peso, and paid 20 peso toll via skyway. Coming back to airport from hotel (arranged by hotel) it cost us 1200 peso.

Thankyou!

That is about what I was hoping Nissan would quote. They only charged us about P500 last time.

Which company was it?
