Taxi cost Tahiti

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the approximate cost of a taxi from the Papeete airport to the cruise dock?

Thanks

High prices, but no backing out now! The good news is if those prices are fixed. (Ty, dandee2) I've read little but horror stories about the cabs, with warnings to get price in advance. So are the prices fixed or could a printout of that post be used to set a price?

We just checked with the driver before we got in. Both with regard to price and acceptable form of payment.

Notice it's states "examples"

 

As suggested already ask for fare and form of payment. Usually they will accept Euro, Pacific Euro and USD. Exchange rate is very good now and who knows when that 'example' was printed.

FYI, I've never paid more the $20 USD from the airport to the dock and I've done it many many times ;)

I just got email confirmation from them that the fare indicated on their website are still valid in 2017 (no change since 2012)

Hummmmm ....

 

So the USD has gained 25% in value against the local currency in the last 5 years ..... and as most hopping into a cab pay in USD's why would they want to change the tariffs. If you pay in USD the current amount from the airport to the dock is around $18

The Canadian dollar has lost (-35%) against the US$ in the last 5 years. I'll wildraw XPF from the nearest ATM at the Aiport LOL
