Da Nang taxi prices
The cost of a taxi in Da Nang is quite reasonable and the taxi rates are set by the cities or districts. The Da Nang taxi rates were last set in January 2017 and are enforced via the use of calibrated taximeters. Passengers should therefore ensure that the taximeter in the vehicle is turned on at the start of the transfer, to avoid any disputes regarding the fare. The current Da Nang taxi rates are as follows:
Initial base fee: €0.35 (VND 8,500)
Per km cost: €0.40 (VND 10,000)
Waiting time – charge per hour: from €1 (VND 25,000)
Night rates are the same as day rates, so transfers should not cost more when using taxis in the after-hours. Fixed-rate fares are also an option but must be negotiated when booking in advance – either via your hotel or directly with a taxi representative because most drivers do not speak English.
