What are the Dammam Taxi Fares?

Although the local Dammam taxi drivers have taximeters fitted in their cars, they are usually not used. It’s most likely that your driver will give you a fixed fare based on where you want to go. There are average prices for journeys such as travelling from Dammam airport to the city (€21 (SAR 85)) and travelling from the Dammam Railway Station to the popular shopping malls (€10 (SAR 40)).

However, as the exact cost of your taxi in Dammam will be left up to your driver, you will not know exactly how much each ride will cost until the last minute. If you want the peace of mind a pre-arranged and pre-paid taxi offers, then it’s recommended to book in advance with a reliable company.
