Hurghada taxi prices

Taxis in Egypt are said to be some of the cheapest in the world, but they are also poorly regulated and the local taxis in Hurghada are no exception. Depending on the driver you come across, official taximeters might not always be used and there is little evidence in the way of set rates. Due to this, to avoid any surprises and overcharges, try to negotiate the price when taking a taxi in Hurghada. Taxi fares are calculated as follows:

Base fare: €0.30 (EGP 10)

Rate/per km: €0.089 (EGP 3)

Waiting fee per hour: €0.74 (EGP 25)

The actual taxi fare might differ due to the time of day, tolls and available routes. Having said that, you can always ask someone at your hotel or resort for a cost estimate, or book in advance with a trusted company like Welcome Pickups to avoid hidden fees and enjoy a reliable and stress-free experience.

How to get a taxi in Hurghada

As there is no public transportation in Hurghada, taxis are readily available everywhere you go. There are so many that at first, it can seem a bit overwhelming dealing with the sea of orange and blue coloured cars. You can hail a local taxi from the street, or contact one of the many taxi service companies that can be reached by phone or via WhatsApp.

Because taxis are poorly regulated, ask around to find out how much the trip should cost to avoid being overcharged. Based on that, make sure you have enough cash and small bills on you to pay the fare, as most local taxis do not accept credit cards and can’t break larger notes.

If you want to call for a taxi or book one in advance, you can get in touch with some of the more established local companies in the numbers below.

Hurghada taxi safety and complaints

Hurghada is generally considered to be a safe destination for tourists. As taxis are poorly regulated in Egypt, however, when dealing with local taxis, travellers are advised to keep an eye on the taximeter or agree on a set price beforehand, sit in the back of the vehicle and to choose a trusted company whenever possible.

All taxis should have the driver’s number in the window and a company phone number underneath it, which you can reach should you have any complaints. Moreover you can always make a formal complaint to the Tourist Police. In order to do this, make sure to take photos or jot down the license plates of the taxi, as well as the driver’s name if possible.

You can reach the Hurghada Tourist Police at the following numbers:

+20 065 344 4774 (Ad-Dahar)
+20 065 344 4773 (Resort Strip)

Should you not be able to reach someone, you can go to the station by following the directions on Google Maps or a similar app.
