Cost of a Taxi in Jeddah

The local Jeddah taxi drivers give set-rate fares based on where you’re travelling to in the city and the time they think it will take. You may find that your driver will charge you higher fees during Ramadan or if you seem unfamiliar with the city. Feel free to negotiate with your driver if you don’t like the first price they give, as haggling is pretty common.
