Wheelchair-accessible Langkawi taxi

Unfortunately, regular taxis in Langkawi can’t accommodate wheelchairs or mobility aids that cannot be stored in the trunk of the vehicle. Therefore, if that’s your desired kind of service, you must pre-arrange a larger vehicle through a private transfer company. When booking your accessible Langkawi taxi service, confirm all details and explain your requirements (ramps, lifts, safety straps etc.) beforehand to ensure a suitable vehicle is available when you need it.
