How much is a Penang Airport Taxi?

Most Penang airport taxis neither offer set rates nor use the mandatory taximeters. Instead, the local taxi drivers rely on haggling, which means that the cost of a Penang airport taxi can vary depending on the operator, as well as your destination, the time of day, and the duration of the ride. The average Penang airport transfer takes about 30 minutes to reach the George Town city centre and costs an estimated €16 (MYR 73.70). To ensure competitive fixed rates with a professional English-speaking driver and no hidden fees, you can always book your transfer in advance with Welcome.
