Thanks for the chart its a great help. In previouse years we have traveled on our own an got a cab for two people down to Cavellosim. This year we are going with freinds, will we be able to get a large a/con 6 seater from the airport taxi booth and how much will it cost.....

Just back and we got a cab outside the terminal building at the booth. I watched the suitcases while OH paid and he came back and said that he was charged an extra 50rps for luggage. We were too tired to argue!

Response to #3: Pre-paid taxis are of the small car or small van types.

It would be hard to fit six people with luggage in a small van.

I will check with a few taxi driver friends and post again about the larger a/c van for 6 (with luggage).

Prices have gone up significantly since May, but that's to be expected. Still much cheaper than the resort prices back to the airport....

I small getting a bit jaded with the arguments with the taxi drivers about the definition of a functioning seatbelt after a long journey (will never take taxi unless all seatbelts working), also the unknown driving skills of the driver, that I have pre-ordered a taxi which belongs to a really good driver I know, even though my route is a bit out of his way. But, at least I can relax during the drive.

Response to post #3, for Ray:

I spoke to a few taxi drivers I know well, they said they can arrange a van since vans don't seem to be available at the airport. However, the vans are of the "Toyota Innova" and "Chevrolet Tavera" type, which may not be adequate for 6 people and luggage.

Larger vans or mini buses are harder to get hold of and would likely work out much more expensive.

You could consider hopping into 2 cabs, which are ok for 3 passengers each (the "Maruti WagonR" variety).

Hope this helps?

The prices have gone up since mid oct. then a non AC taxi to Varca was 630rps now according to the photo 735rps. We took the car from the outside booth, just wondering if the sign is from outside or the booth in the arrivals hall perhaps Joyti could tell us
