It is quite difficult to explain with a driver in a Cairo taxi - not all of them are English-speaking and know the city very well. This means that when trying to explain to the driver the destination you need, he needs to indicate a known landmark in the required area (prepare a leaflet with information written on it in Arabic in advance - locals or hotel staff can come to help). Tip: if you do not want to overpay, do not get into cars waiting for potential customers outside restaurants and hotels..

Water taxi in Cairo

Those who wish can take a ride on a water taxi on the Nile River: it is easy to distinguish it from a tourist tram - such a taxi is equipped with checkers. It is worth noting that the trip by river taxi takes 45 minutes - it departs from the port in Qanater al-Hayriyah and docks in the Helwan area (15 stops are made), and the fare is the same as for a regular taxi.

Taxi cost in Cairo

How much does a taxi cost in Cairo interests everyone who rests in the capital of Egypt. You can navigate prices using the following information:

  • boarding costs passengers 3 pounds;
  • 1 km of track is charged at a price of 1 pound;
  • the night rate is 40-50% more expensive than the day rate.

On average, a short trip within the same area costs £ 6, from the center to the pyramids - 15-20 pounds, and from the airport to the center of Cairo - 70 pounds. If during the trip the driver will add more passengers to you, then the fare in this case should be divided among all passengers. Advice: before the trip, you should stock up on small bills to pay for the taxi fare (as a rule, the drivers do not have change).

If you are planning to take a taxi on long trips, it is advisable to ask the driver to wait for you, since it will be extremely difficult to stop a taxi ready to take you back (you can reward with a small monetary reward for waiting for the driver).

If you are interested in a service such as car rental with a driver, then you should know that it will cost you 160-180 pounds / 6 hours.
