Rajiv Gandhi Hyderabad International Airport – Taxi

One of the most comfortable and also exclusive ways to get to the city centre or to your final destination.

According to your preferences, you can ride it instead of auto rickshaws, since they are ideal for short-distance trips and cheaper than taxis.

They are less safer than taxis. If you carry lots of luggage, maybe is not the most suitable option for you. You can negotiate fares the driver, anyway.


Taxis are available outside the terminal building at the taxi lines.

Book a taxi

You can choose to pre-order your taxi once you get to the airport. If you are staying in a hotel or in a guest house, you may ask them to book a taxi for you.

We really recommend this option since it is safe and could be cheaper than riding a taxi without any reservation.

Fares must be paid in advance at a desk in the Arrivals hall before riding a taxi. They are prefixed based on the location.

Even though, some companies do not let book trips in advance, but you can book the trips to the airport instead. Please ask for more information to each taxi company.

Taxi Fares

Waiting charges are of INR 1.00 per minute. There is also a 25% night surcharge applicable between 23.00 pm to 05.00 am hours. Total cost at night is around INR 700.00.
