At the time of writing, there is a fixed rate of KD 4 from the airport into the city. Drivers may not speak English so it is a good idea to know the name of your destination.

In the city, there are two types of taxi, Orange taxis work a fixed route and pick up passengers anywhere along that route. These taxis may be shared. Call taxis pick up passengers on request only.

Fares for a journey of around 15km in a private taxi should be in the region of KD2.500 but the taxi company will be able to tell you the exact cost of the taxi when you book.

Taxis run 24 hours a day and rental cars are readily available throughout the country.
