Dabolim Airport Taxi

 

Get to downtown Panaji within 40 minutes, since it is located at just 29 km southwest of the airport.

It is without a doubt the best and most recommended option to transfer to and from Goa Airport if we compare with the other available options (bus, train and shuttle bus).

We recommend passengers to board a prepaid taxi, since they are cleaner and more honest than the regular taxis.

We ought passengers to be aware of the existing scams related to taxi services at Dabolim Airport. That is the reason why we insist in taking a prepaid taxi rather than a regular one since safety regarding scams can be more guaranteed.  

According to reports, Goa taxi services are one of the worst in India given the corrupted local taxi association (even locals are ripped off!). There are taxis without taximeter, the vehicles that have one never turn it on, and prices are fixed according the distance to destination, which is always altered (real distances are lower than the ones showed at the airport price chart).
