Singapore Taxi Fare Calculator

Taking one of the 23,000 air-conditioned taxis in Singapore is the most hassle free way of travel. Singapore taxi service is not only high quality, it is also reliable and scam free. Although Singapore taxi fares went up a couple of years ago (they were so reasonable priced that they were used as public transportation) they are still reasonable priced. And unlike taxis in other South East Asian countries, they are virtually scam free.

If you want to know what would a taxi ride in Singapore cost to you, you can use Taxi Fare Calculator provided by Singapore Taxi web site. You can use this facility before booking a cab in Singapore if you are not sure how much it would cost for your trip.

Using taxi fare calculator is easy: Simply enter from where to where you are going. Below is the estimated taxi fare to get an airport taxi (from Changi Airport) to a Bugis hotel in central Singapore (a very popular hotel location in Singapore):

As you can see, the 22 minute trip from Changi Airport to the location in the city via ECP costs 18.39 SGD. Please note that there is a location surcharge of 3 Singapore Dollars for the trips originating from Changi Airport.

Same trip would cost extra 5.75 Singapore Dollars if it is taken in peak hours (see below). Monday to Friday, from 7.00am to 9.30am and Monday to Saturday, from 5.00pm to 8.00pm are peak hours and  you pay 35% of metered fare as peak hour surcharge.
