exactly never argue with taxi or trike drivers over a fare. better to just pay it or not agree to it. Most of the ones at Term. 1 will come down in price if you don't act newbie so not worth the hassle going upstairs by pulis to save a hundred pesos

@  FurryFriend : (27 May 2015 - 06:20 AM)

i wouldn't agree to a rate and then demand the metered rate. this is the philippines...the less confrontation u have with locals, the better...are you really that confident about your personal safety?

@  PhillySteak : (27 May 2015 - 06:07 AM)

airport is worst place except term 3 followed by return from binondo/chinatown markets.

@  PhillySteak : (27 May 2015 - 06:05 AM)

I fly in and out of Manila at least 15 times a year both international and interIslands and have taken over 100 manila taxis this year all hours of the day and many make demands at night for extra even daytime chinatown traffic many won't use mether

@  PhillySteak : (27 May 2015 - 06:02 AM)

You shouldn't talk this way some newbies will believe it all. Drivers can ask where u are going then say Tired done for the day and drive off. you can do nothing. Do you want to risk police if they refuse meter and you drive off with them or if they say 500 plus meter and you don't pay. foreigner loses with pulis

@  SD69247 : (27 May 2015 - 05:20 AM)

You now get a lot less bullshit from taxi drivers since they changed the rules and now the drivers are required to have a HUGE license posted inside the car with their name, photo and license number information.

@  SD69247 : (27 May 2015 - 05:18 AM)

Even if the shithead quotes you 1000 pesos, tell him that's fine as long as the meter is running. When you get there, pay him the meter rate and a small tip. He can do nothing.

@  SD69247 : (27 May 2015 - 05:17 AM)

PH law says a driver cannot refuse you a ride based on where you are going.

@  SD69247 : (27 May 2015 - 05:16 AM)

That's why you lie to the driver and tell him something closer to the airport. Then once he leaves the airport tell him you changed your mind.

@  PhillySteak : (27 May 2015 - 05:11 AM)

lots of flights land from korea and japan late and many other places. I hate the lines that time of night

@  PhillySteak : (27 May 2015 - 05:10 AM)

typical long customes lines and very dead upstairs with very very rare taxis dropping someone off

@  big GL : (27 May 2015 - 04:43 AM)

shit, better question is how is terminal one arrivals looking at 1130pm?

@  PhillySteak : (27 May 2015 - 04:34 AM)

If you are at terminal one and it is busy your chances are better than if at night when there are very few people arriving at like 10 or 11 pm and the taxi's get picky upstairs. Many turned us down not wanting to fight roxas traffic to malate

@  elmo5743 : (27 May 2015 - 04:06 AM)

thanks philly, been 2 years, i get there tomorrow, i will give it a shot, i dont do it for the couple bucks, i do it when there is 30 people in line for cabs

@  PhillySteak : (27 May 2015 - 03:39 AM)

Or arrange car from your hotel or car service to AC if you are not staying in Manila.

@  PhillySteak : (27 May 2015 - 03:37 AM)

I got past a couple times too but the last too times I got stopped and so much time wasted having to go back downstairs not worth it to save two or three dollars. Easier to be patient and negotiate outside departure They have more Police with the remodel and crews to watch

@  elmo5743 : (27 May 2015 - 03:29 AM)

philly steak. i never had a problem doing it

@  PhillySteak : (27 May 2015 - 02:50 AM)

getting up there with a bag is not the problem it is exiting past the police at the doors with a bag to leave. they don't sell tickets outside so you have no business going out there and they KNOW IT

@  yardbyrd : (26 May 2015 - 06:34 PM)

Well guys, gotta go now and get ready to head to the airport. I should be landing in the PI in about 6 and a half hours.

@  big GL : (26 May 2015 - 05:10 PM)

plane hits the pavement in manila at 10;45PM so hopefully the lines won't be that long. yes, i will have a big bag so i'll just use the excuse that i needa buy a ticket.
