To KLIA from KL

Any taxi can bring passengers to KLIA, including Kuala Lumpur’s metered red-and-white taxis, although you will find it very difficult to get drivers to use the meters. Make sure you agree on a price before getting into the taxi. Fares should be between RM60 and RM90.

General Tips

If there are two or more people travelling together, taxis are often cheaper. And it brings you to the door of your destination!

Alternative Methods

Cheapest way will be an airport bus to KL Sentral and from there to your hotel.

The fastest way is with KLIA express. The klia express goes every 15 mins and is RM35 per adult single. Its convenient at only 28 mins. then either get the monorail or taxi.

  1. how much it will cost from KLIA to Fraser’s Hill by taxi?

  2. To whom it may concern,

    I have submitted a written complaint cum compensation claim on 14 feb 2008 to the quality manager En.Meaor Al-Hadi Meor Hashim.
    (Your Ref no.ALM/MGT/0208/L028/NNA)
    I also followed up with a phone call 2 weeks later and was informed that the management is looking into my case.(Ms.Nadiha)
    However, to my great dissappointment and frustration i have not received any official response form your part.
    I would like to know what is the status of my case?

    thank you

  5. I plan to take flight from JHB (senai airport,Johor) to KLIA (KL), then need to take taxi/other transports from KLIA (KL) to LCCT (KL). Any Transport provided ? How much is the cost ?

  6. I have lived in 6 countries and visited more than 50. Malaysian taxi service is clearly the worst. Try to avoid the taxis. Take the train from the airport.

  7. The KLIA Airport taxi service is terrible to say the least. Our driver did not wear his seatbelt, was talking on his cellphone and was driving above the speedlimit most of the time. Totally unacceptable

  10. I come to know a taxi driver that are very punctual in sending me to KLIA & LCCT. It won’t be so bad if you are lucky enough just to know one reliable taxi driver.
    Off course booking needed in advance, as you know the is not easy to get a cab when you are rushing.
