Taxi fare from Airport to the Ferry

Post by thebian » Fri Jul 13, 2018 5:20 pm

Does anyone know the approximate cost of a taxi from Luxor Airport to the ferry please?
Also does the ferry operate all night or does it stop at a certain time?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Day time 100le night time 150le, ferry runs all night as do motor boats 1le & 10le respectively.
But what's the odd 20-50le ?.... 8)

I can't speak from personal knowledge as it is sometime since I was in Luxor and used these modes of transport however, I think Who2's prices are somewhat on the low side if what I have read recently on Trip Advisor is to be believed.

As long as you don't know the taxi driver.... Paid 100le from the airport at night few months ago so 150le sounds right.
It is what it is.

Our friends taxi to the airport from the West Bank was 200LE it was 150LE when we left Luxor 18 months ago. Last time our friends regular taxi driver said due to petrol increases it would be 250LE, and I believe that is what he paid last week when he left Luxor There are so many different prices, but do not get caught out, 5 years ago a relative was quoted 50, when he arrived in Luxor he gave the Taxi driver 50LE, and the taxi driver told him that was English Pounds so there are still some ******** waiting to pounce...But I would well imaging 100-150le would be a fair price. Its not all that far away...

Depends what you call 'far away'. It's a 40 min drive from the airport to the West Bank. With all the increases I would think 250LE to be more than a fair price now if the going rate to the ferry is 150LE.It's more than twice the distance.(For that reason you are better booking your taxi in advance - if you arrive late at night many drivers who live on the East Bank won't want to travel all the way to the West Bank, it's just not worth their while)

40 mins I really don't consider that to be far, not to the airport. That's how far our airport is from us now, we just don't have to drive into the desert. In it's heyday we used to love Luxor Airport, don't know what its like now accept the fact we have been told it can be expensive for refreshments and that many of the shops are closed.

A few months ago, I would say 100 pound, but 150 is fair today. Late at night you may have to wait a very long time for the ferry to move, so I would take a motor boat for twenty pound.

Last week I enjoyed a 70 pound cappucino at Cairo Airport. I told myself that it was probably the cheapest cup of coffee I will buy this summer. :ct

For that trip the drivers want between 150-200Le now. Times are hard, so are their negotiation skills. You could always get out of the taxi as if you have to retrieve your wallet/purse, but have a 100Le note in your hand, toss it into the taxi and leg it. :lol:

Didn't there used to be a price list on this site for Taxis to and fro around Luxor?

There may well have been but it would be very out of date these days.
