Is there a PRE PAID TAXI service at the airport international arrivals ? Exactly where is it located ? I prefer not to deal with taxis curbside. In my 6 trips to India airport taxis have always been a major hassel IE: touts, meter broken, can't find my hotel, want to take me to other hotel etc! I would like to avoid that. Thanks

Hi,

I can't say for sure. We left India from this airport, and it had modern facilities. I would be surprised if there is not a pre-pay taxi kiosk, they seem to be even at main train stations.

Good Luck!

Yes of course there are prepaid taxis---a simple web search would confirm that. There is also Uber and local competitor Ola.

Almost the first thing one learns when going to India is to use prepaid taxis at airports and rail stations. You have made 6 trips to India and didn't figure out until now that you shouldn't talk to touts or deal with taxi drivers directly at airports/stations?

RPG thanks for comment, but in fact I googled a lot and can find no confirmation of prepaid taxi counter at the Bangalore airport. I do my homework. Even the airport website does not show it, they only talk about cabs that are at airport, and there are no maps of the arrivals terminal. For your information, the hassles I've had have been with prepaid taxis in Delhi over the past 10 years. As for touts I don't deal with them but they present themselves as taxi drivers and I quickly dismiss them, but they are a hassle. I cannot arrange a taxi in advance because I do not have a cell phone for India.

No there isn't prepaid taxi at Bengaluru airport (i have been only in domestic side though)
Follow airpot taxi signs and you will find Meru and Mega taxis who use meters. Like always ignore touts (there are not many) Cost in city center is ~1000inr including tolls
Bengaluru airport is one of the best airports where i have been in India, it's not like Delhi or Mumbai.I was there last time yesterday.
