Well if u want taxi u will get INDICA (Non ac) for 4 passengers and it will charge Rs800-1000 for 80Kms, 8hours and after that they will charge Rs8-10 for per KM.
For Sedan (Indigo etc) u have to pay Rs1100 for the same. Apart from that u can avail the facility of Mumbai Darsan BUS Service. They charge Rs250 for Non Ac and Rs400 for AC buses.

We paid about 800Rs for a taxi from Fort to the international airport last jan (2009... One of the directions was a non airconditioned cab.

How much should we be looking to pay on our trip this coming Jan?

Ouch Space! Non-AC should not be more than Rs.300 and the blue AC would be 25% more. Unless you got a cab from your hotel in which case they deserve their fat commission for the Rs.1 phone call!

cab fare

hi

I would like to make a very simple question.

If I get a street cab, how much a cab should be from CST to Gateway of India.

Thanks a lot

its best to ask the cabbie to flag down the meter. if he does not take another cab....shouldnt cost more than 22-25 rs.

I'm used to getting royally ripped off by taxis in places like Delhi and Bangalore. In the former case we quickly learned the Metro system and in the latter we just hired a guy by the day. So my question is.....

.....do taxis in Mumbai REALLY use meters? Even for obviously foreign tourists?

yes they do use the meters but always insist them to put the meter on or just get out At the end of your journey take a look at the meter reading then ( print this out)http://www.trafficpolicemumbai.org/T...iff%20card.pdf
compare the 2 and thats your cost

Do any of the radio-dispatched taxi services (Meru, Mega, Gold) offer cars larger than a 4 seat passenger car? We're a group of 5, with luggage. I guess we could get 2 cabs, but staying together would be easier...

You could even opt of Mumbai darshan where you will have a guide and planned tour. You can do the booking from redbus.in or contact any travel agency.

I'm sure Meru doesn't, but I have seen other radio taxi options with maruti eeco seating 5 with non-ac. But I think they do not charge meter tariff & use the hr/km package rates instead. I'm sure if you call Mega or Easy, they can arrange something that would suit your needs.

Normally when I booked any taxi they have charged me according to meter charges.
For sight seeing safe I have gone through private travel bus but government service is also available,taken at borivali dropping also available which cover all places in Mumbai.They charged me around Rs.800.
