    [QUOTE=ootai;4188063]My latest experience with taxi's was 2 weeks ago in Korat.
    I needed to get from the Ford dealers where they were working on my car to the Mall.
    Taxi called jump in and off we go meter running so I thought no problems here arguing about the fare.
    Arrive at the Mall the meter reads 92baht, 110 baht says the driver. WTF I ask what is going on here?
    Business charge he says. I mutter something and give the money as I couldn't be bothered arguing about 20 baht.



    I had similar experiences in Ubon. Sometimes the fare was 30 baht more than indicated. A friend explained it to me, if you phone in and call a taxi there is a service charge, if you wave one down off the street there is no service charge. Kinda makes sense.

    Taxis don't use petrol. So do you still have to pay the baggage charge when it has to sit on your knee due to the massive LPG tank in the boot?

    Luggage handling fees only apply to cabs heading to and from Bangkok airports

    After the latest cab fare hike in the form of “special handling fees” won a mixture of amusement and dismay from the public, the Land Transport Department’s deputy director Tanee Suebrerk announced that this special fee only applies to metred taxis plying to and from Bangkok’s two airports.

    He said taxis that do not pick up or deliver passengers to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports will only charge ordinary metre fare. Under new regulations, taxis to and from the airports will be allowed to charge the following:

    • Bt20 for every bag that exceeds 26 inches in width, height or length.

    • Bt20 for every additional item of luggage after the first two.

    • No more than Bt100 per piece for sports equipment like golf bags, bicycles, surfboards or musical instruments that are 50 inches or more in size.


    • No more than Bt100 for equipment, tools or appliances that are 50 inches or more in size.

    The cabbie is required to inform the passenger in advance about the extra handling fees.

    No charges will be allowed for carry-on baggage such as handbag, computer bag, backpack or personal belongings carried by the passenger.

    And of course such an announcement will allay all fears that drivers will use it as an opportunity to gouge people.

    Fucking morons.

    And just who the fuck is going to measure the fucking cases on a crowded morning with anything upward of 300 punters plus baggage queuing up for a cab??

    They surely have to be the most incompetent folk in the region.
