Taking an airport taxi from the Incheon International Airport to destinations in the Seoul area is ideal for those who want hassle free door to door transportation. An airport taxi is ideal for larger groups, those with large or extra luggage, or if you don’t have exact directions to your destination. If you need to get to Incheon or Gyeonggi, then a taxi is a great option.
Though often more expensive than the Airport Railroad Express (AREX) or limousine bus, you will be more comfortable and arrive at your exact location stress free without having to carry large pieces of luggage through crowded stations and sidewalks.
Finding the taxi stand is simple. Just exit the Passengers Terminal and follow the signs towards the stand. At the stand, there are often workers who speak English who can help you with any questions. They can direct you to the correct taxi to get to your destination.
Regular taxis can take up to four passengers at a time. The base fare is 2,400 won for the first 2 kilometers (1.2 miles). A 20% surcharge is added between the hours of 24:00 and 4:00.
Deluxe taxis can also handle up to four passengers. The base fare is 4,500 won for the first 3 kilometers (1.8 miles). There is no surcharge between 24:00 and 4:00. These vehicles are more comfortable, spacious, and often offer a higher level of service and safety.
International Taxis are Seoul’s official foreign language taxi service. These taxis are for foreigners only. All international taxi drivers are required to know English and some even know more than one language.
Passengers will be charged a flat rate when using an international taxi between Incheon International Airport and downtown Seoul. Fares are calculated based on your destination in one of three zones. All tolls are included in the flat fare, so no need to worry about paying extra fees.
