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.
