Metered Taxi is available on the arrivals level at International terminals and is the optimal choice to transfer from Noibai airport to Hanoi center. After getting out of the arrivals exit gate, you will easily find out a fleet of taxi waiting for you. Do not rush to the invitation of any taxi drivers. We highly recommend you to take taxi from some reliable taxi companies such as Mai Linh, Noi Bai airport, Taxi Group. It is also convenient that Taxi Group and Mai Linh Taxi also accept credit card.
Taxi fare is charged according to taxi meter. The distance between the airport and the city center is about 30 kilometers. Therefore, taxi ride to your destination takes about 40-60 minutes (depending on the traffic) and costs 350,000 – 400,000 VND (15.5 – 18 USD, depending on different taxi brands).
Since taxi drivers can speak only limited English, you’d better write down your destination in Vietnamese to show the taxi drivers.
Note down the ID number of the particular taxi (displayed on a corner of the windshield and the back window) for necessary cases.
Many hotels offer free taxi services from the airport. Check with them before your arrival and they will meet you with your name written on a piece of paper.
Enjoy your ride!
