"from the airport to the city" Beirut Transportation Tip by RblWthACoz
Beirut Transportation: 47 reviews and 33 photos
Upon stepping up to the taxi line, I was "greeted" by several men. I told them where I wanted to go and one of them told me $30. The proper rate for a trip anywhere in the city from the airport is about $15 or $20. So anywhere around this is what you should be haggling for.
The funniest thing about my trying to get a ride was when several drivers started arguing over who would get my fare. They grabbed my bag and yelled at each other and even dropped the price more between them as they verbally went at it. I just sat at the side and waited (chuckling the whole time) until I was ready to go. Then I grabbed my bag, picked a driver, and off we went.
When I arrived at my destination, the driver tried to ask for more money, but I stood firm on the price we agreed upon.
