Kuwait Transportation: 13 reviews and 25 photos
Taxis from the airport - and from my Crowne Plaza hotel which is 5 minutes from the airport - are cheap - ask the price of course to lessen the risk of being ripped off - but fuel in Kuwait is so cheap only about £4-£5 to fill a tank - that transport is still one of the cheaper advantages of being in Kuwait.
£6/3 dinar is all it costs to go about 20-25 minutes (most drivers drive rather fast) into the city.
Normally hotels provide transport - which the Crowne Plaza do to return to the airport at any time which suits but for the city they have set times for the shuttle bus so I had to go by my own taxi which the concierge happily booked which was a lovely big leather seated monster but happy with that price and the chatty driver.
The next day to see more of Kuwait I was able to have a taxi from a reputable company (Asia TAxi with driver Mohiuddin Noor Car no 98, ph number 7976637) arranged by my hotel staff for a 2 hour drive into the countryside for 2 hours - probably a bit expensive on Kuwaiti terms but for me a good deal - 10 dinar/£20. The reception staff reckoned it was a good deal and I enjoyed the opportunity.
Im told that taxis around the city are fine to use - but to use ones that are sitting in obvious ranks. or carry phone numbers to get one from a company by phone.
