With the decision given by the Transportation Coordination Center Board of Mugla city, taxi fares in whole Mugla region descend with the distance.

What does this mean? As the distance gets longer, the taximeter tariff per kilometer decreases.

Taxi Alternatives for Airport Transfers

Private Shuttles

For the ones who travel with a group of friends, families with kids, or the ones with lots of luggage, than a private shuttle transfer can be a good alternative for taxis, that they offer a fixed rate, comfortable and safe transfer that include meet-and-greet airport pickups and luggage assistance to your hotel from the airports or vice versa.

As for private airport shuttle transfers, we highly recommend Tranigo (a Turkish company operating since 1996, and partnered with renowned names like Hertz, Thrifty, Budget, and many reliable and efficient local suppliers) as we recently booked with them had a great trip to our hotel.

They have variety of different and good models of cars ranging from Micro for 3 passengers to Minibuses for 19 passengers and also offer child seats. They met us inside the airport, helped with our luggage, brought us in front of the hotel and there also helped us with our luggage.
