Let the Locals Take You Around


Taxi Services

You can find taxi depots throughout the main islands and towns of Fiji including Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, Taveuni and Kadavu. It is a reasonably cheap and practical way to get around, especially in cities and major towns like Nadi, Sigatoka and Labasa, or when travelling in a group.

Some of the key things to know are:

  • The meter must always be in plain sight (it’s required by law for licensed taxis).
  • Most taxis cater to 4 passengers and luggage. You can opt for a 7 seater van at an additional cost.
  • Negotiating fares is acceptable.
  • You can also share rides.

Taxi Fares

Fijian government regulates taxi fares with flag fall set at FJ $1.50 between 6am and 10pm (FJ $2 outside these hours), plus 10 cents for every 100m travelled, all calculated by meter.

Competition is very fierce, with unlicensed minivans scouring the streets and picking up passengers along the way, charging 80 cents for an inter-urban journey. If you encounter a taxi driver without a meter, make sure you confirm a flat rate fee for the trip before agreeing to travel.

Taxi from Nadi International Airport

Yellow Taxis are the official airport taxi fleet and can be found outside the arrivals terminal. The starting rate for any journey out of the Nadi International Airport is FJ $5.00.

Average taxi fares from Nadi Airport to:

Nadi Downtown FJ $25
Lautoka FJ $32
Port Denarau FJ $30
Suva FJ $200
Rakiraki FJ $160

Travel Tips

Licensed Taxis

Licensed taxis in Fiji have a yellow number plate that starts with LT (for licensed taxi).

Driver's Card

There is no central number to call for a taxi and Uber is not available in Fiji.
If you’ve had a pleasant taxi ride, take the driver’s card so you can book them again.


In Fiji, there is no requirement to tip your taxi driver – simply round the fare to the nearest dollar.

Book Via Resorts

Always check with your resort or travel agent to see if taxi transfers are included in your bookings. Taxis booked through your resort can be cheaper or offered as an agreed flat rate fee.
