For airport transfers, most of the taxi drivers are honest with their metre (if they wear the uniform and come from a trusted companies like Mai Linh, Taxi Group, Airport Taxi etc.) but some are very dishonest and dodgy. In addition, this is also true with some motorcycle taxi (xe om) drivers.
They know that this might be your first and only time in Vietnam and you haven’t got any idea of Vietnamese money and denominations. The color of money here is also very confusing, for example, 20,000 VND and 500,000 VND look very much similar. One way to avoid this scam is to know the exchange rates before you come and distance that you are going to travel.
A small taxi usually costs around 70 cents/km. Taxi to/from the airport is among the most complained things in Hanoi. To give you a freedom of mind, we work with several private car owners who are professional, honest and straight forward.
You pay Vietnam Offroad for this service when we meet in Hanoi, there is no need to pay the driver. One payment system is always lots easier.

At your arrival gate, please look for a driver holding a yellow paper with your name printed on it. In fact, the driver knows which gate you arrive by checking on the screens.
