Taxi rates inclusions

  • Sameer on #64023

    Can someone please confirm if following things are included in private taxi rates:

    – Fuel/Petrol
    – Driver’s accommodation/Food etc

    If driver has to stay a day or 2 extra without driving, then generally what are the additional charges we need to pay?

    Sameer, fuel is included in the charges of taxi rates. Depending on the tour mostly one night is covered, extra nights are like 2500-3000 extra per day

    Thanks Dheeraj. I assume insurance (such as insurance for car broke down etc) is driver’s responsibility and there is no additional payment for those things. Perhaps, it is not an issue when hiring the car directly through driver but may need to be paid if going via an agency?

    I am trying to estimate the cost and trying to figure out if we need to consider any fine prints with taxi rates.

    on the last page of taxi union rates, you can find the rates for night stay. For eg, if it is a 2 day trip to Pangong and back to Leh and instead of one night, you spend 2 nights, lets say – then you need to pay the extra day charges. apart from that everything is included. You’ll also get a discount over the rates mentioned in taxi union rates.
