A Conversation for Hailing a Taxi in Cairo, Egypt

Cairo taxis

Rate shown in November 2007 about right. I would expect to add EGP5 if the destination is a the pyramids or a key tourist hotel. Add same amount for late night travel rather than double.

Trip to airport EGP 45 from town unless very busy in which case make it 55.

Another option for travel to or from the airport are the "limousine" services from the booths in the airport as you exit from the baggage area. They charge 75 into town (pay at airport) but you will get a newer car than they typical taxi and they know all the hotels, including the smaller ones. Tip the driver 10 on arrival.
