There are several ways to go to the City and other parts of the island from Singapore Changi International Airport. Please click here for general information.  


Unlike in many cities, taxis are inexpensive and convenient means of transport in Singapore and probably the best way to your accommodation from the airport. In Singapore Changi Airport, you can find ‘Taxis’ signs in the arrival hall.  A ride from the airport to your accommodation takes about 25-30 minutes and costs S$18.00-32.00 excluding surcharges. In town, you are able to catch one on streets or even call for bookings. Surcharges include peak hours surcharge, late night surcharge, airport surcharge, phone bookings and advanced bookings (bookings prior to 30 minutes and more). Also, Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charge is applicable if your taxi goes into the Central Business District (CBD) or passes certain points on expressways during its operational hours (mostly Mon-Fri daytime). 

The journey from airport to city costs approximately between S$18.00-S$32.00 (excluding surcharges).  

The airport surcharge:
   - S$5.00 Fri-Sun (5pm-midnight);
   - S$3.00 all other times;
   - Late night surcharge (
Midnight-5:59am): 50% of metered fare.
