Taxis charge a negotiated flat fee. Travelers should be aware of the typical cost to travel to specific destinations in Muscat before hailing a taxi, because negotiating the fare with the driver before getting into the taxi can signal the traveler's unfamiliarity with the area. The cost of a taxi from downtown to the airport should be no more than approximately RO 10.000, depending on the origination point. Standard fares to many points in the Muscat area are published on the airport's website. Another option is to arrange for a car for hire. Many of the local hotels offer free shuttle services to the airport as well.
