Taxi driving along Apia waterfront on Upolu in Samoa
Apia waterfront, Upolu

Taxis

There are many taxis throughout Upolu and Savai’i Islands. 

Taxis aren't metered, and a fare is agreed on with the driver before departure.

The minimum fare is ST$3, and a fare from Faleolo International Airport to Apia should cost ST$60-70 - payable in cash (tala). Around town, fares range from ST$3-12 cash.

Given Samoans’ low income and the high cost to repair vehicles, many drivers drive very slowly, especially when the road is rough. Give yourself plenty of time to get anywhere.
