According to the 2021 taxi fares for Mugla region, the taxi-meter switch on price is 5,50 TL and per kilometer price varies with the distance (i.e. 5,60 TL per km. for 1-5 km. distance; 4,75 TL per km. for 6-15 km.; 3,75 TL per km. for 16-30 km.; 2,75 TL per km. for 31-50 km. distance; 2,40 TL per km. over 51 km.)

There is no day and night difference. If we make a calculation, regarding you will take a local taxi from the Dalaman airport to Gocek within an average distance of 19 km, the taxi fare for will be around 125 TL.

You can calculate approx. taxi fare by using this formula. It may also cost you more depending where your hotel is, possible traffic and the taxi driver’s possible drive to your hotel from different long routes.

We also recommend you to ask and pay in Turkish Liras, the taxi fares sometimes have big differences with the foreign currencies.
