Malaysia has seen an influx of e-hailing services in recent times. From startups such as Grab, MyCar, and Dacsee rising to the top, the businesses’ of traditional taxis are put into turmoil.

Despite (or because of) witnessing several rallies by taxi drivers pressuring the government to regulate e-hailing services, consumers no longer prefer taxi services as the business continues to dwindle.

Some might blame it on the rudeness of some drivers. However, others blame it on the taxi fares, but are the fares realistically that bad?

According to a study carried out by Taxi2Airport, a five km ride in Malaysia will only set you back £1.70 or RM8.03.

The cheapest taxi ride can be found in Egypt whereby patrons will only need to fork out £0.84 (RM3.97) for the same distance, while in India, the same taxi ride will set you back RM6.10.

To compare the Malaysians fares to our Southeast Asian neighbours, Thai patrons will only have to pay RM6.65 and Indonesia RM7.92.

The most expensive taxi rides can be found in Europe where visitors are expected to cough out RM106.96 per five km taxi ride in Switzerland, RM65.08 in Germany, RM63.19 in Holland and RM60.84 in Belgium.
