A taxi station can be found outside the Passenger Terminal Arrivals. Use only taxis equiped with charging devices and which have prices displayed in sight.
Estimated cost : 0.50 €/km (2.25 RON/km - at day, 3.00 RON/km - at night).

In case there are no available taxis, call one of these trusted companies below :

Taxi Climă & Confort - +40 264 943
Diesel Taxi - +40 264 946
Taxi Napoca - +40 264 953
Nova Taxi - +40 264 949
Daniel Taxi - +40 264 947

Taxis in Cluj are cheap, reliable and available 24 hours a day. However, watch out for some drivers at the Airport who are looking to overcharge tourists and business men alike. Airport to city centre is 20 lei or 5 euro, but they are not turning on their metres and claiming 50+ Lei or 30+ euro.

Advice is to avoid the drivers directly outside the airport terminal, who tend to hassle trying to ascertain if you are local, and take one from the others waiting respectfully too one side. Then check the metre is turned on.

Bad news:- taxis at the airport form up in-line outside the airport entrance, and you can no longer choose which taxi you'd like to take. Certain unsavoury taxi drivers will now block the front of the queue and refuse you service if you do not agree beforehand on an over-inflated fare (100+ Lei or 40+ euro to city centre). The best course of action is to order a cab by phone, then make sure they start their meters.
