Transportation in Lebanon

Lebanon is a tiny country, most of which, is serviced by adequate means of transportation. The cities are better connected and traffic is heavy. Most people use service taxis to get around, a huge number of which, run like buses on set routes. These vehicles carry about five passengers, each of whom, chips in for a fifth of the fare. Private taxis are a more traditional approach, where the passengers pay a negotiated fare.

Tourists must watch out for pirate taxi drivers scouting around for a fast buck. Therefore it is highly advisable to book your airport transfers in advance. We provide transfers to hotels in Beirut like the InterContinental Phoenicia as well as accommodation outside the capital like Batroun Village Club or the Terre Brune Hotel in the ski resort.
