We recommend you to use pre-paid taxis to reach the Temple or your hotel from the airport. There is a counter just before the exit (for air-conditioned taxis) and one just outside the exit (for non-air-conditioned ones). Please note that the queue in the counter just outside the exit can often get quite long. At the counter, specify your destination as Prabhadevi. The rates are posted prominently behind the counter. You will be given a receipt for your payment. Retain this till the end of your ride; then hand it over to the taxi driver if he asks for it. At the exit from the airport, the airport police may want to take a look at this slip.

You can also travel in a non-prepaid taxi, in which case you will be charged according to the metered fare. However, please note that if you are not sufficiently well-informed about directions in Mumbai, it is better to avoid these taxis.
