There are always Kelowna airport taxi cabs ready and waiting at the airport entrance, so you rarely have to wait for these. It's nice because you just pick up your luggage in the terminal, step out the front door, and you're ready to go.

Approximate driving time to downtown Kelowna from Kelowna airport is about 20 minutes and the distance is about 24 km (15 miles). If you're wondering about the cost, we've done some research and created a list of approximate taxi cab rates to a few destinations in Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley.

It's comforting to know that all BC taxi rates are regulated by the Passenger Transportation Board of British Columbia. When traveling with any local taxi service, provincial PTB regulations require that the fee for all trips be determined by the taxi meter.

These taxi fares are estimates only, based on average traffic flow and distance. Fares may also vary according to the time of day and traffic congestion, or just an overall increase in rates. But this gives you a good estimate.
