I don't think I have ever paid more than 500g for one of the three main ports if I am in Jeuno. If I am in one of the other cities, I usually volunteer at least 100g more, depending on how desperate I am.

I do pay BLMs for their WARP 2. It's a courtesy and most of the time they refuse to take the money.

The Vahzl port sometimes blows my mind, though. One thing to keep in mind is that you can haggle with these WHM. Many times they have taken 100 - 200g off the price if I haggle for Vahzl, especially if there are multiple people in your party needing the port. I guess haggling comes from my hispanic heritage :D

1k for a teleport! geez! Back in my day (before school started, those bastages), 'twas 500 Home citys/700 Altep, Yhoat ( just got Yhoat ^^, Vahzl will be conquered!)/ and varying prices on Vahzl, mostly 1k. I think it should stay that way. ^^

1K for a crag teleport is not unusual, if at the time you happent to be taking a WHM away from another activity (i.e. lfg, crafting, working the AH, doing a quest, etc.).

The 500/700/1000 'standard' prices are simply market rates for the shouty-taxis who do nothing but sit in jeuno and port people around. They charge that much because the market tolerates it, and because there isn't much competition to drive it down.

When you're the only willing WHM around to teleport someone then the price becomes whatever the customer is willing to pay. They can always take a chocobo, an airship, or walk. WHMs aren't forced to charge certain amounts for teleports any more than they are forced to do it for free.
