Call a taxi service

 Look for a relevant taxi service through your local phone directory. Take out the number of a local taxi cab and call them. If they are near to your location, you can book their services. Ask them about the time it will take them to reach at your destination. If you can’t find a taxi at your nearby location or you can’t wait at all, you can opt for other options.

Hail a Taxi

  • Approach the taxi: If you are in a busy city area, finding taxi can’t be a difficult task. You just have to move to the corner of street and look for an available taxi. The roof light on taxi determines if the taxi is available or occupied. If there is no light or the light states “off duty,” it simply means taxi is not available. But if the light is lit on, it means taxi can be hired.
  • Lure the taxi: If you see an available taxi, just wave your hands to ask them to stop. In addition, you can wave and shout “taxi” for a quick response. During the time of waving, it’s vital to make eye-contact with the driver to let them know that you need a ride. 

Locate a taxi stand

In case you cannot find an available taxi, search a taxi stand. They are found near train stations, hotels or tourist attraction places. You have to stay at the stand for next available taxi.  Or you can ask a hotel doorman to find taxis, if you can’t locate a taxi stand.

After you meet the taxi driver, confirm the pricing and let him know your destination. Also ask for the mode of payment as some taxi accept credit card while others deal only on cash.
