The closer you are to a major urban area, the more cabs are available — especially in front of a hotel.
MyAssist Tip 1: The fastest and easiest way to find a taxi is to notify your hotel.
MyAssist Tip 2: When you're not around your hotel, stand on the curb in a populated area or high-traffic street, hold your hand up in the air, and flag down a cab by safely facing the direction of traffic.
MyAssist Tip 3: Mobile cab finder applications are available for your smart phone. Consider one of these applications if you are a frequent traveler.
MyAssist Tip 4: Call ahead!
What cab drivers tell MyAssist:
You never know what kind of cab you'll flag down, so make sure you call a reputable taxi service.
Be efficient. Have your luggage in sight — cab drivers will fight over your business.
Look at the cab. It says everything about the driver!
Before the trip begins, let the driver know you're going to want a receipt — it's a signal you won't stand for getting ripped off.
