You should be able to contract (schedule) a long distance, one-way, car and driver through most hotels. They will pick you up wherever you request. You will pay a premium for this. You can reasonably expect to have to do some prior coordination depending on vehicle and driver availability. Alternately, there are numerous tour companies that you could ...

Getting a taxi when 1,000 other people are trying to do the same thing at the same location is practically impossible. I doubt you could get an Uber either, at least not without paying an insane surge price. Barring having a really good friend to pick you up and drive you, your best bet here really is public transit. The 19 and 20 buses will stop on ...

To answer your questions: How does it work? Leave the arrivals terminal and the taxi ranks are opposite the doors. You will see signs for taxis clearly inside and outside of the terminal. Queue and wait your turn. There is usually a representative for the airport or someone official at the head of the queue asking you where your destination is. How can I ...

How does it work? You go and stay in the queue for the taxi, usually just outside the terminal. When it's your turn, you get inside the taxi and tell the driver your destination. And than you ride in (sometimes smelly) taxi for a while (for a long while) and eventually you get to your destination. How can I recognize it? You won't miss it. There will be ...

You should read the information on the Port Authority Website with regards to your question. The only taxis that are allowed to pick up at the JFK airport are NYC T&LC's Yellow Taxis, so look for them. Normally you would see a "Taxi" stand with a booth outside the terminal and a line of taxis there.

If you're taking a taxi from the airport, once you go out from the terminal, you will find a few official "kiosks" for all reputable taxi companies, including BlueBird and SilverBird. BlueBird has some taxis with a poster saying "SHIA Airport Taxi", which stands for Soekarno Hatta International Airport. These ones usually do have a working credit card ...

As a rule, taxis in Jakarta do NOT accept credit cards, although there are a few exceptions. Some Blue Bird taxis do have credit card facilities, but always be sure to check before travelling that they are available/working. In general, you do not want to rely on them having such facilities are they are few and far between. If travelling from the airport, ...

I travelled from the CGK airport in Jakarta using Bluebird taxis. Be careful of drivers that are not reputable. At the airport, they did not have an office, from what I could see, and I wasn't aware of any available method of paying by card within the taxi. If you are using the airport, there are ATM's available for cash withdrawals, within the baggage ...

Taxi drivers dont like payment through OLA because more of their income shows up on papers and that would eventually lead to more income tax. Most taxi drivers dont even file income tax returns and paying payments through such platforms would eventually bring them into the tax net hence the resistance. There is another reason that is hard for many people to ...

edit Thanks @DumbCoder for the link to the New Indian Express article about Chennai taxis and Ola Money. In the specific case of Ola, it seems the complaint is late payment; even though the driver is supposed to be credited within two working days of the transaction, apparently Ola has not been timely, sometimes not paying them for almost a week. Overall, ...

I drove this route in a Lada Niva. It's not dangerous at all and not so mountainous as you might think. The biggest part of the road from Batumi to Akhaltsikhe is not asphalted but is wide enough to allow cars to drive in both directions without any risks and can be done with any kind of car / bus. The part from Akhaltsikhe to Borjomi is in very good ...
