Taxis in Malmok

Getting a ride in Malmok may come down to making a phone call

Because Malmok is a beach town, many tourists plan to arrive at their resort and never stray from the beach and their accommodations more than a handful of times. For these people, it makes more sense to take a taxi when they have somewhere to go rather than rent a car.

Taxi Companies

What you need to know about taxis in Malmok is that they are regular cars only designated as a taxi by the letters “TX” on the license plate. This can make them difficult to tell apart from the other cars on the street, but, you can avoid trying to hunt a cab own by simply calling and having a driver pick you up wherever you are, and you can even arrange for your driver to pick you up and return you to your accommodations in advance.

If you'd rather make reservations for a cab to meet you at a reserved location and time, you may want to get in touch with one of these these taxi services.

Rates, Fares, and Fees

Taxis in Malmok do not run on meters. Instead, fares are set in advance, based on the distance from where you are departing from and arriving at. Make sure to ask your driver for the rate card when you get in, so you can see before you even begin driving how much it'll cost you to get to your destination. Rates are per vehicle, which means it will cost the same amount whether there is one person riding or four.

There are a few extra charges that can add up that you should be aware of. The first is the luggage charge. If you are traveling to or from the airport, you can store luggage in the trunk free of charge. A $3(USD) charge will be tacked on per minute that the driver has to wait on you to run and errand or visit an attraction, so you may want to consider hiring the taxi by the hour if you'll be making a lot of stops. This will cost you $45(USD) per hour. If you'll be riding in a taxi on a Sunday, a holiday, or between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m., it is another $3(USD) extra.
