The main concern of most taxi companies is the comfort of their passengers, and some cabs even have left-hand-drive cars to make their customers feel more like they are riding at home. When hailing a cab, remember that fares are not regulated by the government, and most cabs have fixed rates according to the distance of the trip. Usually cab fare is inexpensive, but travelers should make sure to negotiate the cost of your trip with the driver before you set off for your destination. The airports usually post cab fares in U.S. and TT dollars.
