Metered taxis are available in all major cities and towns. You can book a taxi by phone, hail a taxi in the street or get one from a taxi rank which can usually be found at transport terminals, major hotels or shopping centres. A light and sign on the roof shows when a cab is available. There is a minimum "flagfall" charge, then a charge for the distance travelled. Small additional charges are made for luggage, telephone reservations and, where applicable, tolls; otherwise, the amount payable is shown on the meter.
