Taxis operate 24 hours a day. All taxis operate a meter and can be hired for the day. Share-taxi service to all towns on fixed routes is also available and can be hired for private use. Tips of around 10% are appreciated. Note that taxis often display the fare in fills rather than dinars and if you mistake one for the other, no-one is likely to correct you.
