You can easily find taxis in Goa. There are yellow taxis which run across the state and are usually available for hire. Otherwise, you can book a taxi from major tourists' spots, hotels or online.

All you need to do is provide any identification card to the local rental stores (they are found in every corner of the state) and hand over the rent and swift away to your destination (or a road to nowhere). The rental doesn't include petrol/CNG charges (Hail god! Goa is amongst the few state where you can get petrol at the price as low as Rs 60/Liter). Also, the rentals are usually charged on per day basis, it starts from Rs 250 and can range according to the vehicle you opt for.
