I will be wanting to get a taxi from Goa airport to Gokarna, just south of the Goa Karnataka border. I'm wondering if I will be able to get a taxi, prepaid or otherwise, out of state and about how much I should pay. Sorry if this is in the wrong forum but it seemed a good place to ask.
The prepaid taxis will not take you to any destination outside Goa. The tourist taxis otside the airport will however take you. Gokarna is located in Karnataka which is a neighbouring state. A taxi to Gokarna will cost you not less than Rs 3000 because the driver will have to come back empty after dropping you and he also has to pay the interstate tax when he crosses the Goa- Karnataka border.
Thanks for your replies. A friend has given me the number of a Gokarna taxi driver who makes the journey almost daily to the airport, says he paid 1400 in February. I will let you know how I get on nearer the time, but 3000 may be beyond my budget.
Going off topic here but Where would be a good place to spend the night and get onward bus or train connection in the morning?
Dianetorre - Last year I got a sleeper bus from Hampi to Gokarna so I guess they go in the opposite direction as well. Paolo Travels was the company if I remember correctly.
