At the airport:
White taxis (City taxis): Upon your arrival at domestic
or international arrival areas: you have to go up a
flight of stairs towards the domestic departure area
entrance where they queue for customers.
Yellow Taxi (Airport taxis) - They have a counter just outside the domestic and international arrival area.Yellow taxis may be slightly more expensive but more reliable as you will get a receipt with details of taxi and destination.
In Cebu City:
You can find them basically anywhere in Cebu. In and around Cebu City, there are plenty of taxis and it's only a few US$ to take you to the shopping mall or favourite restaurant.
Note: Taxis are required by law to use the meter. It is advisable to always remind the driver to switch on the meter. The Land Transportation Regulatory Board (LTFRB) regulates the taxi business. To make a report, you have to remember either the big bold body taxi number or plate number. Whether you are taking taxis or jeepneys, it is always advisable to take care of your wallets and valuables as you would not want your trip to be spoiled due to carelessness.
