Hotels and others are not really supposed to supply taxis, rather than those who are officially based there. This is why a premium is usually charged, and you risk to pay 40JD rather than the 35JD which is the normal price.

Hi,when you cross the border, you find a lot of taxi drivers wishing to take you to wadi rum desert or elswhere. But we agreed with our camp manager in wadi rum in advance, to send a taxi for us when we cross the border in Arava. It was a very good decision, as we were (family of 3 including teenager daughter) very safety taken to the camp. I think you may do the same, if you are going to stay in a camp in Wadi Rum. (I would highly recommend to spend at least one night there in a camp in wadi rum).

If any questions, you may ask me, We were in Jordan last year, in October. Wonderful memories :)

PS. We paid 30 JOD for a taxi from Arava to Wadi Rum.
