Hello,

I think you do not need to find one in advance. We were there recently and we hired a driver once we were there. Do not forget to fix the rate for places you want to go in advance.

We have always used Ocean Jupiter and found them to be totally reliable.

Whatever rate is quoted now, may not be the rate when you arrive. Penang is waiting for the Government to announce the new taxi fares for Penang which are expected to increase by 70-80%. Taxis will then all use meters which means you won't have to worry about shopping round for the cheapest deal or trying to fix your own price. The current rate is officially RM4 for the first km, and 10 sens for each subsequent 150m.
