Taxis are inexpensive and often the most convenient form of transportation in Jordan, even over substantial distances, such as the trip between Amman and Aqaba. The white-painted "service taxis" ride fixed routes and are shared. Private taxis are painted yellow; they can be taken from ranks outside larger hotels, or hailed in the street. Taxis have metres, but these are not always used at night, so it is advisable to agree on the cost beforehand. The same applies to long journeys. Taxi drivers are friendly, know the city well, and usually speak English. It is considered appropriate for a woman to sit in the back of the taxi. Tipping isn't compulsory, but it is customary to add about 200 fils (20 piasters) to the price of the metre.
Several companies offer charter bus and regular tours in a fleet of modern, air-conditioned coaches. For schedules please ask your hotel concierge or visit the destinations page on this site; click here for the major attractions and destinations.
