I've only used the local taxi service once to get from the city centre out to the bus station and had no problems whatsoever. We picked up a taxi from the rank on the main square and the driver was happy to help load our luggage in his boot (trunk). The meter was switched on as soon as we set off and on arrival provided a detailed printout of the bill - just over 100 Denar including extras. The journey seemed to be by the most direct route (taking about ten minutes) and totally stress-free.

I gather that only official taxis, distinguishable by their blue and white livery, are allowed to use the ranks but if you require a pre-booked cab then it would probably be best to let your hotel (or a tourist office) make your booking and agree a price.
