Taxi: One can avail taxis in any of the towns. However it is advisable to discuss the price before boarding. You can't expect to find the metered-taxis out of the big towns. Even in those taxis, you should first negotiate the price before getting in. The three-wheelers or auto-rickshaws are found in all towns of the country. In tourists spots as well as outside the railway stations and bus stops, three wheelers are easily available. The rule of negotiating the price implies itself here too.

Car rentals: You can hire a car for moving around the country. Several car rental shops are available to choose from. This way you would be able to escape the rush of public transport. Costs of hiring are also not much and common tourists can afford them.
