I also heard of some Taxi Union issues in Goa
where these taxi operators do not give car for rental, as some hotels have there own tie ups
so if you want to hire taxi, also you should book hotel accordingly, some hotels where self driven cars from other operators are not allowed

2. Lemon tree
3. Whispering Palms
4. Phoenix Park inn
5. Neelam grand
6. Club estadia
7. Deltin suites
8. Club Mahindra
9. Emerald Palms

as sample. so important to tell your hotel name to car rental company
