July 2016: The taxi fares at Goa Dabolim airport have changed after about 5 years. The rate works out to about Rs 27 per km for an air-con car and about Rs 25 per km for a non-air-con car. Taxis are available 24 hours. You will have to pay 35% extra between 11 PM and 5 AM.
Directions to the Taxi Counter at Goa Dabolim Airport arrival terminal are shown below:

April 2016: The fare chart is no longer displayed, but the fares have not changed (since 2011). There is one taxi counter now. A map of the arrival area is shown further below.
March 2015: As you come out of the baggage carousel hall, you will find two taxi counters:
(1) Black-Yellow Taxis run by the Government, and
(2) White Taxis run by the Tourism Department.
The Taxi fare charts and my map of the exit area of the new terminal building are shown below. A slip of paper with the destination, fare and taxi number are written and handed over to passengers. The designated taxi driver finds you (with a little help from friends). You need to follow the taxi driver to the vehicle, fasten seat belts (you may not always find them since it is not compulsory for passengers), enjoy the ride, and pay the driver once you reach your destination.

You can get the pre-paid taxi slips inside and outside the terminal, from two sides of the same counters. A map of the taxi counters and exit area shown below:
The amount indicated on the bill has to be paid to the driver on arrival at your destination. Like this bill from Jan 2015:
Have a wonderful holiday..!!

July 2014: The pre-paid taxi counter is located in the new airport terminal at Dabolim. Amazingly, the taxi fares from Dabolim airport have not changed since December 2011, when this post was first written.
December 2013: The pre-paid taxi counter and fare chart is located just outside the current arrival hall, before the exit gate. The new terminal is not functional yet (as of last week of December 2013).
