We take a private taxi. We took a share taxi once and it was bloody scary! Four people in the front, two of them in the driver’s seat! We swore never again.
I had that once and agree never again. To add to the adventure there was a pistol holster with bullets on the parcel shelf although no sign of the gun and an army of hanging off the back of the seat. I photographed it and sent it to someone just in case....

I thought it was a thing of the past until I overtook a car on the way down to kep only to see 2 people in the drivers seat as they weaved down the road

Sihanoukville to Kep is quoted at $45 here. Last price update was 23 October 2018.

Mea culpa. Edited to correct: The $45 trip quoted is from Sihanoukville to Kep, not from Phnom Penh.

Private taxi to SNV from PP costs us $50 one way.

PP to SR costs us $80.

We took a taxi to Preah Vihear from PP - it cost $250 return and we gave the driver something extra for two nights’ accommodation. The cost included driving to the temple as well.
$80 to Siem Reap seems quite a lot. Is that the going rate these days?

I am interested to know, how many people get a taxi on their own, as opposed to traveling with a taxi full of people?

If it is full, everybody shares the cost, so it is cheap for each person.
Since I opened my holiday rental in Kep recently I noticed that all guests, who didn't come here with their own car, used a private taxi to travel here and go back. Even though I offer a free pickup from the bus arrival.

@rogerrabbit thanks for the camboticket.com tip, didn't know about that one.

True that $45 from Kep to PP can be found. IF you're lucky and book plenty in advance. I tried getting a taxi for one of my guests recently, all the usual ones I use were booked already. Called (not exaggerating) +20 taxi drivers that day to get a price close to that. None would do it for less than $70. My reward was a bad review.

In the case you cannot use your usual trustful driver, why not using an driver agency I think they have better connection and they can do a bit more pressure on the driver to do for a right price, but service level is not always great.
If you need I can give you the detail of a driver in PP doing Kep for 45 usd or a used agency "for emergency case"

sometimes depends if your driver has come from kep and has not got a return fare and doesnt want to stay over, then he will go cheap. Sometimes they will go cheaper early becasue that gives them time to find a return fare. Luck of the draw
