We're aiming to get from Phnom Penh to Kampot in a couple of days. The taxi seems the quicker way to go, although obviously more expensive. We'll have a maximum budget of about USD$25. Can we realistically expect to bargain a taxi down to this price (or lower) for a one way trip?

Probably closer to $40 than $20 (have just updated the Kampot transport section to reflect this) -- if you are on a budget, grab the bus -- it is a fraction of the price.
Hope that helps -- and enjoy Kampot!

Yeah, the bus is fine, or you could go by taxi for $25 if you share with other passengers. You could possibly buy the whole back seat of the taxi for $20 or $25, with another two (Cambodian) passengers in the front.
Thanks for the responses - the updated info really helps. Cheers!

Hello, We just rented a nice taxi for 30 dollars or 15 a piece...
