    The cabbie asked (for)my destination.

    The cabbie asked (for)my destination after I got in.

    Is 'for' commonly there in this context?

    'The cabbie asked where I wanted to go after I got in.'

    In reality, the cabbie wouldn't need to ask that - you'd tell him first where you wanted to go.
