There are many taxis just outside the gate at Batu Caves. I don't know how much would it cost you but definitely they would not be willing to turn on the meter. An alternative is to take a taxi from Batu Caves to the Terminal Putra Gombak LRT station (about RM10-15) then there are buses there that will take you directly to Genting Highlands.

The cheapest way is to take the genting bus from genting to KL Sentral for less than RM 10 per person, then take the KTM komuter from KL sentral to batu caves and back for less than RM 5 return per person. But all the hassle of travel is not really worth it for batu caves, to my personal opinion.

I read that it is difficult to get tickets for Genting Express. Is it true?

It's 1st come 1st serve. If you're going on a weekend just be early in securing your Genting Express tickets.
