Best Credit Card Machines for Taxi Drivers – Updated February 2019.


Since Monday 31st October it is compulsory for London’s famous black cabs to take card payments. This meant customers no longer have to worry about having cash on them as they can pay for their journey with their credit and debit card. Many Black cabs drivers had capacity to accept card payments before this ruling was introduced by London Mayor Sadiq Khan & Transport for London. However – now customers can be sure they can pay conveniently by card. This in turn has led to Black cabs getting more bookings and not losing out on customers who thought they needed cash to pay.



This move came about when 86% of people surveyed in consultation insisted that they would want and prefer to use their credit cards and contactless payment cards in black cab taxis. Black cabs must now all have a contactless chip & pin terminals that facilitate the printing of receipts.



After implementation many minicab and private hire companies have also started to accept card payments. For many businesses losing customers who are ready to pay because you do not have a card machine takes its toll on both your profit and reputation.
