Customers are still unclear about whether they can use their credit card to pay for Edinburgh taxis. The confusion remains because there are some cab companies that take credit and debit cards and others that only offer this service on a limited basis.
At Capital Cars we believe facilitating card payments is important in order to meet our customers’ needs. In many situations, paying by card is the most convenient and quickest option. By offering a full range of payment choices (including card, cash and account booking) we hope to make life that little bit easier for our customers.
When booking a taxi by card, you can pay in advance of your journey using our online booking system or the Capital Cars’ app. This is a helpful option for those times when you don’t have cash on you, you’re booking your taxi well in advance or you are ordering on behalf of a colleague, relative or friend. However, if it is more convenient for you, you can choose to pay the driver by card at the end of your journey, using the credit card machines fitted in all our taxis.
As well as delivering a flexible and reliable taxi service in and around Edinburgh, we also aim to offer our customers value for money. Whether you are paying by card or cash, we will take 20% off* taxi metered fares.
To find out more about paying by card, or any other payment option, have a look at the Online Booking and Booking Apps pages on the Capital Cars’ website or ask your driver who will be more than happy to help.
