Book a Taxi and Pay by Card

Don’t worry about having to find change for a taxi home after a night out, or having to stop by a cash machine on your way to Newcastle Airport. 

Book A Taxi And Pay By Card

All our taxis are equipped to take contactless card payments so you don’t need to worry about carrying cash for your trip. Phoenix is a local taxi company who are proud to serve Northumberland, Newcastle and the North of Tyne area. Our ambition is to provide the best and most convenient service for all our customers. Offering customers the choice to pay by card for their taxi is one way we deliver on this promise.

All our cars are equipped with highly secure Chip and PIN devices for taking card payments at the end of your journey. There is no extra charge to you when paying by card. We accept the following payment types:

  • PayPal
  • MasterCard
  • Maestro
  • VISA
  • American Express

The transaction is handled entirely by PayPal, so we don’t receive any of your card details or any personal information other than the name on the card. You only pay by card what you’d pay by cash and there are no hidden surcharges or additional fees when paying your fare by card. The devices are equipped to take Contactless payments with compatible cards on payments under £30.

At the end of your taxi journey, simply ask to pay by card, and the driver will hand you the device to complete payment. A receipt can be obtained from the driver on request.

If you won’t be travelling with the card you wish to pay with, try pre-paying for your journey by booking online or through our mobile app, or, if you’re booking taxis for a business, consider creating a taxi business account with us and pay for journeys monthly by invoice.

Our in-office taxi dispatch machines also feature secure card payment facilities, so you can pay by card in advance when booking by phone, or by calling us at the end of your journey.

Of course, all journeys can also be paid by cash if you don’t wish to pay by card.
