London, 31st October 2016 – Need to hail a taxi but don’t have any cash? No problem. From today, every black cab in London will accept card and contactless payments. Passengers can use their Mastercard with no surcharges, and a minimum fare of just £2.60.
As recent Mastercard research shows Britons now carry less than £5 in cash, it means those in the capital can hail one of London’s iconic taxis without worrying about the change in their wallet.
