Do Taxis accept Visa cards readily?

Hello,

Do most taxis accept visa credit cards these days? I see some old new stories about a dispute over the credit card charge but then maybe in 2016 they started to accept visa?

What are good taxi apps?

How prevalent is uber?


Thanks!

most taxi accepts visa/mastercard, I would say around 80%. Sometimes you are met with ancient old uncle taxi that accept cash only.

Good taxi calling app are grab and uber. There are lots of promo codes (every week) going around these 2 app and there is no reason why you shouldn't use them.

TransCab (red taxis) do not accept credit cards, the rest - do, with 15% processing fee.

I've had credit cards not work properly on taxis upon arrival, which is why I now do Grab and Uber exclusively with no cash involved. Do have a bit of cash on hand if possible, just in case.
