Contactless & Apple Pay

Whiteside Taxis now offer in-car card transaction terminals for secure, reliable and fast payments across all our fleet. Keep your cash and pay your taxi fare by card. All major debit and credit cards are accepted and payments can be made in seconds.

With a tap of your contactless card, a quick swipe using Apple Pay (transactions under £30.00) or with reliable chip & pin, paying your fare couldn’t be more convenient. All Whiteside Taxis now have contactless card terminals so no more waiting around sorting out payment, simply tap & go in a second! Contactless payments are fully protected by your bank. You can find out more about Contactless payments on the UK Card Association Website.

Chip and PIN machines have now completely replaced the traditional swipe and sign method. Because using Chip and PIN terminals is so secure, your bank will cover you against any fraudulent transactions. In the UK we are now using chip and PIN for the vast majority of our transactions.

Paying for your journey has never been easier or safer using Apple Pay. Gone are the days of searching for your wallet. The wasted moments finding the right card. Now you can use your credit cards, store credit cards and rewards cards with just a touch, from one device.

Apple Pay is simple to use and works with the cards you already have on the devices you use every day. Because your card details are never shared when you use Apple Pay – in fact, they are not stored on your device at all – using Apple Pay on your iPhone or Apple Watch is a safe and private way to pay.

Apple Pay works with most of the major credit and debit cards from the top UK banks. Just add your participating cards to Wallet and you will continue to get all the rewards, benefits and security of your cards.
If you want to set up Apple Pay please visit Apple’s website.

We now accept Credit / Debit Cards as well as Apple Pay in ALL of our vehicles. There is a charge of £1.00 for transactions up to £20.00 and a 5% charge of the total fare for journeys over £20.00. This charge is levied by Verifone the terminal provider, not by Thomas Whiteside & Sons Ltd.
