Do taxis accept credit cards?

Catching a taxi tomorrow from the airport to hotel. I have read the FAQ re how to catch a taxi but can't see whether or not they accept credit card. Not bothered about fees as this is a business trip.

The fares are so cheap its never going to be worthwhile for a driver (or a co-op) to accept cards.

Hi,

... and they don't "do" receipts either.. a FEW companies I know (taxis are co-operatives and operate under a concessionaire license from the city government) do have official receipts-- but that is VERY, few and far between... and usually require advance arrangement.

They call it a "tax receipt" as it shows the amount you paid, but also the amount of tax paid, and the sellers business ID to which to the tax was collected and theoretically remitted accordingly.

For those types of transactions, like it is for BTS, MRT and ARL, there's no real "receipt" given (in the case of BTS/ARL/MRT you do get one if you buy a pass or add value, but not on single ticket purchases)

Travel Safe,

Better to have cash on hand, but not too much cash. Min. your use of that plastics if you can because funny charges will show up when you get back home.
