Almost all Silver Service taxis accept a variety of payment methods, including:
  • Cash
  • Cabcharge
  • Major credit and debit cards

To ensure accurate detailed receipts and for the security of your data, we recommend that all Cabcharge, credit and debit card payments are made using the Cabcharge electronic Fareway™ mobile EFTPOS terminal in the taxi.
