Will Glasgow taxi drivers give a receipt if asked? Need it to be reimbursed the fare. Thanks

Normally yes. It is quite normal to ask for a taxi receipt. The might even sign you a song if you ask nicely.

You haven't heard me sing Ron!!! But yes a receipt is there for the asking.

Just remember if you intend to tip mention that first and the driver will include it within the receipt. e.g if it is £4:60 and you say make it a fiver he will make the receipt for a fiver, your Company won't know any different.

Madscotsman, do all Glasgow "black hacks" now have the facility to pay by card? Cheers

Sorry Johnboy but chip and pin payment is very much a rarity amongst Glasgow's 1400+ fleet of Black Hacks, still very much a cash or Account business although we are coming into the 21st century with Web booking and Apps.

If when you phone to book you mention you are paying by card they will send you one but you are diminishing your chances of getting one quick.

Hamden Cabs have actually got a free App now which allows you to pay by card up front, check the status of your taxi and actually track it on a map. It's pretty nifty!
