Premier are first yet again, this time to introduce the fastest payment system available anywhere. Whenever you're in Blackpool, Lytham or St Annes you don't need to carry cash for your taxi fare you can pay using any Major Debit or Credit Card, in the cab, at no extra charge, in a second!

With a tap of your contactless card, a quick swipe using Apple Pay or with chip & pin for journeys over £30, all methods are at no extra charge!

All Premier Taxis now have contactless card terminals so no more waiting around sorting out payment, simply tap & go in a second!

Contactless card payments can be made for all journeys up to £30. For journeys over £30 the Chip & Pin method can be used.

Contactless payments are fully protected by your bank. You can find out more about Contactless payments on the UK Card Association Website.

Payment Methods

  Chip & Pin

Chip & Pin is the safe and secure way to pay for journeys costing over £30. All vehicles on our fleets across Blackpool, Lytham and St Annes have Chip & Pin machines on board.

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.

  Apple Pay

Hold your iPhone or Apple Watch next to our card readers to pay in seconds using Apple Pay at no extra charge.

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.


Accreditation is important. All of all of our Chip and PIN machines and our Payment Processor conform to the demanding PCIDSS standards.
