The Taxi Driver says that I don't have 'sufficient credit'

Should you not have sufficient credit on your card at the time of payment the Taxi Driver will be alerted when they hold your card to their phone. You will either have to add credit to your card by logging into your Swift account and using Click and Collect; or, pay by an alternative method.

The Taxi Driver says that my card is 'blocked'

Your card may be blocked because it has been reported lost or stolen. At the time of payment, the Taxi Driver will be alerted when they hold your card to their phone. In this situation, you will need to pay with an alternative method. If you are sure that your card should be working, please contact Swift Support on 0345 075 6006.
