    Do taxis take credit cards? Any issues you have had with a refit card and a taxi in Vegas, other than them wanting cash?

    lots do, but not all. when they do they have a logo on their window or whatever to advertise. if you need one that accepts CCs from the airport, let the guy running the taxi line know and he'll make sure you get put with one.

    Also, Las Vegas taxis add on a $3-ish service charge for running a credit card (which is complete nonsense, but I digress). And yeah, if you're coming from the airport, just tell the guy up front that you need a credit card taxi, and they'll point you in the right direction; this should work at hotels as well. But honestly, I tend to just stick to cash in Vegas cabs. That extra charge really rankles me.

    I always do cash for a taxi in Las Vegas. Some of the taxis do have that swing-arm card reader, but not all. I'm just in the habit of paying cash for taxi rides.

    Like they said... some take it. Some surchage.

    For $15-$20, we just do cash.
