I'm located in one of Yas Island's hotels in Abu Dhabi. I took some taxi trips so far, but I was quite surprised that in such modern country (as I understand, UAE is) none of the taxis / taxi corporations accepts credit card payments (none of these, I used so far). Cash only is accepted.
Tomorrow I need to take a taxi ride to Dubai and back, which -- I was told -- will cost me around 600-800 AED both ways. I'd like to pay that much money with my company credit card, not in cash.
Is there any reliable cab corporation in Abu Dhabi which I could call to order taxi and be sure that it will have credit card terminal / reader? Or is Uber the only option in this case?
The same question goes for my return trip, i.e. on finding cab corporation which accpets credit card payments in Dubai.
