tipping taxi driver

OK, I've booked a taxi for stupid o'clock later this week and have pre-paid it. Don't use taxis that often, but when I did, I generally rounded up the fare, pretty standard I thought.

But, now we're not supposed to be using cash, do I tip the driver in cash anyway, or what? I've had cash in my purse since March, which I used in the self service till yesterday annoyingly, so I'll need to go and get some more if I'm going to have cash to tip.

What are people doing/what would taxi drivers prefer these days?

Cash is fine. Why would you not use cash? confused

because everywhere is asking us not to use cash? Limit contact etc

I think it would be very difficult to work as a taxi driver and eschew cash! Just tip him/her in cash. If they are smart they will be protecting themselves with hand sanitiser etc.

that's what I had assumed wombat, but this particular firm seems to be pre-book and pre-pay only, so I wondered if there was a new way of doing things these days. Have only really done London cabs up till now, which all accept card payments, so easy enough to add a tip. Pre-paying has flummoxed me a bit!
