Visa promotes card payment in taxis
Olympics 2012 sponsor Visa saw an
opportunity to offer card payment to
passengers, supported by a fleet of liveried
taxis to promote the service. Offering card
payment to black taxi passengers is not yet
mandatory in the UK. However, that has not
stopped Visa from starting to offer this on a
large scale, supported via a fleet of liveried
taxis to promote the service. With the advent
of the Olympics, this is the perfect moment to
launch this activity, ensuring that they’re able
to offer card payment to visitors from around
the world in 2012.
“We want Londoners and tourists not to be restricted by the
cash they carry in their pockets. As we start to transition to
taxi card payments, there will be knock-on benefits to leisure
and business passengers.”

service at key moments in the day, a new virtual company introducing
employers to freelance staff (IT web designers, copywriters
and marketeers) used a combination of online and outdoor
to launch in London.
The Online campaign targeted both freelancers and
contractors at their desks. The outdoor element, a
heavyweight 500 taxi campaign, guaranteed reach of the
audience whilst they were receptive – in other words
outdoor, on the move, between meetings, having lunch
and socialising.
The online and taxi campaign proved a perfect combination
of hard working media for a hard working audience.
“This campaign was carefully designed to raise awareness of our brand,
as well as to encourage people to consider using their skills in a new and
interesting way. We wanted to do something light-hearted that would
engage and impact Londoners with a positive message – and starting
with a blitz on 500 taxis was something that worked well for us.”

Vodafone connects London with onboard taxi phone chargers
Vodafone delivered on a commitment to ‘keep Londoners
connected’ with an iconic London service: black cabs.
Vodafone combined the two by providing phone chargers
in branded cabs. In so doing, the company made a strong
statement that Vodafone’s service is as vital to keeping
London calling as cabs are to keeping London moving.
A recent London taxi count has revealed that this
campaign delivered on average 40% share of voice of taxi
campaigns seen across key locations. What’s more, it was
seen on 26% of all taxis (branded or unbranded) across
the count period.
“We are committed to offering London the best possible network. We have
already made hundreds of improvements to increase coverage, capacity and
reliability and now with our fantastic fleet of Union Jack cabs and their on-board
chargers which anyone can use, all Londoners will be able to see our
continuing commitment to the capital.”
