We advise that you Book your Airport Transfer at least 24 hours before your journey, that gives us time to organize a car at our busy periods for you, and also gives you enough time to prepare yourself.

As we are strictly a prebook taxi (minicab) airport transfer service our booking system will not allow you to book an on demand fare, our minimum turn around is 24 hours. If you try to book a taxi before 24 hours from the date and time of booking the system will generate an error message and will not allow you to get a quote. Although we understand that sometimes its not possible due to unforeseen circumstances but we strongly believe that planning your taxi transfer ahead gives us the ability to provide customers with a better experience, a better price for the fare and a much more safe and comfortable journey.

Yes, indeed. All our drivers park their cars in the airport car park and meet and greet our passengers at the domestic or international arrivals hall at no extra cost.

Our drivers will allow you 30 minutes free waiting time; we monitor all flights to make sure the driver only enters at the requested time, so we do advise that you take into account getting through passport control, as this can sometimes take longer than expected; So lets say your flight landed at 06:00am, and you requested the car for 60 minutes after landing, the driver would enter the car park at 07:00am, and you would then have until 07:30am for free, anytime after the 30 minutes we will charge you £2.00 every 10 minutes.

We try to be as understanding as possible with our passengers and our drivers, so we feel that this measure is very important to maintain a fair approach.

No, We guarantee all our passengers with 30 minutes free car park at all major airports, if for the unfortunate reason our passengers take longer, the driver will just collect the difference. This helps us to maintain a fair and professional level of service.
