All the Airports are our main clients and we do receive a large amount of regular work from them on regular basis. Airport journeys are slightly different from a typical city to city transfer or travelling within your home city. We would like to provide you a clear picture of how we work with airport trips.
Flight can be ON TIME, EARLY, DELAYED or CANCELLED. When we receive client’s airport booking request, on the day we regularly check the status of flight’s live tracking so our customer can get picked time on time. We use official airport’s website for accurate information for estimated or exact time of landing.
We always allocate first 60 minutes FREE waiting time in customer’s airport booking. This allows customers to go through immigration and collect their luggage without any rush.
When we provide our customer a quotation, which has an airport selected as a pick up address we always give you the price including first 60 minutes FREE parking too.
First 60 minutes waiting time and first 60 minutes free parking time starts as soon as flight status shows “LANDED”. Example: if your flight was scheduled for 05:15pm at Heathrow Airport but flight landed at 06:11pm. Your first Free 60 minutes time will start from 06:12pm. If your flight lands early then we will use your actual “LANDED” time to start the free allowance time.
After the first free allowance we will charge you waiting time for any extra time. A fixed charge of £20 will be applied for up to every 60 minutes, and will continue until driver starts their journey.
Any additional parking charges other than the first 60 minutes will need to be paid separately to cover the extra time in the car park.
When our driver(s) arrives at the airport they are required to take an evidence of their presence at the airport. This helps us to monitor their time management skills and performance. A GPS location of their current location at the time of arrival always get saved, also when they leave the airport to start their journey.
Meet and greet service
We do offer customer a meet and greet service where one of our professional driver(s) will come inside the airport in arrivals area or at any agreed meeting point with meet and greet sign or tablet in their hand which will have a customer’s name written on it. Our professional driver will then help you with your luggage and assist you by the car. (Additional charges apply for this service. Charges are various depends on the airport)
Our Fixed journeys
We offer reduced price for long distance airport trips to save customer money and it’s a great way to bring the customer back and help to increase the business. So, we DO NOT CHARGE you exactly per mile for a long-distance trip which will cost customer a lot of money. We check the actual distance from your home address to the airport of your choice or any long-distance address (80 miles and over) then we apply discount of up to 20% on customer’s quotation and offer them a reasonable price for their journey
