- Will I be charged extra if my flight is delayed?
No, we do not charge you any extra if your flight is delayed. We will monitor your arriving flight as well as the traffic conditions on the airport route. Our driver is usually dispatched one hour prior to the advertised landing times. The only time an additional cost may be incurred is if additional parking charges have occurred if you have booked the meet and greet service and not come to meet your driver within 1 hour of the official landing time. similarly if you have not been in communication with the driver and there are charges incurred at pickup point.
- Where will I meet my driver after landing at the airport?
If you have booked meet and greet, your driver will be waiting for you in the arrivals area with a meeting board. This is usually 30 minutes after the flight has been confirmed to land. We will also text / call you after the official arrival time with a more specific location. particularly if waiting outside the terminal in the pick up area. Please take a note of our phone number at the time of booking in the event you need to call us.
- Do I need to pay for parking?
Car parking is factored into the pickup cost if doing a meet and greet and allows for 1 hour waiting time. for pickup points which charge to wait, the first 15 minutes will be included and we will discuss a plan of how to avoid incurring any additional costs when booking. (Currently only applies to MAG airports including Luton, & Stansted) For Heathrow T2,3 &5 there is no pickup point so this is a meet & greet only. Cost will be given when quoted.
- If our plane is delayed will you still be there to collect us?
When you book with us we ask for a return flight number, so that we can monitor the incoming flight and alter our expected arrival time accordingly.
