Best way to meet your taxi driver

The best way to meet your Airport taxi driver

Part of the service when you book with us for Just Airports

The question that we get many times is “how do I find my airport taxi driver?”, this information is sent to you via email at the point of booking your airport taxi transfer. But as many customers do not choose to look at all of the information when it arrives we thought it best to write about the airport taxi driver and what he does before he meets you in the airport.

Stage 1. The airport taxi booking.

The customer enters their information and makes the booking online at www.airportcars-uk.com. Once made the information is held in a date and time format and not looked at until we are due to dispatch it to the airport taxi driver. So if your information has been given incorrectly by you, we will not be aware. Common mistakes are; wrong dates, times and flight information which are not seen until a few hours before.

Stage 2. The airport taxi transfer has been sent to a driver.

When we send out the bookings to the taxi drivers they many receive information about more than 5 journeys in an row. We will have worked out the times and distances using the information given by the person that made the booking. This is why correct information about your airport taxi is important.

Stage 3. The driver checks the flight given for the airport taxi pickup.

Based on the information given, the taxi driver will then check the flight landing time, after the flight has landed most drivers will send a text/sms to the number given.

Stage 4. The airport taxi driver will go in to the airport.

At around 30 minutes after landing the taxi driver will park and go in to the arrivals hall where he will wait with the name given on a sign board.



Read the information provided

It has become a big problem that passengers or people that book taxi transfers for others do not read the information about the car type’s. The amount of passengers and there luggage being one of the issues. The other main issue is correct information when they are making there booking.

  1. Bag size are on the website under car types + luggage.
  2. When booking for an airport pick up the site asks for flight arrival date and time.

Passengers would help themselves get the best out of the service if they checked out the information on the car type’s first. After all why would you book an MPV8 when you only have 6 passengers. The MPV7 has 7 passenger seats and the same luggage space as the MPV8 but is cheaper.

But by far the biggest problem is with bag sizes. When an estate car gets booked we state the amount of large bags and the amount of carry on bags, however passengers then assume that large is the biggest bag you can buy. No No No that is not the case this is why we have the car type + luggage page for people to find out the information.

Date and Time issue’s

When you book to be collected from an airport it is important to give flight arrival date and time information as we schedule the cars the day beforehand. If you have added time e.g. guesstimated when you think you will be out this causes problems. A driver may have a pick up from an address going to the airport we give him a pick up at the airport which should work out for him to get there and meet the passengers. However if the flight time has been given incorrectly +1 hour or so and then lands 30 early he will not be in the airport.

Which leads on to the next problem that passengers do not give the mobile number that is going to be turned on. Think about it communication and correct information make it all easy.
