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.

Choosing Your Airport Transfers

Posted by Airport Cars on October 18, 2014 at 6:52 am. Filed under: Airport Transfers,Top Tips,What to do

There are many ways to get to and from any airport. So what is the best way to choose which route to go?

Well, firstly, you need to decide which mode of transport is going to be best. Unless you happen to be travelling alone and travelling light, public transport is unlikely to be the easiest or most cost-effective way meaning that, for most of us, travelling by car is going to be the best way.

Business people discussing airport transfersEven once you have decided which mode of transport to use, you still need to decide which company to go with. For those looking to use an airport taxi, it is usually best to make sure that you choose a company who specialises in such journeys. Not only will choosing a dedicated company leave you sure that you are going to get to the right terminal without any stress but you may also find that dedicated airport transfer companies can wind up being cheaper too. However, just choosing a taxi firm that advertises airport runs is one thing – choosing an airport taxi company that specialises in specific airports is another one altogether.

By choosing airport transfers from a company who specialise in those specific trips, you will find that you have a driver who knows the very best routes at any time of day, ensuring you have the best chance of getting to the airport on time no matter what the traffic is like. Likewise, the cars themselves will be very much equipped to cater for those with all manner of different types of luggage.

The easiest way to choose your airport transfers is to get a quote, check their reviews and simply make sure that they have a great deal of knowledge and experience going to the exact airport you are headed to.

The Benefits of Our Airport Meet and Greet Service

Posted by Airport Cars on September 24, 2014 at 5:23 pm. Filed under: Meet and Greet,What to do

Travelling can be a stressful time, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the airport or city you’re travelling to or from. London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports are two of the largest and busiest airports in the world. It’s easy to see why passengers can get lost just looking for the exit, never mind finding their transfer! With multiple concourses and terminals – and hundreds of thousands of passengers passing through every day – navigating your way to your onward connection can be a logistical nightmare, especially with heavy luggage to haul.

Airport Cars UK’s meet and greet service offers the ultimate solution, to ensure you spend more time at your destination and less time looking for a way to get there!

When booking an airport taxi transfer, Airport Cars UK offers a meet and greet service to all passengers. Your professional and smartly dressed chauffeur will be waiting for you in arrivals to guide you to your awaiting taxi.

meet-and-greetHow Do I Find My Taxi?

When you book our meet and greet service, our drivers will be waiting for you just outside arrivals inside the airport terminal. Your driver will be holding a sign with your name on it. From time to time, the airport can be extremely busy, making it hard to spot your driver in the crowd. That’s why we ask for your mobile phone number at the time of booking, so our drivers can get in touch to confirm a more specific meeting point if you’re unable to find us.

There’s no need to head outside to the pickup and drop-off concourse – just stay by arrivals and our drivers will get in touch and come to find you if you get lost.

Once you’ve been greeted by your driver, you (and any fellow passengers in your group) will be personally escorted to your awaiting car. This allows you to continue your onward journey in minimal time – so whether you’re catching a connection or travelling to your end destination with us, our meet and greet service will ensure you find your way in plenty of time.
