Airport Meet and Greet Service
Due to the ever-increasing car parking charges at UK Airports our in-terminal Meet and Greet service will be an additional £10.00 on top of the quoted fare regardless of vehicle class except at East Midlands Airport, Luton Airport and Stansted Airport. Car parking charges at these airports will apply at cost price due to the high charges now being implemented.
Passengers failing to show up 1.5 hours after the confirmed arrival time will be charged for the transfer and parking costs if they do not inform us of delays at customs or immigration by telephone. We may also leave after this time period for our other travel. Passengers should notify us if they did not board at the earliest opportunity.
