Passengers, once in the terminal arrival hall should proceed to the information desk and look for the driver holding a sign with their name on it.

If a flight is due to take-off after the driver has departed to collect (eg for short-haul and internal flights) and there is an undue delay, waiting time will be incurred from 1 hour after the original ETA and not from the revised ETA.
Waiting time is implemented on all reservations after 15 minutes from the designated time of collection, except for airport collections. Any journey deviations will be charged for at the appropriate rate. If a passenger does not show for a booking, the job will be charged in full.

All cancellations made outside of our normal office hours will be subject to a 50% charge unless within three hours of the scheduled time, in which case a full charge will be made. Once the driver has departed to collect a passenger and the drive is subsequently cancelled the job will be charged in full.
