Choosing an Airport Transfer Taxi Service

Have you considered the benefits of booking an airport transfer taxi for your next trip leaving from Heathrow? How do you choose the best taxi service to get you to and from the airport? Here are a couple of pointers to help you reserve a reliable and comfortable service to get your next trip off on the best foot.

Stellar Reputation

A well established airport transfer taxi service will have a stellar reputation based on their previous service delivered to clients. This is easy enough to check out either through their website testimonials or by asking for a contact of a satisfied customer which you can quickly check out yourself. Try asking for one of their corporate or business clients which they provide a regular service for – this can be easier than disclosing contact details of individual travellers. What’s more, clients with a business account with the taxi service clearly use them frequently and will be able to provide better and more current feedback on the service which they have received.

Vehicle requirements

If you’re travelling as a family, with loads of luggage, or in a group, make sure to enquire about the right size of vehicle being available. Various service providers use MPVs for large families and their luggage, but not all provide vehicles capable of catering for 8 or more travellers, so check beforehand whether the service provider will be able to deal with your particular requirements in terms of the number of people who are going to the airport.

Easy and problem-free payment

Enquiring beforehand allows you to comparison shop and negotiate the best deal based on the day and time of your flight, the number of people travelling, and exactly where you’ll be leaving from. A reputable company providing an airport transfer taxi Walton on Thames to Heathrow will be able to give you an exact price for the journey beforehand, with no hidden extras or other costs to surprise you on the day. You should also look for easy methods of payment, such as credit and debit cards, or even PayPal, rather than having to worry about having cash ready on the day you travel.

Professional drivers

Service providers should be employing professional drivers for airport transfers.  A driver who is licenced and has passed a CRB check is certainly more reliable and desirable than simply someone filling in for their uncle or a regular driver, for example. Reputable service providers make sure their fleet of vehicles is driven by professionals – for your peace of mind, comfort and convenience. Again, this is something you can check quickly and easily prior to booking any airport transfer service.
