Customer Reviews


We were very impressed with the whole experience. We thought it was excellent value for money, and much cheaper than getting a cab to and from the airport. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. On our way to the airport our journey took longer than expected and when we phoned to explain you could not have been more helpful and understanding. We will certainly use you again and will recommend you to all our friends who travel from City Airport. Many thanks.

Really impressed with the overall service. It would be better if the £7 exit fee was mentioned prior to booking..otherwise fantastic!

Ms Van der Spuy Tuesday 24 Nov 2015 at 09:18 (5 out of 5)


When I printed off the confirmation slip the telephone number I should ring before arrival wasn't readable....possibly due to my printer but perhaps it could be in a more prominent or repeated somewhere
