Worldwide, travelling has become an important part of life. The most versatile and fast growing form is travelling by air. Regularly people are using air travel to go to areas of the world where they do not have the necessary support infrastructure in place to look after them while they are on the ground. While the reliability of airlines and most international hotels can be taken for granted, meaning that the average traveller does not have to worry when making reservations for those services it is often not the case for ground travel at our destinations. Most travellers are left with the options of either, relying on the public transportation system, renting a car , using an airport taxi service or london cabs.
Airport car services can be obtained mainly in one of two ways, either by pre-booking or calling for a taxi on arrival.
Calling for a car on arrival has its advantages. There is no need to worry about extra charges should the flight be delayed or should it arrive early. This could often translate into reasonable savings in time and money resulting from charges for a car waiting for you at the airport if your flight arrives late or you spend more time than expected at customs and immigration. And time cost when the car arrives late for one reason or the other or in the event of your flight arriving early.
When calling for london cabs on arrival it is important to realise that although most airport are doing their best to eliminate taxi touting, it is still prevalent. Touting taxis are illegal and do not operate within the country’s laws. For this reason they are a huge risk to use. The risk of using such means of transport inadvertently cannot be over emphasised. Along with the inherent risks come opportunistic and exorbitant charges. It is for this reason that it is strongly recommended that pre-booked taxis should be used whenever possible.
Pre-booked airport taxis or london cabs are the recommended way of travelling from to and from the airport. Most reliable airport taxi companies have an online presence with efficient booking facilities. This makes it easy to book and pay for your travel, encouraging advance planning and effective budgeting.
Before booking with an online company it is important that you run a few checks just to be sure. Make sure that the company has a contact telephone number on their website. Ensure that it is stated that this number will give you access to a human agent 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A free phone is always preferable to avoid running up cost . You will always find a phone in the airport lounge which will allow calls to a free phone number. If you cannot find your driver at the designated pick up point and time then you need to call the office to find out what the situation is. Without a phone number this is impossible.
Ensure that they have a physical address in the location you require their service. This gives credibility to the company. Any company that does not have a physical address is probably not the best company to buy your transfer from , since they may not be directly responsible for delivering the service.
Most people will just tick the button requesting a acknowledgement of reading the terms and conditions. This is a mistake that should be avoided. You do not have to read everything but make sure you read the areas that directly affect your transfer and payments. The refund policy is a must read. What you need to find out here is what happens if your transfer is cancelled or if you need to change travel dates.
The designated pick up point for the transfer must be clear and convenient. Only use services who are quite clear and concise on this detail.
It might take a bit longer for you to find a company that ticks all the boxes but it is important that most of the conditions are met.
Once you have found some companies that qualify then all you need to do is compare the prices and go with the best fit.
