We will do this automatically and for the same price. If you are booking for an event like a race day or music festival or if you are booking a large vehicle, we recommend you book as far in advance as possible to guarantee your booking.

Are there any time restrictions? 

No, we operate 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

What are ‘one-way’, ‘return’ and ‘hourly’ bookings? 

A one-way booking is a single journey from A to B, such as from the airport to your hotel. The price is based on the number of miles driven. A return booking is a two-way journey from A to B and back again, such as from the airport to your hotel and then back from the hotel to the airport a few days later. An hourly booking is a booking for a period of time during which you can direct your driver. The price is based on the number of hours the car is hired for and includes a specific number of miles per hour.

Where do I meet my driver when I land at the airport? 

Your driver will be waiting for you in arrivals holding a 'Meet & Greet' board with your name clearly written on it. Ensure you provided a working mobile number and your phone is switched on. We will try and contact you if we have any difficulty finding you. Please take a note of our phone number this is sent in your booking confirmation email so you can ring us should you need to.

Where do I meet my driver when I land at the airport? 

When do I need to be at the airport? We advise you get to the airport as early as possible. You should always allow 30 minutes to get through security. 

  • Long-haul and El Al: three hours before scheduled departure
  • European flights: two hours before scheduled departure
  • UK and Ireland flights: 90 minutes before scheduled departur

How much time do I need to leave from my flight landing to booking a taxi? 

The time can vary quite a lot depending on airport and time of day. We recommend you book for 30 to 45 mins after you land but that you also give us your flight number. Our experienced drivers will know how long you need to come out of the terminal.

Do you need to know the flight number or terminal building? 

It is best for you to provide us with the flight number or airline name, from this we can work the rest out. Do not worry if you don't know the terminal number.

Am I charged if my flight is delayed? 

No, we do not charge you any extra if your flight is delayed. We always check your arrival time before we dispatch your driver.

How long will the driver wait for me? 

Your ride includes 15 minutes’ waiting time for standard pickups and 45 minutes for airport pickups (unless otherwise stated). Even if your driver has arrived early, your included waiting time starts from the time you booked your ride.

How much waiting time do I get with additional pickup and drop offs? 

Each via allows five minutes of waiting time per pick up, the driver may charge extra if this is exceeded. Costs are at the discretion of drivers. If you require additional waiting time, this should be agreed with the transport company before the booking takes place.

I have a lot of luggage, will it fit? 

If you are not sure your luggage will fit in the vehicle you've selected, it probably won't. The best option when booking with large amounts of luggage is to book the next available vehicle size up. For example, if you are booking a saloon, book an estate. If you are booking a six-seater MPV book an eight-seater minibus and if you are booking a twelve-seater minibus book a sixteen-seater minibus. The price difference is often not that much greater, and it will ensure you have a more comfortable ride. And remember, if you are booking with a return you may have more luggage on the way home.

Do I get a driver with a minibus or coach? 

Yes. All our ground transport bookings come with a driver. We do not offer a rental service.

What do I do if I am not happy with your service? 

We hope that this will never happen, however if you are in such a situation please email enquiries@execorptransfers.uk with your full details

Will I receive confirmation of my journey? 

When booking online, you will receive an email confirming your journey with our fleet followed by a phone call confirming your allocated driver. I have not received my booking confirmation email?
The first thing to do is check your spam folder, if you can't find your email, you can find your booking please email enquiries@execorptransfers.uk
