Overseas Transfer Services

 

Pre-booking for overseas Airport Transfer has become the top choice for holiday makers and business travellers alike. By doing such, they are freed from the extra charges of having the services of a foreign Airport Taxi thus ensuring you peace of mind.

Gatwick Taxi Services

Gatwick is known for having the second busiest airport in the UK and London’s second largest international airport, in terms of passenger numbers and air traffic. It has two terminals, North and South which is easily accessed by a shuttle service while the monorail transit system is still under construction. This airport is often the top choice for travellers who fly for business or leisure purposes.

Taxi options

Gatwick Airport is home to numerous taxi companies with differing price range according to their services. The standard taxi to Central Luzon may ask clients an amount of between £60 and even up to £100. Taxis and minicabs are exempted from the congestion charge so there is no need to pay for it but it is wise to double-check with the taxi company. Depending on the traffic conditions, usual trips take an hour.

For customers who are in the Home Counties, getting the services of the taxi to bring you to and from the airport can be financially practical compared to parking at the airport for the duration of the holiday. Just take this as an example; a taxi from Leatherhead in Surrey to Gatwick is likely to cost around £40. Usually, taxis may ask you more if you are travelling early or late in the day or on a Bank Holiday but this is by no means universal so it is worth shopping around.

There are taxi companies that ask additional charges for short term parking at the airport. If you are in need of someone to pick you up at the arrival’s hall and assist you with your baggage, it isn’t wrong to ask for the driver to wait outside. You can exchange mobile phone numbers in the event that you need to communicate with each other. But do not do this if there is increased security.

The majority of taxi companies working at the Gatwick work on a fixed rate system without hidden charges. They may accept either cash or credit card while some may also offer account facilities with invoices issued once in awhile when the credit limit has reached its maximum.

Taxi services can be booked through phone or online and you can specify if there is a need for child seats or swivel seats for the disabled passengers. You will be asked further details for your return flight so that the driver can check for delays before setting off.

Some taxi companies have executive or chauffeur driven cars for your convenience. Other features may include air conditioning, leather upholstery, Wi-Fi, DVD players and hand held games consoles which can be pre-ordered. And if you would want newspapers, water or snacks on your vehicle, just make such request upon booking.

Minicabs and Taxis

Minicabs differ from taxis as they cannot be hailed without prior bookings unlike taxis.

Both have to be licensed but minicabs need not have a meter so it is a priority to check how much you are likely to pay before setting off. It is highly discouraged to use minicabs with drivers who are touting for customs as this is illegal.
