If you check your mobile phone, then our drivers will usually send a text containing their details so you would be able to contact them directly. Due to busy airports, you may not be able to locate your driver easily, in these cases, please contact the office and we will contact the driver to arrange another designated point – although this tends to happen rarely and most people are able to locate their driver on arrival. Alternatively, if you do not have a mobile telephone, please ask the information desk to page your driver.
