messageAirport Direct Services - recommended!
Posted by lemonellen 15 July, 2011 16:53

I used Airport Direct Services to collect me from Gatwick this week (following a recommendation on here). Brilliant, efficient and friendly booking service. Arrived at Gatwick at midnight and was met by a courteous driver in a luxury car - and all for half the price of the rather more hit and miss Addison Lee.

Only wish I'd had this number before now - 0800 135 7533

Yes, I also booked them at fairly short notice for my husband's delayed flight at Heathrow. Agreed, very good service!

I would also highly recommend-agree with all points already mentioned and also get courtesy text to tell you car is on way-very reassuring if you are on your way to an airport
I would use again

Agreed - I've used them before and was really impressed with their professionalism. Immaculate car, driver dressed really smartly and a very nice guy.

I did the same journey a year ago with Addison Lee and it was 90.

We used them to go to and from the airport for our honeymoon. Great prices, an upgrade for mentioning the EDF when booking, and lovely driver. A stark contrast to Addison Lee, who failed to send the executive car we'd booked to take me to the wedding, tried to cancel the booking altogether, charged us for a cab cancelled well in advance because of their own slow processes and gave appalling customer service when we complained, telling us we hadn't spent enough. Thank goodness for Airport Direct who were a breath of fresh air.

Taking a trip to the airport on Jan 1st? Maybe going out late on the 31st? Worried about how to get there at a reasonable cost and a reliable service? If the answer is 'yes', look further than ADS executive cars!!
We are not charging double, we are not charging a fare and a half!
We will only charge a 10 supplement on your fare for 31st December - 1st January. We are getting pretty booked up so please call now for more info/bookings.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!!!smiling smiley

I've used ADS a couple of times now for journeys to and from different airports. Both times they were totally reliable, very competatively priced and friendly.

I use a wheelchair and they were really helpful and patient with both it and me! (unlike some cab firms).

I can't recommend them highly enough. Thanks Tony and happy new year to you all.

ADS now wish to offer child and baby seating free in our vehicles throughout the Months of February and March if you book at least 72hrs in advance. We will still provide seating at short notice for a nominal fee(2), and around the clock Airport and Train Transfers, as well as long haul trips too.
In the near future we shall be offering 'ROAD MILES' to frequent travellers(both buisness and pleasure trips) to make travelling the ADS style even more rewarding!
Will keep you postedsmiling smiley

Hi everybody, and thankyou for continuing to use ADS for your airport taxi/station needs...
Due to the high cost of running our vehicles we have had to make an increase in our fares to keep us in business.
It is just a small increase of 1 from 39 to 40 for terminals 1 to 4 at heathrow and 45 for term 5(up from 44).
Please note that these fares are for going to the airport and not for return pickups...Please call us on 02079678698 for details on pickup fares!
These changes will be effected immediately and our new and improved website shall detail the changes therein.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, our current website host (contasta uk) has seized trading for a few months now and that has prevented us from updating these and other changes for a while. However, in a few days time all will be rectified and we can continue to concentrate on serving you as we have done.
So do bear with us for a few more days...
Thankyou

ADS

It might be helpful if I share my experience and problems with ADS Airport Direct Services.

I booked a journey to the airport through the online web form, assuming it would be at the price they published on their website. The booking confirmation come by email and did not mention anything regarding costs.

As it turns out they intended to charge a much higher price, which I only found out by phoning them to confirm. In the ensuing discussion they brought forward a number of rather remarkable viewpoints:

  • The price list on the web site is four years old, hence I must know that the prices are no longer valid (how I should even know when it was updated they didn't explain)
  • They will update their website in a few weeks (sorry my precognition wasn't working well on the day; also two months later it still wasn't updated)
  • The published website only states minimum prices (in fact it doesn't state anything like that)
  • A contract is only binding if it's signed (no comment)

    Once booked and paid their service may be good but I would recommend to be careful about their prices, business practices and legal understanding.

    Just used ADS for an early morning trip to Heathrow - thumbs up all round. Communication was good beforehand (email and text) and the price for our slightly fiddly 3 pick ups was clearly explained. Very nice driver, good price and an all round good experience (oh, we forgot to ask for a receipt - it was 6am after all - and it was posted to us the next day)
    thumbs up

    Hi Folks and thankyou all for continuing to support us at ADS. We cherish your business dearly and hope we can serve you better still in the coming years.
    We will be sending out a questionaire regarding our services and in particular, the intended car sharing scheme we hope to start in the new year(summer).
    We welcome all your views on this-negative or positive and hope to understand better the needs of the local community as we do London, in general.
    It basically will ask EDF readers if it is a good idea or not!
    The details will be made public in a few months and tries to understand whether it is right to have 3, 4, or even 5 cars all leaving ED at 5am for example, then another 3 or 4 leaving at 5.15am and so on, when maybe some could share a car which would save added costs to both environment and one's pocket - and earn the driver a little extra.
    Fares for cab sharing would start from as low as 20 to Heathrow and 25 to Gatwick depending on the number of pickups!

    Watch this space for more news

    Thankyou
