London and Southampton Cruise Ship Shuttle

Queen Mary 2, Southampton Cruise Terminal

A Large Minivan transfer shared with just 2 or 3 other couples sailing on the same Southampton cruise. Our London and Southampton Transfer Shuttle is truly 'Door to Door', with pick-up /drop off at your own Central London Hotel or private address

Reviews

We do not use large touring coaches running all over London making endless stops. This is almost a limo service, but cheaper than the cruise lines' own motor-coach Southampton transfer. 

We have become a very popular alternative for overseas visitors staying over in London and making their own arrangements for a Southampton Shuttle Transfer service.

A word from the Owner.

Tony Hayter, Owner, Silver Fleet Transfers Ltd

We are very proud of our long reputation for providing well organised, and prompt London and Southampton transportation to and from all popular cruise ships berthed at Southampton, Dover and Harwich. We operate according to some basic principles....

Be on time - We know that you will be feeling quite anxious about your transfer. So we schedule our drivers to be ready a few minutes early. Before you've thought about 'what happens when they don't show up?'

Shuttle TicketNo surprises - The price you see, is the price you pay. No hidden extras or later surcharges.

No cancelations - We will never cancel a Southampton Shuttle Transfer after the first customer has booked. Even if we end up with just a single client, we will still very happily do the transfer!

Respond swiftly - We will respond to enquiries within one working day. Most times we will reply the same hour - and at weekends.

Generous refund policy. No quibble, no forms to complete, no hoops to jump through. If you have to cancel your booking 15 days or more before travel, just email me (no reason needed), and I will make you the 100% refund on the same day.

I personally drive one of our vans between London and Southampton every day and look forward to making your acquaintance on your transfer. Thank you for making your Southampton Shuttle Transfer booking with us.

Tony Hayter
