A word from the Owner.
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?'
No 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.
All our drivers have many years' experience driving in London. They are all licenced by PCO (London Public Carriage Office).
