We drop you off right at your ship, where the porters take your luggage. 

This same Service is available the day prior to most cruises too, in which case we drop you off at your chosen hotel in Southampton. (we may drop others at their ship before dropping at hotels if we chose to combine services).

WeTony Hayter, Owner, Silver Fleet Transfers Ltd are very proud of our reputation for providing well organised, and prompt London and Southampton transportation to and from all popular cruise ships berthed at Southampton. We do everything possible to provide all our customers with a memorable service.  We operate according to some important basic principles....

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; taxes; tolls 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 - even at weekends.

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 the 100% refund on the same day. (30 days for vehicles with more than 8 passengers)

No Luggage limit. You will bring substancial luggage - because you're on a cruise and need a lot of stuff. All we ask is you tell us at point of booking the amount of luggage and we will ensure the vehilce is large enough. We will gladly take pedestrian wheelchairs and electric scooters, but you MUST tell us in advance.

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

Tony Hayter - Owner.
