September 2018 Updates

Price Increase for 2019

Please could our customers note that as of the start of 2019 we will be increasing our prices. We realise that price increases are not popular and we hate to have to put our prices up. However continued pressure from fuel prices, increased insurance costs and the increased cost of general items and services like vehicle servicing and maintenance have forced us in to an increase. We will always target being the most affordable and the most reliable service that customers can get to or from Glasgow Airport. We will also continue to run our discounts often through the year to come and customers can still take advantage of those discounts. The exact increase on specific fares has not been decided yet but will generally be as follows:

Minimum Fare – £1 Increase

Short Distance up to 30 miles – £2 Increase

31 miles up to 50 miles – £4 Increase

51 miles up to 70 miles – £5 Increase

71 miles up to 90 miles £7 Increase

91 miles to 110 miles £9 Increase

Above 111 miles £10 followed by another £10 every further 100 miles travelled

These price increase guides will be subject to changes still and are not exact due to the nature of our pricing being based on set prices from area to area. This will result in the bulk of our customers paying between £2 and £4 extra for their journeys and takes account of inflationary changes over the last 3 1/2 years. Our new price update will be added to our price list and our booking system here on the website from the start of the year. Please note any bookings made before the start of the new year for next year can still be booked at our current prices.

Thanks

New Service Introduced

We have now introduced our new accompanied tours service with an aim of making it easier for people to see Scotland especially if they are on a tight schedule. The new service targets those who are coming to Scotland or other parts of the UK via Glasgow Airport.

The new service will consist on a driver and his/her vehicle being available to the party who use the service for a prearranged period while they stay in the UK. The service basically works by allowing people to book a car and driver for their transport needs while here in the UK.

The driver will transport the customers based on a route provided or agreed upon before their arrival. The driver will be with the customer for the whole period and will offer a tailored transport solution to customers who do not wish to spend time booking hire cars, buses, trains etc. The customer will either send us their required route and stop offs or they can submit to us where they wish to go. From here we will arrange or suggest the most appropriate routes and stops based on the information provided. This will result in the customers and driver travelling over a planned route where the customer can stop at attractions, take photographs and will be taken to their choice of accommodation. It will allow customers who are especially short of time to book a car for one, two, three or in some cases more than 3 days. Over these days the driver will take the customer where they wish to go and will also stop over night in the areas with the customers too. However our drivers may not be accommodated in the same accommodation due to prices unless the customer specifically requests this. If further information for this service is required then please feel free to contact us via our contact form with all the details for your trip so we can put a route map together along with a price.

May 2018 Updates

Car Park 2 Pick Up and Drop Off

Glasgow Airport have once again changed the parking arrangement for car park 2. Zone D, which is our preferred meeting point has now been marked out with 1H parking bays and the £2 for 10 min pick up has now been removed. The minimum cost is now £3 for 20 min minimum.

To avoid an increase of £1 in our prices we will now be picking up zones A and B (Red and Blue) as this area is still £2 for 10 min pick up time.

Alternatively customers can still be picked up and dropped off at Zone D but an additional £1 each way will be added to the cost of the journey.

Meet and Greet service can still be provided as before and the cost for this still remains the same at £6.

April 2018 Updates

Privacy Policy and GDPR Compliance

We have now put together and published our privacy policy which accounts for the EU’s new GDPR legislation related to privacy. This legislation is important and after Brexit the legislation will still be contained in British statue. As a result it will still apply to all areas where customers share data. This means everywhere consumer information is collected or processed there has to be appropriate policies in place. This means companies should be protecting customer data at every opportunity as securely as possible. We are in the process of auditing to ensure we can comply with this legislation. We do not share customer data with third parties except those we subcontract to provide transport on our behalf.

Please feel free to check back for updates on a regular basis. Please remember this legislation is due to become law on the 25th May 2018.

Further information is available by searching through google for GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Alternatively you can click this link to the Information Commissioner’s Office which provides further information on this change.

Live Bookings

Following the addition of our SSL certificate to our site we have now been able to bring a new booking widget to our bookings page. This will allow customers to book directly to our system with real-time availability and card payments handled via Stripe. At the moment we will be using it for a trial period to see if it is suitable and to check its functionality.
