POLL: Airport Car Service

Realizing this is completely unscientific, below is a list of car services that have generally received overall positive comments on this forum. Comments, suggestions, recent experiences?

www.london-transfers.com

www.skyexpresscars.net

www.handicars.co.uk

www.justairports.com

www.exclusiveairports.com

www.swisscottagecars.com

www.expressways.co.uk

Note: Ray's London Transfers has recently been mentioned by a couple of people because they were unable to get any confirmation of the reservation, however, one poster said that Ray has updated his computer system so as to avoid these problems.

Note: I have removed Simply Airports from the list as recently there seems to be a significant number of negative comments about them.

From my own experience, we used Exclusive Airports last year and were happy with their service.

HANDICARS

I estimate that I've used Handicars for airport trips around 300 times since 1986. In those trips I've once had a car that arrived late and had to be repeatedly chased, and once had a new driver who didn't know where he was going.

I believe from previous posts that there are 2 Simply Airports -one with a hyphen in the URL, one without. IIRC it is the one without that is OK (but it would be useful if whoever posted positively recently could verify).

http://www.simplyairports.co.uk/ is the posher company that gets very few mentions here.

Interestingly I can't seem to find a link to the other Simply which could mean they have been taken over or have closed down...or it could just mean my Googling skills are lacking.

I too used Exclusive Airports last year and was very impressed. I plan on using them again next month. Great price and friendly on-time driver!

We used simply airports last April and it's was just fine. No problems at all in any way. Plan to use them again next month. What problems are there?

My question would be, why do you use the service? Aversion to public transport? Large number of travelers? I've never used one so just wondering.

CanadianRockiesNut,

My mistake, apparently there was another simply airports that was receiving negative reviews.

This one appears to be fine: http://www.simplyairports.co.uk/

Have used justairports.com a number of times both to and from Gatwick and Heathrow. The latest being September 28th. They have always been on time and in the right place. I find that their response to email is very good and quick.

Peg, I'd only use one for a very early flight when using public transport is no option.

I've used Ray's twice and was content with the service. Both times we (I) used him because of too much luggage for one person to schlep across London.
