If you are about to travel from Oxford to London Heathrow airport, then keep in mind that distance is not less. If there is traffic on the roads, the car may take 1 hour to reach there or maybe a bit more. It simply means that no one like to take a risk by travelling on a bus. It is because the bus has many stops in between. So, it is not easy to get an idea when you are going to reach an airport. It is when the chances of missing flight increase, so the better option is travelling thorough taxi or minibus service that is offered by the same companies. Taxi service is more suitable as you don’t have to share a ride with anyone and you feel more comfortable. But there are few who don’t have enough budget, so for them, minibus service is perfect.
Those who live there and plan to go to an airport in your own car, as they think it is cheap is not 100% true. If someone is dripping you off there, then it is ok, but if you are driving on your own, then it is not a good option. Because you will have to park your car at an airport, it means you will have to pay for that. Also, you don’t have an idea of how whether anyone will take care of your car or not. Here, it doesn’t mean that riding in a taxi is perfect. The only time it is perfect when you take a service from a reliable company. So, while hiring a taxi service, there are a few things that you have to keep in mind, such as:
Reviews of previous clients about the company
It is an important thing to check before trusting any company. It is one thing that clear a lot of things about the company in front of you. It is seen that even is some company has experience in this field, they don’t treat their clients well. Their only motive is to earn. Even if some reviews are negative, it is an alarming situation for you.
When you look at the reviews closely, the other thing that comes clear to you is whether the company always provide the service on-time or not. Because while travelling you can ignore other things but reaching at the airport late and missing the flight is one thing that no one wants. It is one thing that is the worst nightmare of any client. So, make sure you check these details before contacting any company.
Whether the company has a license or not
There are two ways of running any business, you can run it legally, or you can run it illegally—no one like to get a service from a company that is not working legally. So, at the time you are hiring a company, check the license of the company or ask them about it. If the company have one, they will not feel offended by your demand. But if there is something wrong, they may try to ignore you. In short, travel with the company that is authorized is a safe option. Because in case something went wrong, you can take action legally.
Check the fleet
While travelling the need of every person is different, by keeping this in mind the companies arrange the cars. So, before hiring, ask the company which cars they have for you. If they don’t have a car that you need, then better move on to the next company because otherwise, you are just wasting your money.
Affordable or not
It is another point that you should check before contacting any company. There is a little difference in price company to company. But a huge difference is alarming, so make sure that you are not paying extra and the amount is fixed too. Ask the company to send you text about the fare.
