Where will my driver pick me up?

When you book your transfer you are able to enter your flight number which will let your driver know exactly where to pick you up. This is particularly important if you are flying into Heathrow and Gatwick as they both have more than one passenger terminal. Alternatively, when you are entering your pickup address, you can select one of the four terminals at Heathrow or Gatwick's North or South terminal.

If you are booking a transfer to the airport, your driver will wait for you outside your chosen address or inside the lobby of your hotel, anywhere in and around London.
