Q. Do I need to take a car seat?

On request we can provide child booster seats (suitable for ages 3 - 9) but we do not supply infant car seats. We operate under the same regulations as the local bus companies where it is quite legal to have children under the age of three sit on parents / guardians lap. As such you do not have to use a car seat whilst on our vehicle.

Q. Do you store care seats while we are away?

If you do wish to take a car seat that is not a problem but please be aware that you will need to fit the seat, there may be a transfer of vehicle at Thurrock services and that we are unable to store the car seat for you whilst you are away.

Yes all our tickets are discounted, the more people travelling the cheaper it becomes per person. For more information please contact us on 01708 730 555. For large groups our vehicles are available for private hire.

Q. Why is the journey time to Heathrow Airport so long?

Why is the journey time to Heathrow so long? Our service to Heathrow Airport is operated in conjunction with National Express. We would collect you from your home address, along with other passengers on route. There may be a stop at Thurrock services where you would continue your journey to Heathrow Airport via Gatwick. There is no additional travel time involved going via Gatwick. We have looked into travel times, it is the same travel time if you were to travel either north or south round the M25. Also with train journeys they are not a 24 hour service and this would save you travelling in and out of London. Even by train with all stops and changes taken into consideration again the journey is about the same if not longer. For more information please contact our office on 01708 730 555.

Q. I have difficulties walking, and have a wheelchair can I take this on your bus?

I have difficulties walking, and have a wheelchair can I take this on your bus? Yes this not a problem we have limited space allocated for fold up wheelchairs. All our vehicles are standard mini buses, and there will be a large step to board our vehicles. If you are taking an electric wheelchair or a motorised scooter please contact our office with weight and dimensions, as some do not fit in our vehicle.

Q. How much luggage can I take?

How much luggage can I take? For each passenger travelling we allocate 1 item of hand luggage and 1 normal sized suitcase. If you wish to travel with additional luggage there is an additional charge to allocate the space on the vehicle for you. We ask for all additional luggage to be booked in advance to guarantee space on the vehicle. If you wish to travel with additional items other than suitcases please contact our office directly, and they will be able to confirm availability and any additional charges.

Q. Is there a limit to how much my case can weigh?

Is there a limit to how much my case can weigh? We do operate to health and safety requirements. The maximum weight the driver is allowed to lift is 23kg, this is the same with most airlines. If you cases are heavier, the driver may ask for your assistance to help load them onto our vehicle. For more information please contact our office on 01708 730 555.

Q. We are travelling from two different airports, am I able to book this as one ticket? Or do I need two separate tickets?

We are travelling from two different airports, am I able to book this as one ticket? Or do I need two separate tickets? Yes you can book this all on one ticket. On our “plan trip” section of our website it asks where you wish to be collected from and where you are going to. On the next step for the return journey, this will allow you to change the Airport.
