Made our holiday
Initially I was worried about landing with my family and the car not turning up, then the flight was delayed by over an hour and that added more worry. Whilst i was still waiting to board I received a text message from the taxi company saying that the flight was delayed and they were tracking it. When I landed I received a text message with the driver contact details, his arrival time and his photo!! When we came through he was standing there with our name on a smart looking tablet! He was great, he ran us around during our stay a few times and we had him again when it was time to leave. Michelle
Booked my transfer with ridetransferdirect.com and the process couldn’t have been easier, One thing that surprised me was that I could track the vehicle in real time from the SMS message they sent me when the car was dispatched, impressive! Steve.
