Taxi/Transfer/Tour/Meet and Greet Service
Meet and Greet
Using our brand new 2011/12 model, wheelchair accessible minibuses, and with our close proximity to London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports, we are able to offer a superb meet and greet service for groups up to 14. From the airport we can transport you anywhere, from downtown London to much further afield. Our driver will act as guide and answer any questions you have, and unless you tell him otherwise, he is inclined to give you a running commentary of your journey (and just when all you want to do is sleep).
We also work closely with cruise companies to meet special needs clients at airports to take them to their hotel or cruise ship, and vice-versa. These trips can be booked independently if clients have arranged a pre or post-cruise extension.
Once at your hotel, we can provide half and full day tours where you can sit back and let someone else (who speaks the Queen’s English!) do the talking, driving and navigating. Downtown London is the favourite, but a close equal second comes places such as Bath/Stonehenge, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, Cambridge, Canterbury and Dover. Escorted tours can also be booked to see places as far as Chester, Wales, York, The Lake District, Edinburgh and Scotland. For our US/Canadian clients we would direct you to our US agent Ann Litt at www.Undiscoveredbritain.com based in Philadelphia. Also check the links page under the menus for further information that may be of use.

Taxis, Tours and Shore Excursions
Our taxi service uses the same large, brand-new multi-seat Renault minibuses (not the small ‘black cabs’) that can carry up to 8 passengers, which includes two wheelchair users. (or more if we use the larger 16 seat Mercedes for bigger groups). Day tours are available to the locations named earlier, and shore excursions/pre/post cruise trips can be arranged with notice from air or cruise ports.
The vehicles are trimmed and carpeted throughout and have on-board cold box, reclining seats and curtains. They are air conditioned and fitted with a PA system for the driver to talk to passengers.
Rates are based on start point, party size, destination and duration, and are quoted upon request.
We have 30 years experience and can give additional
Wheelchair Travel has had many customers over the years and can provide numerous testimonials from those who have been happy with our service. Vehicle can be delivered to any place in the UK at an additional charge.
We can direct clients to hotels or agents and can advise on accessible visitors attractions, distances between places and we try to answer the multitude of other questions that we get asked.
We can also advise on the UK rental of scooters and powered wheelchairs, and we ourselves can supply heavy-duty voltage converters/adaptors, cell-phones and portable GPS systems.
Wheelchair Travel vehicles can be taken to mainland Europe on the ‘Le Shuttle’ train or ferry across the 21 miles stretch of water called the English Channel. This must be booked in advance as we have to secure the necessary extra documentation, insurance, breakdown assistance and equipment needed.
We trust the foregoing has encouraged special needs travellers that visiting the UK
with a wheelchair or scooter is not such a daunting prospect and we look forward
to serving you in 2012 and beyond.
