Airport Meeting Points

Heathrow Airport Meeting Points

Please Note:

Even when pre-booking a car (which we would always recommend) we request that for all terminals, passengers call our office after they have passed passport control, collected any luggage and are making their way out of the Arrivals Hall.
Only then will we instruct the driver, who we will have waiting off-site, as close to the terminal building as possible, to make their way to the pick-up point within the Car Park or Express pickup.

Express pickup is available for business & regular traveller. Please call us for more detail.

The price of the car park will be added to the cost of the journey (currently £4.00 minimum for the first 30 minutes (as of 3/1/18)).

This is a policy which has been imposed upon us and we thank our customers for their understanding in this matter.

If you would like to discuss any element of this policy, please email: info@virginiawatercars.com

Gatwick Airport Meeting Points

Please Note:
From 1st December 2015, due to heightened restrictions at Gatwick, we are being forced to collect customers from inside the terminal building in either the Arrivals Hall or Departures Hall as we are no longer permitted to load passengers on the terminal forecourts. The cost for a driver to meet you inside the terminal with your name on a board, or pickup from the car park in addition to the taxi fare, is:

Waiting time, charged at £1.70 per 5 minutes (which equates to £20.40 per hour) plus the minimum Car Park fee charged at Gatwick Airport’s current rate.

These charges can be kept to a minimum by requesting that your driver meet you inside the terminal carpark a fixed amount of time (which we will add to your actual landing time, which we will monitor) after you have landed.

This is a policy which has been imposed upon us and we thank our customers for their understanding in this matter.

If you would like to discuss any element of this policy, please email: info@virginiawatercars.com
