EAC Airport Meet & Greet policy

  • All inbound flights are tracked and monitored both on – line and with the airports automated flight information system to ensure a driver is always on time.

  • For any collections from private airfields or for private flights into commercial airports a free waiting period of 15minutes shall be given after the scheduled arrival time. This is because we are unable to track private aircraft/flights and once landed they are not subject to the standard procedures/delays that commercial and scheduled flights are subject to”

  • There may be some occasions such as extremely heavy traffic congestion or if a flight has landed particularly early where a client may have to wait for a driver.

  • EAC will always keep in contact with the client to ensure that they are aware of the situation.

  • We advise that all clients provide a contact mobile number at the time of booking and switch their phone on as soon as possible once landed.

  • If there are any adverse conditions which will mean the driver will be delayed we would have already left a message on the clients mobile phone to inform of the fact. We will then stay in constant contact until the client has been met.

  • Without exception all clients/passengers will be met inside the terminals at our designated meeting points wherever advised – this does not levy any additional costs apart from those listed in general.

  • Heathrow and Gatwick dictates that the areas outside of their terminals are for drop off only–meeting and collecting passengers outside any of these terminals carries with it substantial fines for the driver and potential revocation of any operator’s licence.Every EAC driver will assist a client with luggage but it is ultimately the clients’ responsibility to ensure that all items of luggage, camera/video equipment, handbags and any other items are in the vehicle. No responsibility will be taken by EAC for luggage left in the airport terminal or car parking area.

For International and European arrivals at Heathrow and Gatwick airports the following meeting points apply:

These locations have been selected due to their close proximity to both the arrivals area, the entry and exit points

to the terminals and also the fact that even at peak time’s congestion is at a minimum.

These locations provide our arriving guests a seamless and stress free meet

and greet procedure

EAC General Car Bookings

  • Although to a certain extent we are able to offer an “on-demand” service we would recommend that in order to maintain reliability, guarantee provision and to eliminate waiting times all journeys are pre-booked wherever possible.

  • For bookings where there is no general card or account facility open no job will be undertaken without a valid credit or debit card number being lodged with the offices of EAC prior to travel. By doing so you authorise us to debit your card for any additional charges, including cancellation and/or no shows without prior notice.

  • Executive, VIP and MPV (up to 7 passengers).

  • Via our specific long term industry relationships we are also able to offer mini bus and coach facilities.

  • EAC will always work with our clients in making recommendations in relation to vehicle sizes which we feel would be the most cost efficient and comfortable depending on passenger numbers and amount of luggage.

Child Seats

Due to legislative changes which took effect from 1st April 2017 we are now able to provide a child seat for those that require it.

This child seat is a brand new High Back Booster 15-36kgs and fully compliant to current ECE.R44/04 legislation.

If you require this then please make this clear at the point of booking. However, if you are providing your own then we are more than happy to retain this for your return journey if you so wish, but again please make this clear at the point of booking.

Using either provision it is still your sole responsibility to ensure that your child is seated securely and correctly*

*Our drivers have been fully briefed on the usage of this seat however, EAC cannot be held responsible for any injury/injuries sustained due to a child being incorrectly secured into this seat or any seat supplied by the individual/s travelling with that child.

It is the sole reasonability of the guardian/parent/s to ensure that not only are they happy with the placement of the child seat either supplied by themselves or EAC but that the child is secured safely and within the guidelines.

  • Where a client has failed to show for an airport collection the waiting time will be calculated from the confirmed time that the driver entered the terminal (within reason) until it was established that the passenger was a “no show”

  • For any significant events or where a large amount of resource is booked then a 24hr notice period is required. Less than this and full charges are made in line with these terms.
