Providing a Safe Experience

Your safety is our number one priority. We have a full-time Customer Relations Team with the latest Feedback Systems in place to make sure you stay protected every time you use us.

A full-time Customer Relations Team

We believe if you look after the customer the business will take care of itself. Our Customer Relations Team are at hand to make sure our customers only receive the best experience when travelling with us. Our Feedback System allows us to leave no stone unturned and our Customer Relations team are at hand to action any feedback (both good and bad).

We Screen every Driver

And if they don't pass our stringent background check they can't join us, it's as simple as that. Drivers must provide an Enhanced DBS Certificate which means they have gone through a thorough criminal records check and have passed. Anyone whose background check shows violent crimes, sexual offenses, or other criminal acts is not allowed to work for us.
