What is your waiting time policy for passenger vehicles?
Our standard waiting times are below.
For non-airport journeys, a grace period of five minutes is offered before waiting time is accrued. For ASAP bookings, your five minutes starts from the time the vehicle arrives. For pre-bookings, the time starts from the booked journey time. Once you’re into your 6th minute, we’ll charge you for additional waiting time. See our Terms and Conditions for additional charging details.
For airport journeys, a grace period of 15 minutes is offered for domestic flights and 30 minutes for international flights before waiting time is accrued. After this period, you will be liable to pay a waiting time fee from the 16th minute for domestic flights and from the 31st minute for international flights. For additional waiting time charges, see our Terms and Conditions.
What shall I do if my driver is late?
You can track your driver on our mobile app or from the link in the SMS message sent to you when your driver is on their way. If you haven’t received this message and want an update on your booking, you can call our At Your Service Centre on 0207 387 8888.
Where will my driver meet me at the airport?
Your driver will meet you at Arrivals with an Addison Lee or Tristar name board at all UK airports, except for Terminal 5 International at Heathrow. At Terminal 5, your driver will be waiting for you by the Meeting Point South which is signposted. You will receive exact instructions of the meeting point in your email confirmation when you make the booking. For International airports your driver will always meet you at arrivals unless otherwise stated. Some International airports do not allow meet and greet e.g. some US airports. We use your flight number to track your flight and ensure your driver is waiting for you when you land. We monitor delays and update the time we send your driver in accordingly.
