Meet & Greet Chauffer/Taxi service from UK Airports
We strongly recommend your own car for getting around during your stay at The Grooms House, but you may prefer the added luxury of being driven here and collecting a hire car locally, once you’ve settled in. Our local chauffer/taxi service is with Avon Taxis (owner Nick Dimarco) someone we have used personally for many years for our holiday trips via Heathrow, Gatwick and Birmingham. Nick offers a 24x7 service and can collect up to 6 persons with luggage anywhere in the UK. He can also drop you off at the local car hire centres and/or take you onward to your next destination.
If you were hiring a car locally at say Cheltenham and wanted to pick it up on the way to us he would divert there for no extra charge. If you want to pick up a hire car elsewhere, or next day perhaps, Nick could collect you from The Grooms House as a separate journey.
Nick will meet you in the airport arrivals hall at the terminal holding a board with the name of your party.
Example charges for a one way collection or drop-off, including all tolls and parking at the airport for a party with luggage, to The Old Grooms House:
Heathrow Airport - £125
Gatwick Airport - £160
Birmingham Airport - £60
Central London (inc. Zone/toll charge) £160
We can arrange this for you, alternatively you can contact Nick directly.
Nick telephone numbers: Mobile + 44 (0)7834 460968 and Office +44 (0) 1386 421989
Car Hire Centres Near to The Old Rectory, Strensham
Hiring a car at your destination airport to get here is by far the simplest option, however after a long-haul flight you may prefer the alternative modes of transport and then hire a car once you get here. There are a few local car hire centres to choose from. Enterprise for example offer a choice of cars with drop-off at alternative locations in the UK. They also offfer a courtesy pick-up service from the local train stations. So if you are coming from London for example then Enterprise Worcester would pick up from Pershore or Worcester stations and their Cheltenham branch picks up from Cheltenham Station.
