What to expect

Whether you’re travelling individually, with a partner or in a group, your ground transport needs will be covered by this shared port arrival transfer service. Avoid the hassle of any long port lines for cabs, or the confusion of using public transport, and get your time in London off to a stress-free start. Your transfer will be confirmed instantaneously and you will be provided with a travel voucher to present to the driver.

When your cruise ship docks at Southampton cruise port, meet your professional driver and board your air-conditioned minivan that aims to depart the cruise port at 8:30am. Then, relax and enjoy the journey, stopping first at Heathrow International Airport before continuing into central London.

When your minivan arrives at Heathrow International Airport at approximately 10:30am, enjoy a drop-off at any of the five terminals to catch your flight, or at select Heathrow hotels. At approximately 11.00am we will begin drop offs in Central London. Drop-off is available at select mainline stations for your onward journey, or at hotels in central London districts.  See the

Itinerary for a full list of locations for drop-offs.

If you’re flying from other London airports, such as Gatwick, Luton or Stansted, make use of a drop-off at London’s Victoria Rail or Coach Station, leaving your minivan here to connect with the frequent trains or airport buses to these airports (own expense).

When making a booking, you will need to advise your cruise details and your hotel or drop-off locations at Heathrow Airport or in central London.

Pickup Details

Nearly all cruises at Southampton arrive between 05:00am and 06:00am in the morning, with disembarkation starting around 07:00am. Your driver will meet you at the terminal building exit from 08:00am. Your driver will be holding a sign reading "International Friends", and will accompany you the car. We plan to leave Southampton by 08:30am. There are 4 cruise terminals at Southampton, all slightly different but you will have a typical walk of about 75 yards to the vehicle where the driver will load your luggage into the hold. In the unlikely event your ship is delayed into port, we will delay our departure time accordingly (applicable only to the Royal Caribbean, Oceania, NCL, Princess, Azamara, Cunard or Celebrity cruise ships). For all delayed ship arrivals we will aim to leave at the latest one hour after docking (earlier if possible).

We were met by a rep who told us to wait “here” - outside port terminal - until our car arrived. She forgot to tell the driver, who was waiting inside with the other 3 passengers! Took over a half hour for us to connect, 🤬🤬, thank goodness I’d turned my phone on to receive the call from HQ. ...

The driver was early. Upon getting into the vehicle he gave us a bottle of water. He was polite. He drove safely and brought us to our location without issue. Good job!

No driver when we got off the ship...Even after a phone call waited 45 mins. Driver seemed confused.

Our driver Paul Douglas was awesome and was waiting for us at the terminal when we arrrived, i did not see him right away but i asked another international friends and the pointed him out to us. We had a wonderful trip to London and then had at least a two hour tour of most of the big attractions...

The drive was at the arrivals area with a sign. Van was comfortable with ample room for luggage and passengers. Dropped us off right at the terminal in Heathrow. Nice driver. Would do this again!
