Terms & Conditions

Dover Royal Taxis does not accept any responsibility in any way for missed flights for whatever reason i.e. traffic delays, accidents, breakdowns, severe weather conditions or any unforeseen circumstances.

We advise passengers to plan to arrive at the airport 2 and a half hours prior to flight departure to allow for possible unpredicted delays en route to or from the airport. Dover Royal Taxis will not take responsibility for any passengers missing their flight if two hours check in time was not allowed.

All passengers are advised to have adequate travel insurance prior to booking.

No responsibilities for costs are to be refunded to any passengers who do not wait for their driver and take alternative transport.

Dover Royal Taxis does not accept any responsibility in any way if the passenger/luggage requirements exceed the capacity of the vehicle booked. If you are unsure about the capacity of the vehicle booked please contact Dover Royal Taxis customer services team immediately.

The exact route of your journey is down to the driver's discretion on the day of travel, alternate routes may be requested but cannot be guaranteed. In some cases, where the mileage or duration significantly changes, alternate routes may incur additional charges, this is calculated on a case by case basis.

Please ensure you give us your arrival times and day in to the UK and not your departing information.

If your flight into the UK has any serious delays please inform us or the driver as soon as possible. This is the most efficient way of making sure we have the most up to date information as flight trackers and online sites have delays updating their information.

Dover Royal Taxis use their own transport wherever possible but do use third party companies where appropriate.
