During 2020 a significant number of Airports across the UK increased their short stay parking charges and drop off fee. Previously Personal Class Travel absorbed these costs and did not pass them on to our clients. Unfortunately, due to the prices now being charged by the majority of airports, this is no longer possible for us to do, so we unfortunately have to pass these costs on. As the rates vary from Airport to Airport and to make the process of pricing any booking requests easier, we have decided to introduce fixed airport surcharges regardless of the airport and how much they charge

Airport Drop Off£4.50If Paid, no additional charges when dropped off at the airport. If not paid, any drop off charges charged by the airport will be payable in full
Airport Pick Up£20.00If Paid, Flight Tracked, and driver will arrive in designated pick area of the airport 30 minutes after the flight has landed. 1 hour waiting time included
Meet & Greet£30.00If Paid, flight tracked, and driver will arrive in the arrival’s hall 20 minutes after the flight has landed to meet you


If Neither an Airport Pick Up or Meet & Greet is booked, the flight will not be tracked, and the driver will arrive in the pick-up area of the airport at the booked time. 15 minutes waiting time included

Airport Drop Off fees have been calculated using the average drop off fee charged by 15 Airports across the UK

Airport Pick Up fees have been calculated using the average cost of parking for 1 hour in the short stay car park of 15 airports across the UK, plus 1 additional hour at a £10.00 per hour for manpower costs

Airport Pick Up fees have been calculated using the average cost of parking for 1 and half hour’s in the short stay car park of 15 airports across the UK, plus 1 and half additional hour at a £10.00 per hour for manpower costs

As the prices above are calculated across a national average, the amount being paid for any given booking, maybe higher or lower than the cost to carry out that booking.


Fuel Surcharge

To protect against substantial rises in Fuel prices, Personal Class Travel operate a Fuel Surcharge. If the retail price of fuel reaches of exceeds a predetermined price, the distance element of our rates will increase in line with the rise in fuel prices. For 2021, the predetermined price for the fuel surcharge to be activated is £1.33.

When the retail fuel price hits £1.33, the distance element of our rates will increase by 15%, and then an additional 1% for every 1% increase in the price of fuel. When fuel falls below £1.33, the fuel surcharge will be removed and the distance element of our rates will revert to the price stated above.


Driver Hire

£15.00 per hour

Driver Hire is charged at an hourly rate from the time the driver leaves the company base to the time they return to the company base, plus any costs incurred by the company. Where possible, the company will always attempt to utilise the cheapest method of transporting the driver from the company base to the start point of the hire, and from the end point of the hire back to the company base, but consideration will also be given to the time this would also take. Where the duration of time exceeds more than 15 minutes of an hour, the full hour will be chargeable. Where the company chooses to use a “pool driver” and “pool vehicle” to transport the hired driver the costs incurred shall be a base to base hourly rate for the “pool driver” plus mileage at the HMRC rate applicable at the time. Where the start and finish point of the hire are the same place, the costs incurred by the company shall be the mileage from the companies base to the start / finish point of the hire, and back to the companies base at the HMRC rate applicable at the time.
