Taxi2Flight offers convenient, comfortable, reliable and cost effective airport, railway and docks transfer services from the Bath, Frome (north east Somerset) and Trowbridge, Westbury and Warminster (West Wiltshire) areas.
Taxi2Flight services are operated and offered as dedicated section of Celtic Horizons, a long established Frome-based private hire operator.
Wherever possible all Taxi2Flight services are operated by Celtic Horizons vehicles although at times we may need to sub-contract your journey to a reputable alternative supplier. The vehicle supplied for your journey will be suitable to carry up-to the maximum number of occupants shown on the booking form plus one standard sized suitcase per person. Should you know in advance that you are likely to carry extra or large suitcases/luggage please let us know in advance so that we may avoid any potential problems.
You may also wish to read our frequently asked questions.
Is the price shown per person or per vehicle?
The price shown is the total cost for the vehicle, not the price per person, and includes all reasonably expected costs in undertaking your journey (ie, includes parking, fuel).
Can I book by telephone
We'll be happy to take your reservation by phone: call us on 01225 541000 between 9am and 7pm, UK time.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
For journeys which do not start in Bath, Frome, Trowbridge, Warminster or Westbury (ie, all journeys which start at an airport or dock) we do request a deposit payment of £25: this is done to ensure that we are notified of cancellations or amendments for collection points that we have to travel outside of our immediate area to undertake.
Do I have to share my transfer with anyone else?
No: when you make a reservation your transfer vehicle will only be for your party size as detailed on your booking form. We do not offer 'shared/shuttle' transfers therefore you will not be sharing the vehicle with strangers and your journey will be direct to your own destination.
I need to make multiple pick-ups or drop-offs en route
Please note that our prices are based on a direct journey only and include only one designated pick-up point and one designated drop-off point: should you need to make multiple stops during your journey please contact us first for assistance as this may incur extra milage/driving time and therefore increase the fare.
My inbound flight/arrival to the UK is delayed - what do I have to do?
We will watch your flight arrival status and aim to reach the airport for when it is due to land. We do appreciate SMS contact wherever possible with updates if possible. Should you flight be cancelled or if you are placed onto a flight with a different flight code please let us know immediately so that we may meet that flight instead. You should note that once your flight has landed you have upto 60 minutes to pass through baggage reclaim/passport control (this is the average time to pass through Heathrow Airport): excessive delays over this time may be charged (£25 per 60 minutes to cover wages, parking fees, etc).
Where do I meet the driver at the airport?
The pick-up point and procedure will be confirmed in your confirmation email. If you have chosen our 'Meet & Greet' service the driver will be waiting for you in the arrivals hall.
Who is operating my transfer?
Wherever possible all Taxi2Flight services are operated by Celtic Horizons vehicles although at times we may need to sub-contract your journey to a reputable alternative supplier. An emergency assistance telephone number will be included in your booking confirmation should you need to contact us out of hours.
I need to cancel my booking

Journeys cancelled 12 to 72 hours in advance are subject to a 50% fare cancellation charge.

Do I need to tip the driver?

Can I smoke in the vehicle?
In compliance with UK law, smoking is not permitted in our vehicles.
All bookings are subject to our standard terms and conditions.
The following terms & conditions apply to confirmed Taxi2Flight and Celtic Horizon bookings.
Confirmation of Booking
No booking should be assumed as confirmed until a full booking confirmation is received by the client. In the unlikely event that we are unable to complete a provisional online booking request you will be notified by email/telephone and a refund of any payment processed made.

We cannot predict the costs of parking at places visited en route ‐ therefore it is up to the hirer to pay the parking charges on the day, the driver will produce a ticket as evidence of parking costs.

It is strictly forbidden to load luggage in the aisle area or upon passenger seats in a car for obvious safety reasons. If we feel it is necessary to arrange for a larger vehicle to carry luggage in excess of notification this will be charged accordingly. Please note this does not necessarily equate with the number of persons carried.
