Apex Cars is a private hire taxi company and works with its clients to provide the end-user with a safe and reliable transport method. If you require a receipt for your journey, which has been paid by cash or card you can obtain one from the driver.
Apex Cars will provide you with a quotation for your airport transfer or long distance on the information provided by you. Apex Cars reserve the right to amend the quotation if there is any material change to the original itinerary, the number of passengers, or the type of vehicle required. Please note any jobs that are not from, to or via Tunbridge wells will attract a surcharge, as Apex Cars need to send the driver out of town to cover that job. The quotation you may have on the online booking page may not contain a surcharge(for out of area pick up) and one of our office members will contact you to notify this if required.
You must allow sufficient time when booking your Taxi to allow for the check-in times required by your airline and for any delays caused by traffic conditions. Apex Cars shall not be responsible for any delay caused by your failure to allow enough time to reach your destination or if the passengers are not ready for collection at the booked time.
You must order a suitable car size for the number of passengers and luggage. Apex Cars cannot guarantee to carry excessive amounts of luggage. Please note that a child, no matter what age, counts as one passenger.
