What is Private Hire?
Hire is a passenger transport service where the vehicle MUST be booked
prior to travelling with a licensed operator. A private hire vehicle
and driver is not allowed to stop and collect a passenger by being hailed.
A Private Hire company must conform to a strict code of conduct and
is licensed in three ways:
Operator of the company must be licensed. This involves a police disclosure
check and proof of identification to the local regulating authority.
The licence must be renewed every 12 months and must be issued before
bookings can be taken.

iii) Every Private Hire vehicle must be licensed. A vehicle used for
Private Hire must be presented for inspection every six months before
a Council test station. This test is similar to an MOT but is more thorough

standards required it must carry identification plates with a unique
licence number specific to that vehicle.

We do not charge you if your flight is delayed. We constantly monitor

vehicles. We also have vehicles "floating" should your new

arriving at. Your driver will be there waiting for you. Your driver
will be easily identified by the Bluestone Cars meeting board and your
name that they will be carrying. You will also receive a picture of
your driver before you travel with us. If for some reason you should
miss your driver you can call them directly on their mobile phone. Alternatively
please proceed to the airport information desk and request a call for
your driver over the loud speaker.
Can we squeeze 5 people in one car?
car's are licensed to carry four passengers only - exceeding this limit
is illegal and dangerous. We have a Chrysler Grand Voyager for up to
six passengers. If there are more passengers, please book extra vehicles.
I'm not sure about your booking procedure - I don't trust computers!
Cars will only complete a booking when we know we have availability
of a vehicle for your desired journey. We will also contact you by e-mail
to arrange a collection point and any other requirements you may have
- this also allows you to tell us of any other preferences you have.
