We have all had the dilemma when the taxi has arrived without the correct car seat you definitely ordered. Only one thing for it – to take your own, which is a massive inconvenience – who wants to lug that across continents? Family Transfers is a company that specialises in making your trip as hassle free as possible.
THE OUTWARD JOURNEY
We were lucky enough to review this service, starting in Hampshire at 4am at the beginning of the Easter Holidays. With an early flight booked and a way to drive to Stanstead it was brilliant to have a car to pick us up – with all the correct sized car seats for our three kids aged 8, 6 and 4.
A comfortable 8 seater arrived quietly in our drive ahead of schedule and Jorge our quiet and helpful driver leapt up to take the suitcases as soon as we appeared. We spaced the children out, seat belts on, radio off, perfect temperature and within half an hour all of us were asleep.
As they drive you straight to the drop off point there was no tassel of finding our designated parking space for the week. Although I will hand it to Stanstead it is a well oiled machine and very organised, it is still quite far from the terminal to walk with kids – especially when it is so fresh first thing in the morning.
THE RETURN JOURNEY
On our return, Jorge had our flight details so met us off our slightly delayed flight.
He immediately took control and loaded the bags onto a trolley (and maybe one or two kids!)
It was very helpful to have an extra pair of hands when dealing with tired hyper kids. My kids seem to go potty in an airport! Jorge pushed the trolley all the way to the car that gave us extra hands to guide the kids.
He delivered us home safely without a hiccup and I can honestly say it was such a joy having the transfer both ends sorted. It is just another area to tick off your list when you are travelling that you don’t have to worry about.
Now for the next holiday….
