No more included limo with Upper Class ‘I’ fares from Jan 24th:

We need to let you know about some changes we’re making to our Upper Class ground transportation offering.

From 24 January 2018 we’ll be making the following changes:

We will no longer offer complimentary ground transportation, including chauffeur cars, as part of an I class ticket. This includes Heathrow Express, Limo Bike and all other options, including those in our overseas markets.

Customers booked in I class who would like a chauffeur car transfer will instead have the option of booking one at a preferential Virgin Atlantic rate from our partner Addison Lee.

We are also extending the ability to add on a chauffeur car, at the Virgin Atlantic preferential rate, to Z class bookings globally.

Our affiliation to VS wears ever thinner.

We have a substantial tranche of miles to use up but, continue to chip away at the UC offering and we'll fly with other carriers.

Frankly I’m amazed the CDCs are still offered at all. No other TATL carrier offers them - not even BA in F.

If VS was serious about competing with the ME3 to Asia then yes, there’s a point in having them. But it’s essentially now a TATL carrier and apart from being a ‘nice-to-have’ perk I can’t believe they’re that important commercially.

However they’ll still be available for the pax they’re aimed at - the business travellers on flexible, company-bought tickets.

Not a silly question at all!! My fault sorry as I should have included the extra bit below.

No, it doesn't apply to existing bookings or new bookings made between now and Jan 23rd:

Customers booking an I class ticket on or before Tuesday 23 January 2018 will still have the option of a complimentary chauffeur car. Any I class bookings made on or after Wednesday 24 January will have the option to pay separately for a chauffeur car.

As a rough rule of thumb, I work on the basis of £100 per hour. so if you are within half and hour of an airport expect to pay around £50 plus any tolls or entry fees.

The best way is to go to Tristar and see how it compares to local cab firms. I always use Tristar as they turn up on time, the car is clean and the driver professional
