Many of our clients are not able to deal with money matters and we are happy to invoice them directly or another member of the family. There is a small administration charge for this.

In order to book a trip you must telephone Dial a Trip on 01777 948384 and we will take down the details of your trip. The charge is 45p per mile and there is no booking fee. Notice of 48 working hours is required for bookings, excluding weekends. We require 24 hours notice if you wish to cancel a trip, failure to do so may incur a late cancellation charge in addition to the driver’s expenses.

We will endeavour to find a driver, we do not ring back only if we cannot get a driver, this happens rarely but it does happen.
