Customer Reviews


Would definitely use Saphire Trio meet and greet again. The only negative is the car park where you drop the car if isn't very well signposted. Overall a great service.

Thanks for making our car parking quick, easy and hassle-free!

Arrived to park 40 minutes early - no problem! Got a call within 30 seconds of landing - 'We noticed you have landed, would you like us to bring your car round now?' Ready and waiting and immaculately clean to greet us as we left the terminal! This was the best parking ever, we haven't used London City Airport before, but your parking service is brilliant. I'd give a special mention of the chauffeur - he was really great, but although he introduced himself I don't recall his name. Thanks very much.
