“To Jenny and team, thank-you so much for being on time, even though our plane was late into Gatwick. Your driver kindly stopped for us to have a break before travel, even though he’d already waited 3 hours for us. I can’t thank-you enough!”
Mr M.A, Exeter

Just a short note to thank you for the excellent service provided on Saturday las, even the problems you had with the second vehicle did not cause us any problems. We found all the drivers friendly & professional and will have no hesitation  in recommending yourselves and indeed will be using you again.

Mr M. Newton Abbot- Dawlish Jan 2019

Excellent Service would not hesitate to use you again, or recommend you to others.

Chudleigh- Bristol Airport and return, May 2019

I wanted to say how very impressed I was with the transfer to Southampton that you did for me over the  New Year. I so much appreciated the service, both your efficiency and  professionalism, and your kindness and flexibility over timing due to my being a bit under the weather at one point.  I would certainly, if I may, use you again  It does make such a difference being pic ked up and taken door to door.  I’d never travelled by long distance taxi before didn’t quite know what to expect, but found it a very good experience.

Mrs C. Starcross, Jan 2019

We had an excellent service from Derek for our recent trip to Australia . He was not only an excellent driver but was extremely courteous and helpful with the luggage.  His insider knowledge of where to park at Heathrow was most useful and we were home in three hours.

Mr E. Combeinteignhead- LHR, April 2019

 Grafton Travel was represented by a very high quality driver. She was polite and punctual. Cant fault the service. Highly recommended 

Torquay to Exeter Airport, Aug 2019

Booked this for my mother who was travelling home to USA.  She said it was a very positive experience.

Broadhampston to Gatwick, Jan 2019

Good, reliable service, lovely driver made my trip smooth and comfortable. Used for Bristol Airport last year with friends and I have recommended to others

Exeter- Plymouth, Jan 2019

Just wanted to say thank you for your excellent service on our recent trip - Newton Abbot to Heathrow on the  22 March and return from Southampton on 14th April.  Efficient and comfortable thanks to Derek who looked after us so well. We would certainly recommend you and would use you again.

Newton Abbot, April 2019

I’m pleased to send you feedback following the trip to Gatwick & back on Jan 1st. In short, I was satisfied in every respect and felt that the cost was fully justified. Derek arrived a few minutes before his estimated time of arrival. My son and two grandchildren were exhausted by their long journey from Brisbane and slept the whole journey back to Topsham; we all had a very comfortable and safe ride as we dozed. I wouldn’t hesitate to do the same again in similar circumstances or to recommend your firm to others… and I feel especially grateful to Derek. I hope this is helpful. I will certainly be in touch again if I need to do an airport trip!

“We recently used Grafton Travel for transport from Torquay to Gatwick airport. Our driver was Derek. Service was prompt and professional. The car was spotlessly clean and the banter was brilliant. What a way to start our holiday. On our return Derek was waiting and assisted us in carrying our luggage. We would highly recommend Grafton Travel to anyone who wants a trouble free, professional and reliable service at a reasonable cost.”

Fabulous new car- so comfy for four adults and loads of luggage space- no need to be squashed on way to our cruise!

Teignmouth- Southampton Docks, May 2019

Very prompt and efficient service at highly competitive rates. Effective communication maintained, I shall not hesitate to place more business your way as and when the need arises

Nor will I hesitate to recommend your company to others. I felt that during the process from initial enquires to placing the booking that I was valued as a customer.

Regards, Terry

Southampton cruise transfers went smoothly. Both journeys went efficiently and driver gave exceptional service and we have booked them again.
