Imperial Car Reviews

We were so glad to have Imperial Cars to transport us to and from planes and ships in London. We are from the States and had no knowledge of the city and so were at a disadvantage. We couldn't have had a better trip and thanks to Anthony our driver we made our destinations with time to spare. Imperial Cars is a great company and is serious about there business. They take care of people. Highly recommended!!! We would use Imperial Cars again without hesitation. Cheers!!

Anthony at Imperial went beyond the service expected to ensure I was not stranded at Gatwick airport on Sunday. At very late notice he informed me that he would be there to collect me after a delayed flight and drive me back to Southampton. As always the service was impeccable, although I had disturbed his quiet evening Anthony went the extra mile to ensure I had the best service he could provide. Highly recommend this fantastic service. Thank you very much. See you soon.

We have used Imperial Cars half a dozal times before, for trips to Sothampton from London and back, and have always been impressed by the outstanding promptness, courtesy, comfort of their service. This last time, 2 weeks ago, we got to meet Anthony the proprietor, who was superlative in all respects. We will definitely ask for him again on our next trip! Outstanding!

Just a quick note to say how pleased we were with Imperial Cars. We called them to provide an additional car for our daughters wedding. Their service was great from the first telephone call. The driver was very friendly and polite. He was happy to wait until everyone was ready and helped where needed. Top notch.

Anthony was the epitome of good and efficient service. On time, and very helpful with the loading and unloading of our luggage. Very polite and friendly.A very nice, smooth and comfortable car taking the best and quickest route. Have already recommended Imperial to two other friends for future journeys, and will not hesitate to use them again ourselves. Another well deserved 5 stars.

Aran (Genting Club)

It was very easy to arrange the car which we did a month in advance and we were emailed a confirmation with time a few days prior to collection. On the day we were delayed but that presented no problems and we were meet and looked after extremely well. The car was immaculate, Alex our driver was very smartly dressed and drove extremely well. Many thanks and we recommend your service without question.

Stuart Beitler

We were very impressed with the service provided by Imperial Cars to and from Heathrow. The cars were very comfortable and the provision of bottles of mineral water was a nice touch. All the problems of getting to Heathrow and parking and then finding an airport terminal bus were removed and at a very reasonable cost. We will certainly use Imperial Cars again and would recommend the company.

We used Imperial Cars last week to take us for lunch in the New Forest to celebrate a birthday / anniversary. I cannot fault the service we received - everything was impeccable and we will definitely use them again. Thank you.

Laura Wilson

All 4 drivers we used were protect, friendly and courteous. I recommend them highly.

My wife and I live on Vancouver Island , Canada and last used Imperial Cars Services when doing a Cruise around the British Isles in 2005. At that time we had the pleasure of Mr Anthony Giffard coming to London to transport us to Southampton, to the cruise port and back to Heathrow. This time (July 2015) now retired, we booked the Cunard QM2 175th Anniversary voyage from Southampton via Liverpool to Halifax, Boston and new York. I emailed Anthony and was quickly offered the same wonderful services of his staff to pickup us at Heathrow , to Southampton and a few days later to City Cruise terminal. In all cases his staff are professional, polite, eager to ensure you are relaxed as they look after the driving and your luggage to the door. We will return and of course use Imperial Car Services Sure beats using a bus, taxi and train when having luggage for a cruise . Did I mention their rates are great Hope to write the next review in a year or so :) Thank you all

As the name imperial suggests, Anthony provided a top class service! My parents had the pleasure of using Imperial Cars for their journey from Southampton to Holyhead. They raved about the beautiful car and engaging company of Anthony. Little touches like bottles of water were greatly appreciated after getting off the Queen Mary 2. He was very obliging and went the extra mile. Anthony didn't just leave them to the agreed destination, he helped my father at Irish Ferries to ensure the next part of their journey went as smoothly as the car journey. Use the excellent and brilliant Imperial Cars. You won't regret it.

Used a Mercedes van for a day with Imperial. The booking process with Anthony was smooth and the day itself ran to perfection. Paul, the driver, looked after the 4 of us very well and made sure we got to where we were going on time, and in comfort. In fact, his involvement added to the whole day. I couldn't recommend the service highly enough !


auto was spotless and comfortable driver Anthony was on time and most pleasant taking us from Heathrow to ship and then returning to take us back from our ship to airport SEAMLESS all the way!

I would like to thank Imperial Cars for providing all transportation for our company during the recent Farnborough Air Show. Anthony Gifford had his drivers well organized to transport 18 of our Senior Leadership Team to and from London and Farnborough and other destinations as required. Any late change to schedules was met with professionalism. A job well done - thank you!

Lynda Reed

Thank you Imperial cars for my daughters prom. Your service was firt class. Punctual, friendly and professional. Would recommend to anyone. 5 stars.


Hi Tony! Please forgive the delay in thanking you and Stuart for another wonderful time. We truly appreciate all of your efforts to make our trips memorable. Can't wait till next year! We highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a top rate limo service! Your company is without a doubt the finest in Southampton!

The Stogners

Excellent service and immaculate cars, great for any occasion. The stocked fridge with G&T's is always a welcome touch. Best local Chauffeur service in the area.

Robert Crosthwaite Eyre

I booked Imperial to transport myself and my girlfriend to a restaurant in the New Forest. We both thought the service was impeccable. We were met by the very smart driver who had an umbrella on hand due to the rain that night. The car was highly polished and fantastic, complete with drinking water. Very friendly driver who waited for us all evening until we were ready to come home. I would without doubt use Imperial again and highly recommend to others.

Rob Hampson

Anthony Giffard is a wonderful driver and guide. Mr. Giffard picked my wife, our daughter and me up after our recent cruise and drove us back to London. Along the way we made several sightseeing stops - a couple that we had researched prior to the trip and a couple that Mr. Giffard suggested once we had a chance to talk about our interests. The result was a relaxing, interesting and safe journey made even better by Mr. Giffard's knowledge and keen eye towards satisfying his customers. We have recommended Mr. Giffard and Imperial Cars to our friends and will definitely book with them again.

Howard Marcus

Imperial Cars are excellent! Will definitely be using again and again!


We have used Imperial cars for both business and family transfers. They are always prompt, helpful and extremely professional. We would highly recommend Anthony and his team and look forward to the continuous high level of service.

Professional Service - I have used Imperial Cars for all our executive airport transfers and social transfers and have always found them to be very reliable, knowledgeable and professional, and would definitely recommend them.

Paula C

Fantastic Company and Service! - Myself and my family have been using Imperial Cars for a good few years now for Airport transfers, Work, Weddings/Functions and personal use! We have always found them reliable, prompt and very professional! The drivers are of great quality and provide an excellent service to us! We have never been disappointed with Imperial Cars even with our last minute requests! Highly recommended!!

Mrs R Hazell

Excellent Transfer Service 25/06/2008 I am a travel agent and booked this transfer on behalf of my clients. It is the first time I have used the business, but I will definitely be using them again. The service was brilliant, and Anthony was particularly helpful. Once the clients had travelled we were sent the relevant paperwork which can quite often be forgotten, so it is nice to see a company who is well organised!

Charley G

THANK YOU for the exceptional service we received from your organisation and your drivers! My husband and I secured your services in August to transport us from our London hotel to our cruise ship and return us to London at the end of our cruise. Both trips were relaxing and our drivers knowledgeable, friendly and humorous. We were actually a little disappointed having to say goodbye to them when we reached our destinations! Thank you again! I would recommend your organisation in a heartbeat.

Sharmin & Rob Hislop. Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Hi Anthony. I would just like to thank you very much for the superb job all your drivers did for our wedding on the 28th December 08. They were all fantastic and the cars were excellent and both added to the day. Thank you very very much, and any requirement for cars in future I will certainly come to you and will be recommending you to all my friends and work associates.
