When you have provided us with the flight number at the time of the booking, we will be aware of this cancellation and therefore will cancel the booking. Should you need to make an alternative booking for a different date or time, you can do so via our website or mobile app or by telephone. It is the customer’s responsibility to let us know that their flight is cancelled and no longer require a vehicle. Please cancel your booking via the mobile app, on our website or via telephone.

When you provide us with your flight number at the time of booking, we will track the flight landing time and adjust your pickup time accordingly.

Providing your flight number at the time of booking allows us to monitor your flight and alter the collection time accordingly to ensure that we meet you when your flight arrives and avoid unnecessary waiting time charges. If you wish to add a delay time in addition to your grace period, this can be arranged at the time of booking.

Your driver will meet you at Arrivals with a Dash Cars name board at Heathrow & Gatwick Airports only. For London Stansted & London Luton Airports the driver will meet you in the drop off/pick up point which is signposted in the terminal.

We will ask for your flight number at the time of booking and will track flight arrival times. Where possible we will adjust your driver’s arrival at the airport accordingly to avoid unnecessary waiting times.

Drop off fees are applicable at all airports. When collecting from an airport your driver will be charged a parking fee when exiting the airport and as this charge cannot be predetermined, we apply this charge after the booking has been completed.

Within your booking quote, a grace period of 30 minutes is offered for all flights before waiting time is accrued. You can add a delay time to your booking if you feel that you need more time. After this period, you will be liable to pay a waiting time fee from the 31st minute

This can happen if your if your final fare is greater than the initial authorisation amount. For example, due to wait time or if your ride is on a meter and you were stuck in traffic. If a second authorisation hold for the final full amount is unsuccessful, your bill may be split into two receipts. If you have any queries about your payments, please use our contact form.

When you book your ride, we give you an estimated fare. Your actual fare is charged once you have completed your ride. The actual fare may differ from the estimated fare due to wait time and or extras which we try to accommodate within the pre-authorisation. Please check your card or bank statement again in the coming days to see the final amount charged. If you have any queries about your payments, please use our website contact form.

We pre-authorise your payment to ensure that customers have a valid payment method and sufficient funds available when requesting a ride. This helps us to ensure we can pay the Driver-partner for the service they provide. This is common practice on all ride-hailing apps.

A pre-authorisation is a temporary hold of funds on your bank account or card. This is used to ensure that the payment method is valid, and that there are sufficient funds available to pay for your ride. The pre-authorisation is not a charge, but a temporary hold, meaning that the funds held will be released after a short period of time. Please note, the hold of funds is with your bank or card provider, not Dash.

No, we do not accept PayPal.

Taxi services, are priced using a meter and are subject to West Suffolk Council pricing tariffs.

For airports and long distance journey's operate a fixed postcode to postcode pricing structure. This is based on a booking fee and a distance-based unit rate taken from our database.

Off-peak pricing is the cost of your journey in an off-peak period and applies to the following times: 
Monday - Sunday00:00 – 05:59  
UK Bank Holidays00:00 – 23:59

The actual charge for the fare will take place after you complete your trip (unless the trip takes place outside our operating area), we then at our discretion can take the payment upfront before a driver is allocated the job. If you change payment method during your trip, the 'pending' charge will still remain until released by your bank. We recommend contacting your bank if you have any questions.

As well as booking on account, you can pay using credit or debit card, ApplePay or Google Pay.
