Can't book taxi

Well, I just called and attempted to arrange for a taxi from Aqua Cars to take us from Heathrow to Portsmouth and was told that I would have to come into their office or send someone into their office with advance payment. They wouldn't take a credit card over the phone and we know no one that could handle this for us because we're tourist. Is there another Portsmouth taxi that would accept my credit card.

They appear to have an internet booking form

www.aquacars.co.uk/fusebox.php…

which makes no sense as to why they insist you come into their office?

Their web site also says

"Credit card payments are accepted, by phone ..."

www.aquacars.co.uk/technology_creditcard.html

Why not try booking on the web, and see what happens.

Thanks so much we got it worked out. Went to the booking page, sent an email, got a message back, made a phone call and we're all set. A little round about way but we got it done. Thanks again.
