TRIP is a lifesaver

I would like to say TRIP, to us, has been a life-saver. My husband's health has deteriorated and TRIP have been there to get him to surgery, hospitals (Honiton and Exeter), physio and, not only get him there, but help in and out of the house when needed, wheelchairs, deliver him to the right place for his appointment and then waiting, no matter how long he's been kept and then return home.Without them (we have no transport), I don't know how we would have managed. We've also never been late for appointments. Their drivers are all volunteers, giving up their own time for us. Their cars are clean and warm and comfortable. They themselves are polite and very caring. If you share a car to Exeter it costs only £13 and you get a refund, if you qualify. We had to use taxi services several times when TRIP was closed and our costs were £35 each way.Mr and Mrs KlimaFairfield Gardens Honiton
