Taxi to and from Heathrow

Taxi to and from Heathrow

I am traveling to London next month and I need help with a shuttle service from my hotel to Heathrow. I plan to use the tube to get to my hotel, but my departure is too early to use the express or tube. Are there any suggestions on a shuttle service?

Try a car service; you should be able to travel from central London to LHR for about £25 - 29 depending on the service with which you book.

Tried and tested companies include www.handicars.co.uk www.simplyairports.co.uk www.justairports.com www.london-transfers.com and www.exclusiveairports.co.uk It's not unusual for credit card payments to attract a small surcharge, so a cash payment will save you a few pounds.

I've used Just and Simply and have been satisfied with both.

Ive booked Dot2 Dot a door to door shuttle service for friends and guests and they have been very satisfied. They do early pick ups.

It costs about £21.50 for a pickup from most London areas to Heathrow. They also go to Gatwick.


If there are 2 or more of you it might be cheaper to book a local minicab company.

If you're on a budget then depending where you are staying (and probably which terminal you're flying from) there is a night bus that goes to Heathrow too.

A black taxi to the airport that you waved down in the street would cost you about £50 to £60. Put your time of departure and addresses into this website calculator to get a more accurate estimate


As was said above the "N9" bus runs through the night and early mornings and costs £2 per passenger. They do have luggage space. But they would take about 80 minutes plus the time waiting for one to arrive.

Dot2dot is getting more and more complains. I always recommend Simply. They are cheap and efficient.
