Going to US to Miami then onto FLL for Allure B2B December.
Could fly from Inverness to Gatwick on either 29th or 30th Nov.
Then fly from Heathrow to Miami on 30th Nov.
Back from Miami on 18th Dec then Inverness from Gatwick on 19th Dec.
Cannot do Inverness to Heathrow...they dont fly to LHR from Inverness....could fly Aberdeen to Heathrow...though would have to take 2 hour train and then taxi to airport.
So....do I fly Inverness to LGW and then take National Express coach (or taxi-3 people) to LHR...4 hours between flights.
Or ...do I fly Inverness to LGW..take National Express to LHR and stay at hotel at LHR overnight.
I want to use Airmiles for my flights..and this I can do for INV-LGW but not for ABZ-LHR (no airmiles flights available for return journey on 19th Dec)
Trying to keep costs down. So if staying overnight near Heathrow I could use Priceline for hotel...or should I just do Travelodge (using taxi rather than Hoppa bus )
National Express return would cost £120 for 3 people from LGW-LHR so thats cheaper than flights would cost from ABZ-LHR (£130 per person)
