cab from Heathrow to London


Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me the approx. cost of a cab from Heathrow to Westminister area of London?

 

As above - a good 'budget' would be c. £70...

 

There are cheaper options though!

- Underground

- Heathrow Express, then underground

- Coach transfer & 'local' taxi

- A 'private-hire' firm may do you a deal!

 

But; the cheaper it is - the more hassle there is; so it depends on your time-frame, budget and 'peace-of-mind' :)

Two times, we have used a private car hire http://www.justairports.com to go to & from Heathrow to Victoria area of London. It took nearly a hour to get to the airport. They meet you at Heathrow with a sign. We paid about 34-36GBP, it is based on the area of London and the size of the car. To get a quote, put in the hotel's postal code, first 2 letter and a number (our hotel's was SW1). It is cheaper to use cash as they charge a service charge for a credit card.

 

There are cheaper ways of going, but after a long overnight flight, it is nice to be met.

 

Here are some others -

Pretty much spot on.

 

Yesterday morning I took a cab from Heathrow to Canary Wharf, and there was £90 on the meter. I now wish I'd had a look at what it said when we were going around Trafalgar Square!

An alternative view is that after a long overnight flight, it's nice not to have to go around searching for "your" driver amongst a hundred others, or to have to operate to the schedule that you've previously set with them; and to just go to the taxi rank and get into the next cab when you're ready.
