Hallo I am using 247 Airports Cars all the time but want to hear more suggestions to travel from any London airoprt to the heart of London. Mostly we travel from the LCY or Heathrow - we try to avoid Gatwick by car since that is pain in the *** - the rail ist here a good option but not with heavy luggage.
Good question! I was just going to call the hotel I will be staying at and see if they could arrange something. I didn't know of 24/7 Airport Taxi so I will look that up.
I agree about not wanting to deal with the rail if you have luggage. Also as it will be my first time in London, being so unfamiliar with the transportation system, trying to navigate to the hotel after a long haul flight is not something I want to tackle on my first day!
Thanks for the 24/7 Airport Taxi tip!
Being a frequent UK visitor for work and leisure, I suggest the follwing
Car services, Black cars like those used by UBER or LYFT in the USA are available:
Addison Lee (www.addisonlee.com)
app based: Hail-O (hailo the app name)
UK Taxi (www.uktaxi.com)
I suggest you price it and see who offers the best deal for your needs. Some of the companies off carbon offset purchases so you can go greener if you wish to pay for it
I also believe Uber may be in the UK now, but do check them as well.
good luck and safe travels
I would be interested in trying Uber in Europe. I have been happy with Uber in the States. We just used a good old fashioned London taxi to go to/from the airport (LHR) and were very happy with it. When I have had the hotels order me a taxi in Paris, I always get a nice black car service and it prices out to the same as a taxi. I have also used Super Shuttle's black car service in Paris. I believe it is also available in London. Again, same price as a taxi and was very happy with the service. I am still mostly a do-it-myself public transit girl, luggage and all (it keeps me in denial that I am getting old), but when traveling with Mum, taxi is the order of the day.
