How to Travel to Gatwick Airport Quickly and Cheaplyby William Morris londonairportcars
Flying into London has for years been an
expensive, time-consuming and unpleasant affair, and those who must fly in and
out of London regularly on business have always hated the hassle.
The problem with London airports has
always been the fact that they are so inconveniently located. London Gatwick,
the second largest airport in the London area after Heathrow, isn't really in
or even near the City of London. The airport is actually in West Sussex, a full
28.4 miles south of central London. Getting to and from the airport can be a
nightmare, and it's a journey nobody enjoys or looks forward to. What's more,
with the high cost of taxis in the UK the cost of transport between London and
Gatwick is rarely less than £40, adding a huge cost to the total cost of travel
(an £80 round trip will hurt anyone's pocket).
Fortunately, there is an answer.
Travellers to Gatwick Airport can now enjoy the speed, convenience and low cost
of the Gatwick Express shuttle service between the airport and central London.
The service, run by the rail company South West Trains, runs every 15 minutes
from London Victoria to Gatwick, and the total journey time is just 30 minutes.
The Gatwick Express has everything to
recommend it. The total cost of an adult return ticket is just £33.20 (as of
January 2012), and discounted even further if your ticket is booked online.
Compared to the average £80 round trip by Gatwick
Airport Cab this offers a considerable saving. Furthermore, as the
service runs every 15 minutes throughout the day there's no real inconvenience
involved, which would be the only argument for choosing a Gatwick
Finally, the largest benefit of the
Gatwick Express is the journey time. At 30 minutes, the Gatwick Express is much
faster than a taxi over the same distance. The time taken to simply get out of
central London and onto the M25 would take longer than the total journey time
of the express train.
So, if your travel plans include Gatwick
Airport any time in the future it makes sense to reject the taxi in favor of
the Gatwick Express train service. The Express offers comfort, convenience,
speed, safety and savings over the Gatwick
Airport taxi, so there are really no reasons to choose any other mode
p.s. Here's a bonus hint. While the
regular Gatwick Express runs non-stop between London and Gatwick, if you're on
a tight budget you can make the same journey by a Southern Trains local service
for less than half the price and the only downside is that the total journey
time is 8 minutes longer.
Hiring a London airport taxi is
the most convenient and safe option when it comes to travelling from Gatwick
(LGW) airport to
your hotel in the city Centre. Britannia Airport Cars are
available 24/7 and are known for providing excellent services.
