London 2012 has arrived, are you planning on escaping or staying for the games?

Well, the big event of this year has finally arrived, the London 2012 Olympics! And what excitement it is generating, particularly with the ringing of the bells to launch the London 2012 Festival. All the dedicated Olympic lanes are now open (these are a contractural requirement with the Olympic Committee) and after the initial confusion, traffic seems to be running more smoothly.

With the Olympics running over the traditional holiday period of August, there will be many of you who are departing the UK for holidays abroad. What is often a last minute consideration is your journey to and from the airport, or sea port if you are travelling by sea. There are, of course, a variety of options - public transport, coaches, taxis… then there’s a dedicated airport transfer service, and Heathrow Gatwick Transfers offers just this service for you.

Heathrow Gatwick Transfers provides a cost effective airport transfer service to Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and London City Airport, as well as a service to the sea ports, Southampton, Dover, Harwich and Portsmouth, starting from £49.00.

Heathrow is the UK’s largest airport, and is also the fourth busiest worldwide. Many travellers pass through Heathrow to catch a connecting flight to another airport, such as Gatwick, Stansted or even further afield in the UK. Specialising in airport taxi transfers and providing a reliable service that removes all the hassle from your journey, Heathrow Gatwick Transfers is definitely the most convenient and comfortable way to travel. All customers are welcomed by one of our professional, personal chauffeurs within the airport by the arrival gates at no extra cost. In addition, we offer a free waiting service so should your flight be delayed for any reason, we won’t compound the situation and make it worse, we will wait for you. Need a child or baby seat? That’s no problem, and we don’t charge for it either, and there are no extra charges for payment by credit card, unlike some companies. Our cars are well maintained, regularly serviced and can accommodate up to 8 passengers, including 5 pieces of hand luggage and 8 check-in luggage bags.

In order to make your airport transfer as smooth as possible, we offer some tips to help you:

  • As soon as you exit the plane, call Heathrow Gatwick Transfers and let us know. Your driver is then able to make sure he is at the arrivals gate ready for you.
  • If you are catching a connecting flight, advise passport control as they usually help fast-track passengers that are running on a tight schedule.
  • Collect any baggage as quickly as you can and then pass through HM Customs; our driver will meet you.
  • Confirm your connecting flight departure time at the destination airport.

It is recommended that you allow a minimum of 4 hours between connecting flights which allows for any potential airport or road traffic delays.
