London Heathrow Airport Taxi Transfers

London Airport is the biggest airport in the United Kingdom. It has 5 terminals. In 2010 terminal 2 was closed due to a major upgrade. In front of the terminals there are taxi ranks with hackney registered london taxis also known as “black cabs”. In fact, not all of them are black- there are some with adverts painted on them and some are just painted cream-white or red.

There are coaches and public transport buses operating from the terminals, but using a london heathrow airport taxi transfers- prebooked in advance seems to be the most economic choice for many, especially when there are 3 or more of you.

There are numerous taxi websites and taxi companies specializing in transfers to and from London Heathrow airport.  Some are illegal some are not. How to distinguish between an illegal taxi or a minicabs company offering taxi rides or shuttle service to or from Heathrow?

The short answer is to use your common sense and to check the credibility of the company. If the private hire or a taxi operator does not include address details on the website and only 0800 number there is a great chance it is a cowboy who might be cheaper, but might also not show up at all, or show up in an untested and unsafe vehicle.

Many London Heathrow Airport Taxi Transfer operators if licensed will say it loud on the website, perhaps in the footer or in the about, or contact page. You should not be scared to ask if the company is licensed or not.

Heathrow is located to the west of London Centre and it is relatively easy to get there by tube, but when it comes to get from Heathrow to Gatwick, taxi transfer seems to be the quickest option. Often it works out even cheaper then the coach (eg. with 4 passengers travelling together)
