There are five airports in London, Heathrow, which is the busiest airport in Europe and the largest in the UK, Luton Airport, Stansted, Gatwick and London City Airport. While the latter is very close to the city, other airports are at a considerable distance from central London. Gatwick Airport, for instance, is almost 30 miles away and Stansted Airport is even farther, at a distance of approximately 40 miles. To that extent, when you travel to London, not matter where you land, you need to handle your transportation from the airport to the city, in which case you have two main options: public transportation or private transfer, such as booking a Gatwick airport taxi. Many people go with the public transportation, thinking that hiring a Luton, Heathrow or Stansted airport taxi will be too expensive, but that is not entirely true. There are many reasons for which you should seriously consider getting a car service from the airport to the city and here are the main three. |
First of all, whether you choose a Gatwick airport taxi or a car service from Heathrow Airport to Central London, you can be sure that no matter what happens, your transportation is handled. Your plane may be delayed, your luggage lost or your flight even cancelled, but when you arrive in London, no matter when, the driver will be waiting for you. If you choose public transportation, you can kiss those train or bus tickets goodbye. Another reason is, obviously, convenience, especially if you travel with extra luggage. Carrying around heavy bags, in and out of the bus, in and out of the train or underground can be really daunting, not to mention that you can actually throw a muscle there. Obviously, when you hire a Stansted airport taxi or a car service for any other airport for that matter, you benefit from great comfort, having a driver wait for you at baggage claim, usually, and driving to London and even around London until you reach your destination from the comfort of the back seat.
Last, but not least, a Gatwick airport taxi may be as affordable, if not even cheaper, than public transportation. If you travel alone that may not be the case, but if you travel with your family or in a group, the cost of 3 or 4 train or bus tickets may very well exceed the cost of a car service. The bottom line is that, if you research the matter thoroughly, you will see that hiring a Stansted airport taxi service has numerous benefits and there are plenty of reasons to do so, being a much more convenient, affordable and smooth process than you traveling by public transportation. London is a wonderful city and a great destination and there is no point in starting your visit on the wrong foot by losing the bus or the train, carrying your heavy luggage around or having to stand up for hours in a crowded, congested bus. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
