Heathrow Taxi Services

If you have decided to take a taxi to Heathrow then you have made a good choice, it can take a lot of hassle out of your journey to the airport as you won’t have to worry about parking at the airport or returning a hire car. So long as you choose a reputable Heathrow taxi company to get you to the airport on time then you will have little to worry about.

Getting a taxi to and from Heathrow

Most taxi companies also offer a return journey from the airport to your house which can work out cheaper than booking a different one on your arrival back to the country. It also makes it much more convenient for you if you book a return journey as the taxi company will take your flight number and track your flight on the day of your return and watch for any delays so you can be sure they will be there waiting when you return. There are lots of different companies that specialise in airport runs which you can find here; never before has getting a taxi to Heathrow been simpler.

Located close to Slough and Staines, towns made famous by TV shows The Office and Ali G respectively, Heathrow is about 15 miles from the centre of London, linked to the capital by the M4 motorway. Taxi services are ubiquitous, ranging from your garden-variety black cab or saloon, to minibuses and executive vehicles. However, many transfer specialists will charge significantly more than in other areas of the UK.

It is worth pre booking your airport transfer in advance for both peace of mind and to get a set quote.

Estate cars and people carriers, which carry more bags or more people, cost a fair bit more than your standard taxi. Executive cars are more expensive and seat a maximum of four people, albeit a little snugly, in the back. Be sure to book your taxi at least 24 hours in advance, as all prices are agreed before departure.

London is a huge city, and the price of a taxi journey from one postcode district to another may vary significantly. Individual taxi ranks may offer a discount (or charge a premium) based on any number of factors, so a little research is advised. Online booking is an ideal way to ensure that you don’t end up stranded outside a terminal in the freezing rain.

Premium Heathrow Taxi Services

London’s transfer specialists offer a wide range of packages for the discerning traveller. Executive or elite services, providing fancy cars for big-spenders, showcase some of the most desirable vehicles on earth – Ferraris, Mercedes, Lamborghinis, Porsche, etc. – all chauffeur-driven to your requirements. Drivers come well groomed and will provide a meet and greet service.

Premium services also provide little perks – newspapers and bottled water, in-car entertainment, and document printing services – but these are by no means guaranteed and may be specific to a particular taxi firm.

Credit card payments are permissible with online booking, and corporate customers may want to take advantage of the account options, removing the need to fill out endless forms and helping reduce taxi fares, especially for frequent flyers. All London transfer companies provide a 24-hour service with fixed prices.

Heathrow airport taxis include luxury vehicles such as Mercedes and BMWs

Heathrow taxi ranks

Taxi ranks at Heathrow are located outside of every terminal building and are occupied by London’s famous black cabs. You needn’t worry about the credibility of the drivers at these taxi ranks as they are all fully licensed and have passed the Knowledge of London exam. Please take into consideration that in peak times there may be limited taxi’s or no taxi’s at all at the rank, we therefore recommend you use one of the companies at the top of this page and prebook to save money!

  • Terminal 2 – Ground floor outside of the arrivals hall, opposite bus stop 12.
  • Terminal 3 – Adjacent to Cromer Road West, next to bus stops 16-22.
  • Terminal 4 – Located outside arrivals between the travel/help information point and Costa.
  • Terminal 5 – Outside arrivals hall, opposite bus stops 10-12.

London

London is one of the most populous cities on Earth, being home to more people than Berlin, Los Angeles and Madrid. The city’s commitment to public transport is legendary – aside from the iconic red buses, London’s armada of hackney carriages is unrivalled throughout the UK. Factor in the St. Pancras International train station and the labyrinth of the Underground, and the capital becomes a gateway to the near continent.

Of course, the nearby Heathrow Airport is the jewel in London’s crown, handling over 72 million passengers a year. That figure is expected to double when the third runway and sixth terminal are built between 2025 and 2029.

The Sights

London is the seat of the UK government, and a haven of municipal architecture, boasting some of the most recognisable landmarks in the world. Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament sit on the River Thames, about 16 miles from Heathrow Airport. Parliament is in the very centre of London, and an ideal place to kick off your trip.

Art aficionados will enjoy the Tate Modern and Tate Britain galleries, home to both modern and conventional art from the sixteenth century onwards. The National Portrait Gallery is also a valuable addition to your tour of the capital. The former two are located in the SW1 postcode district, on the south bank of the Thames, whereas the Portrait Gallery sits to the north of the river near Trafalgar Square.

South Bank is one of the most iconic parts of London. The London Eye, arguably the most glamorous fairground ride on Earth, The Globe Theatre and some wonderful sculptures that bring the work of Salvador Dali to metallic life can be found to the south of the river. Lovers of street theatre and drama will enjoy being pestered by the resident mime artists.

Football fans have a paradise of stadia at their feet. Chelsea, West Ham United, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham all claim London as their home, ensuring that Saturdays are raucous and busy. Whilst the clubs are spread throughout London, many taxi firms offer an ‘airport to landmark’ service at a fixed rate.

Of course, it’s important to make sure that your taxi picks you up in the right place. All Heathrow car parks are drop-off-only areas. Taxi firms will have to arrange to park in the short-stay car park prior to pick up, at a fair cost, and this fee will form part of your total fare.
