Why Are Taxis The Best Way To Travel From Heathrow

For all those traveling to London for the first time, the city can be a mesmerizing maze of beautiful monuments and historic stories. Find below why taxis are better than the other transfer service from London Heathrow.

London Heathrow is the UK’s busiest and largest airport. The airport is home to 5 passenger terminals and the airport is busy throughout the year and during all seasons. It is located in the London borough of Hillingdon and is 27 kilometres away from Central London. The airport supports over 70 million passengers every year. Heathrow is also the country’s most advanced airport and is well equipped with all basic facilities, shopping areas and restaurants.

To travel from the Heathrow to Central London directly passengers can choose to travel by the Heathrow Express, The Heathrow Connect or licensed taxis. The Heathrow Express trains run between Heathrow and Central London at a frequency of 15 minutes. The Heathrow Connect passes through the stations in West London before it reaches Paddington station. The service runs at a frequency of 30 minutes and the journey takes less than 30 minutes. Both services are cost effective and end at the Paddington station. However for a more comfortable drive and door to door service passengers have to depend upon licensed taxis.

Tourists visiting London for the first time find taxis as the best way to start a leisure trip. Taxis are the easiest and the most stress free way of finding one’s way in a city as busy as London. While public transport is not available during late hours of the night and is less frequent during public holidays, taxis are available 24/7, 365 days of the year. Neither bad weather nor public holidays can interrupt taxi services to the airport.

When a passenger chooses to pre book a taxi or a minicab service it relieves them of the anxiety of finding one’s way in a new city with their entire luggage and infants. All taxis are licensed and all taxi drivers hold a valid license thus eliminating any doubts of insecurity. Taxi drivers are trustworthy and they take the entire responsibility of transferring you from Heathrow to your destination safely and at the right time. They are well trained to handle traffic situations and are well versed with all locations and are familiar with even the quaintest streets of this English capital. Late night travelling in taxi is 100 percent safe and in most cases the only option due to unavailability of public transport.
