Heathrow is UK’s busiest airport and handles about 200,000 passengers every day. Several coach services, buses, railway links, the Underground tube and taxis connect the airport with the London city. The airport has five passenger terminals and all five terminals provide easy access to Heathrow taxi and other airport shuttle services.
Heathrow has three underground tube stations, one station for the terminals 1, 2 and 3 and one each for terminals 4 and 5. The Piccadilly Underground line connects the airport to central London. The tube is considered the cheapest mode of travel from the airport to Central London. Oyster cards can be used on the tube and a ticket to central London can cost you around 5 pounds. However tube lines are often disrupted by maintenance works, public holidays and even during weekends. The uncertainty and fitful services of the London Underground makes it an unreliable source of travel. The frequency of the tube services is also very low during the late hours of the night.
Heathrow taxi on the other hand is available all around the year. They are direct, door to door services that offer luxury and great comfort. The tube is crowded during the peak hours and does not offer infant seats. Heathrow taxi however can accommodate infants and heavy luggage in the most comfortable way. Another remarkable advantage of the Heathrow taxi is that it is time saving and prompt to the mark. When you hire a Heathrow taxi you relieve yourself of the anxiety of finding your way in the new city. The Underground tube is useful only if your destination is somewhere near the central London circle. If travelling beyond the city centre, passengers need to change their line and this adds more discomfort and stress to your journey.
While the general notion is that Heathrow taxi is expensive, passengers can car pool with friends or their travel mates thus bringing down the cost of the taxi without having to miss out on the luxury a Heathrow taxi offers. Taxi drivers of Heathrow taxi are friendly and warm. They ensure your safety and keep up with the right time. For passengers looking to enjoy absolute safety and comfort in London, Heathrow taxis are the best choice.
