There are various amounts of ways that you can transfer from Gatwick to Heathrow. This can be through train, coach, bus or taxi. However it has been commonly noted that taxis have proven to be safer, more reliable and faster than the other forms of transport. So for the purpose of this article we will be discussing the 5 main advantages of private taxi transfer from airport to airport and why you should consider it on your next journey.


Taxis are one of the most convenient forms of transport there is. You call them, book a time, get a price and they arrive and help you with your bags. This cannot be said for other forms of transport. A disadvantage of buses and coaches is that you will have to travel with numerous other people and have less space than you normally would. Trains however change their times and you can never tell how busy they are going to be. When it comes to taxis you can just put your bags in the boot, and have plenty of room for you and your party when it comes to getting to Heathrow airport.


Besides being just convenient, taxis are known to be safer. This proves especially true if you are making the transfer later at night. When it comes down to the public you have no control over their actions or the people on public transport. When you are travelling alone it would also be advised to take a taxi. All private hire taxis within the United Kingdom are required to be licensed and all drivers are responsible for the safety of its passengers.


When travelling within a group, taxis are the much cheaper option by far. Travelling within a group means that you can cut the travel costs by each person that travels and ultimately have a cheaper final fare. Comparing this to other forms of transport where you will have to pay by a ‘seat’ rather than your journey, it’s effective in being cheaper.

Added Help

When you travel by public transport there is only a limited amount of help that you are going to receive. This is if you are disabled or have an accident on board. However the difference between that and a private taxi hire is that you will get the full range of help from a taxi driver. This can include helping people with their bags, the routes to the airport or flight information.

More Reliable

As briefly mentioned earlier, taxis are much more reliable than other forms of transport. This can be extremely vital when you need to make an important transfer link between airports. When you are short on time the most important considerations you’re going to have are how cheap the transport is going to be, how reliable it is and how long it’s going to take. Many people choose private taxi hire from Gatwick to Heathrow for this reason alone.

These just some advantages of private hire taxi firms when making transfer links between airports. Be sure to find out as much information as possible about specific firms before booking to ensure a smooth and enjoyable journey.
