When you land at any London airport, the options to pick your mode of transport on the spot can be daunting. You may find difficulty in locating the best form of transport out of the airport. Black cabs and buses could be used instantly, provided there is availability for you and your luggage. You will have to queue. This is not a very good idea if you are travelling with kids or the elderly and have a lot of luggage.
The best option for your airport transfer would be a private hire vehicle. When you land, the driver waits for you at the arrivals or the information desk with a sign board bearing your name. He helps you with your luggage and escorts you to the taxi. Drivers who work for private transport companies are licensed by the Public Carriage Office as are their cars. In addition, you get a vehicle that fits all your baggage and has seats for children and infants, all at your convenience. Pre-book your transfer if you need any diversions along the way. If you are new to London, the drivers tend to be quite knowledgeable about London and do give information during your transfer travel in the taxi, just ask.
The main plus of pre-booking a transfer in advance is that it is convenient. You can feel safe in the knowledge that you have organized your transport in advance.
All said above sounds good, right?
You should always do your research. There are a lot of companies offering private taxi services. Make sure you choose the right one. Look at how long they have been operating, look at their customer feedback, do they offer 24 hours telephone support? Just do some basic checks. Book with the right company and enjoy your taxi transfer and have a relaxed and hassle free journey.
