Getting from Gatwick airport to central London can often be a less than tantalising prospect, especially if you are new to flying or unfamiliar with being in the UK.
There are a myriad of public transport options that can help you to make the journey into the capital. However, British public transportation’s reputation for being over-priced and under-reliable is well warranted. Indeed, the more reliable options such as the Gatwick Express are relatively quick and efficient, yet the costs involved are considerable. Conversely, the various different buses and coaches available are not quite as extortionate, but are temperamental at best when it comes to reliability.
Because Gatwick Airport is located at southern-most tip of Greater London, most people assume that using a London taxi (i.e. a black cab) to make the journey into the city centre is super-expensive. Indeed, they are correct, as black cabs operate on a meter system and so charge handsomely for the many and varied ‘traffic negotiations’ that cabbies inevitably seem to make.
However, there is cheaper and altogether more enjoyable Gatwick airport taxi option available.
Indeed, we here at Airport Pickups London operate quick, reliable and affordable Gatwick to London transfers 365 days of the year. Unlike black cabs, our friendly drivers will meet you at the airport, help you with your luggage and get you straight into the city without any fuss or deviations.
