Split Cab from Heathrow to Hotel

Has anyone recently used the Split Cab from Heathrow to Hotel? Are they waiting for you when and where they were supposed to be? Did you have to make too many stops before heading for London?

Why not take the Underground? Thousands do so every day, and I suspect TfL's reliability will be better than a shared ride service.

On what date and at what time of day does your flight arrive at Heathrow, and where specifically in central London is your destination?

Arriving 3/3 at 7:30am going to Kensington area. The Underground is too difficult with 2 suit cases.

Never used the split cab fare service, but if it's cheaper then full fare, why not.

Id always recommend underground first, but if you struggle carrying luggage them it may not be for you.

Have you considered pre booking a minicab.

'Arriving 3/3 at 7:30am going to Kensington area. The Underground is too difficult with 2 suit cases.' Unless you plan to travel with two checked bags (that is, presuming one of your bags will be a rollaboard) then split the difference and take the Underground and a black cab.

It's a step free trip from Heathrow to Earl's Court station. Take the lift up from Piccadilly line platform to the Earl's Court Road ticket hall and way out. Leave the station and step away from the busy entrance area, wait a minute for a black cab to come by, hail it and take it to your unknown Kensington area destination. Travel time is about 25 minutes from Heathrow to Earl's Court.

If you must travel by road then book a legitimate minicab: www.parkercarservice.co.uk or www.blackberrycars.com

struggling with luggage is too difficult on Underground. Is a Minicab cheaper than the regular taxi? I looked up several companies suggested on this site and they all seem to be running around $55 to $75.

"struggling with luggage is too difficult on Underground"

Where is the pick up point for the cab and how have you evaluated that it will be easier to get to than the step free underground station?

Yes £40 is about right into central London - for that they meet you at arrivals with a name board and drive to the door of your destination. If you were simply to get a cab off the rank at Heathrow it could be double that, whereas the Tube is 1/10th of that for one person.

Cut down on the luggage, it is never good to travel with more stuff than you can manage. It makes everything more difficult.
