Is uber available from heathrow into the city?also can 4 people use it? Is it a better option than the local taxis or capitol taxis/
yes it's available
yes you can have 4 passengers
all depends on your destination on whether it's better option than local taxis
Where are you going in London and at what time and on what day of the week? That's important information for us to be able to advise you.
Any kind of taxi can be much slower and will always be more expensive than using the Underground.
You may decide that it's worth it after a long flight with lots of bags, if that's what you have.
There are issues with Uber picking up at Heathrow - which others can explain - but it's not convenient. Avoid black cabs and pre-order a minicab. Blackberry Cars always gets good reviews and I like Abetta Cars. They will ask how many passengers you are and how many bags and will send the right sized car or MPV, and will also monitor your flight so they know when you will arrive.Edited: 11 June 2018, 17:39
Search the forum, there are also lots of well regarded car services who will meet you at arrivals with a name board- similar prices to Uber ( who you have to meet in an adjacent car park)
I tried to get a quote with Uber from Heathrow when my pre-booked taxi did not turn up, as it was involved in an accident. I think Uber wanted to share a cab with other passenger and even then more expensive. I did not understand what was going on. A pre-booked cab is better and reserved for you. They will keep an eye on your flight.
