As a tourist visiting London or the surrounding regions, getting around can be a little tricky. It’s not easy to hop from place to place, especially when you’re arriving by plane since the major airports are all a fair distance from most of the main attractions in the city.
Fortunately, you don’t have to spend a great deal of money to get around in London, especially if you know what you need and you plan in advance. Hiring private transport can save you time, money and energy if you do it right, compared with taking on public transport. You should certainly think about taking a minicab service between Gatwick, Stansted or Luton Airport and London. Here are a few of the benefits you might consider.
Time – If you’re visiting London from elsewhere in the UK, or especially from abroad, you want to maximise the amount of usable time you get in the city, allowing you to see and do more. Wasting time waiting for trains and buses can be frustrating, but a minicab cuts this time significantly.
Money – There’s something to be said for the cost saving of making your journey as efficient as possible, only taking the quickest and most direct route. Taking a costly train that doesn’t take you right to your end destination can become less than economical.
Convenience – When travelling it’s easy to get frustrated and tired with the long journey. You might feel up to it now, but when it comes to the day and you’ve spent hours on a plane, you just want to arrive without the hassle of public transport. A minicab simply takes you where you need to go, at the time you need to be there.
Comfort – Don’t forget how much more comfortable the journey could be, having someone to assist you with your luggage and the benefit of privacy in your own taxi. This definitely should be factored in, especially if you’re going for a high-end luxury holiday. Why compromise when it comes to airport transfers or getting around once you’re in London?
