Hotel Hoppa Heathrow - Airport Hotel Transfer Bus

Linking Heathrow Airport's Main Hotels & Heathrow Passenger Terminals

Heathrow Hoppa Heathrow Airport Hotel Transfer Bus

Heathrow Hotel Transfers :

Unlike most international airports, Heathrow's hotels are not allowed to operate their own hotel shuttle vehicles.

Instead fixed route "Hotel Hoppa " buses are operated, each route services two or three Heathrow hotels. There are two sets of routes from each hotel. One services Terminals 2 and 3. the other Terminals 4 and 5. A very few hotels do not service Terminal 4 at all.

It is also possible to use alternative free local buses to many hotels - of course this somehow isn't brought to the attention of most travellers.

Heathrow Hotel Hoppa Bus

Hoppa Buses pick up from outside the arrivals hall of each of the passenger terminals.

The Hoppa Hotel Buses are well signed, just look up and the Hoppa Buses are signed together with the car parking and car hire shuttle buses, London Underground and Heathrow Express trains.

When you get to the bus bays check you are at the right stop, Hotel Hoppa buses normally depart from several bus bays for the different Hotel Hoppa bus routes.

Also remember that several chains have more than one hotel at Heathrow served by different Hotel Hoppa routes. These include Holiday Inn (4), Sheraton (2), Marriott (2), Travelodge (2), Hilton (2) and Premier Inn (3).

On the way back to the airport from the hotels remember there will be 2 different Hoppa Bus routes from each hotel. One serves Terminal 4 and 5, the other serves 2 and 3.

Hoppa Timetables

Heathrow Hotel Hoppa Bus Timetables & Hotels Serviced

Hoppa Buses service most of the mainstream hotels around the perimeter of the airport. They do not visit small independent guest house type accommodation.

If you have a very early or late flight its worth checking the last and first buses, frequency and operating hours vary from hotel to hotel. It will normally take you 45 to 75 minutes to get to the Hoppa Bus bus stop after your flight has landed.

Do study the timetables as there are anomalies when you look at a small minority of Heathrow Hotels serviced. For example the Holiday Inn Express Terminal 5 and Marriott Windsor Hoppa Buses do not serve Terminal 4, the Travelodge Terminal 5 Hoppa only goes to Terminal 5 and the Hilton Garden Inn Hoppa doesn't run to Terminals 2 and 3 during the middle of the day.

Heathrow Hotel Hoppa Luggage

Luggage racks are within the Hoppa Bus. You have to independently carry your luggage on board the bus and position them on the luggage racks which are by the door and driver.

Heathrow Hotel Hoppa Bus Ticketing

There are ticket machines at most bus stops. They take cash (UK cash and no change given) and credit cards. You can also buy tickets from the Central Bus Station ticket office between Terminals 2 and 3 and the British Hotel reservation centre kiosks in Terminals 2 and 3.

A two tier pricing system operates. If you buy tickets from the driver you pay a small surcharge to that if you buy on-line or from the ticket machines.

If you pay the driver they only take cash in British pounds.

The ticket machines take major credit cards as well as British cash.

On-line, using the Hoppa Bus web site (link above) major credit cards and debit cards are taken and you get an e-ticket e-mailed to you in an instantly.

The Hoppa Bus service is operated by National Express, UK's largest inter city coach operator. You can buy tickets from their web site that covers both the Hoppa Bus and their services to and from Heathrow in one simple ticketing solution.

Local Public Buses to Hotels (Many Free)

U3 Local Heathrow Airport Bus

A curious policy is being operated by the owner of Heathrow Airport. The Official Hoppa Bus charges to each hotel. At the same time the airport subsidises all public buses so that any journey from the terminals to anywhere on the perimeter roads is completely free.

In many cases these buses stop right outside the hotel entrance.

Buses are free as long as you get off/on the buses on the perimeter roads of the airport, (where many hotels are).

All of these buses go onto local towns like Hounslow, Slough and Feltham. Although not free they are a cheap way of finding entertainment and places to eat at local prices.

Many of the buses run a 24x7 schedule and all run from early morning until late evening.
