Dover cruise ship late flight solution at Heathrow Airport

Spend your time productively in Windsor instead of killing time in a Heathrow Airport terminal

Windsor Castle
Windsor Castle

Most cruise ships at Dover are fully disembarked by around 9am, so with a transfer to Heathrow you can expect to be in the passenger terminal at 11am.

Great for a lunch time departure but not if your flight is not until late afternoon or evening, killing time in an airport terminal is not most people's idea of fun.

The proposal here is that rather than spend your time in the airport terminal you relax in Windsor, just 15 minutes drive from Heathrow.

The key to making this affordable is that you pay a nominal luggage storage charge, a flat fee no matter how long you stay in Windsor leaving you free to enjoy Windsor and Eton without waiting charges being clocked up. We can offer this service as the vehicles are based near Windsor, so the driver will not be waiting around.

Private transfers Dover - Windsor - Heathrow/Gatwick

We have a range of vehicles for all group sizes from a couple to large tour groups.

You'll be met as you exit the customs and baggage reclaim at Dover and soon be on your way to Windsor. You should arrive between 120 and 150 minutes later. You leave the luggage in the vehicle with the driver.

You stipulate what time you want to be picked up and start the second journey to Heathrow Airport, only about 15 minutes away. In the meantime you can enjoy any of the facets of Windsor and Eton. The times for departure at both Dover and Windsor are agreed at the time of reservation.

Windsor - what to expect

Store luggage in Windsor for small flat fee

You do not have to pay for the vehicle and driver's time while you are in Windsor because they won't be hanging around in a car park killing time.
