Gatwick Airport To / From London by Private Vehicle

Private Transfer Options For Couples, Families & Groups By Car, Van and Charter Bus

Private Cars For Airport Transfers

Gatwick Airport is about 28 miles (45 kms) south of the centre of London.

The familiar London black taxis are not available at Gatwick as the airport is too far outside London. A company called Checker Cars are the designated 'official' taxi operator at the airport operating cars into London. Other cheaper companies are available but you have to prebook these before travelling.


A taxi transfer from Gatwick to Central London is not very popular with passengers. Although the distance is just 30 miles, the roads as such that the fastest transfer takes one hour, often much, much more. The journey is stop start through suburbia, there is no motorway grade road. Train is faster and cheaper.

However, if you have significant luggage transfers to your accommodation can be tedious and stressful and if there are a few of you make financial sense too.


We offer private transfers for all numbers from small sedan/saloon size cars to large touring coaches for large groups. Your driver will be waiting for you as you exit the customs/baggage hall and escort you to the waiting vehicle.

At hotels we will come to the reception area to find you at the time you have stipulated at the time of reservation.

Full Size Touring Coaches For Large Groups

Cruise Shuttle Bus From London

If you have a large group then that is not a problem either.

The largest coaches are 50-72 seat coaches but we also have access to vehicles half that size.


With large groups on cruises the capacity issue is not normally passenger numbers but luggage.

UK coaches are built to European traveller requirements, where one large case is perfectly adequate. A typical 50 seat coach will be able to accommodate around 60 large cases in the luggage hold.

For a group travelling with North American flight allowances a 50 seat coach will typically only be able to accommodate the luggage of 35 such passengers maximum.


With large groups just as small groups multi- drop and pick-ups from hotels is routine and if you require sightseeing we can arrange a guide whether it be an orientation tour of London or a niche interest of the group.
