Private Luton Airport Cars For Airport Transfers

The distance between Luton and Heathrow is around 35 miles (56km). The airports are linked by two motorways.


In normal traffic conditions a motor vehicle will take around 50 minutes to complete the journey.

Minimum times between flights?

Road congestion warning!

The motorways used are some of the busiest and most congested in the UK. Between 6am and 10am and 4pm and 7pm during weekdays there is a strong likelihood of delays through traffic congestion.


On Sundays late afternoon and evenings there is often severe congestion as well.


The absolute minimum time between flights without contingency that you should contemplate making a transfer between Heathrow and Luton is 3.5 hours.

Scheduled bus alternative between Heathrow & Luton airports

The only direct alternative transport between Heathrow and Luton Airport are the National Express scheduled coaches. The Heathrow - Luton buses are not cheap, if there are four/five or more of you a private car may be cheaper as well as being faster and more convenient.

Vehicle options - from 1 passenger to 100!

We have options to cater for all party sizes. On transfers the amount of luggage can be as critical to the right selection of vehicle as number of passengers, so do pause to reflect on this aspect.

Mini buses for groups of 8 to 16

Air conditioned roomy small buses with 8, 12 or 16 seats and lots of luggage room for small groups. These buses are proper purpose built buses, not cramped converted vans.


Heathrow Airport Mini Bus

These small buses are small enough to get in the car parks at airports, big enough to qualify to use the special bus lanes in Central London.


The buses can also carry outsize items, commonly wheelchairs, electric scooters, bicycles and surfboards.

Drivers meet and greet at airports, hotels and ports just like the cars.

Full size touring coaches for large groups

If you have a large group then that is not a problem either. The largest coaches are 50 seat coaches but we also have access to vehicles half that size.


With large groups if your average passenger is bringing more than one large case and a small item of hand luggage it might be the luggage capacity of the vehicle rather than the number of passengers that drives the correct size of vehicle required. The point being that estimating the amount of luggage you will be bringing is just as important as knowing how many people in your group.

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.

Spare time at the Airport? - Visit historic Windsor beside Heathrow Airport

If you have a late flight out of Heathrow and have to check out of your hotel by late morning, then you have time to kill. Similarly, if you are in transit between flights with a long gap in between, hanging around at the airport is something most people dread.


A much more attractive proposition is to spend your time in the attractive town of Windsor, just a few miles from Heathrow Airport. It is most famous for Windsor Castle but there is much much more to Windsor and Eton than just the castle.


We have flexible packages for all group sizes. A luggage storage service is available whilst you are in Windsor and there is a flat fee rate, no matter how much or little time you spend in Windsor - no waiting time charges apply.


The stopover solution is a private solution customised to every customer. This is not a public tour with set operating times.
