Uber beats Heathrow Express


Don’t get me wrong, I love the convenience of the Heathrow Express.  Just a short walk from most any terminal, easily purchasable tickets and 15 minutes later you are @ Paddington Station in London.  Last week I traveled to Heathrow, then caught the train into London, the price for myself and son 40 pounds.  Of course, once I got to Paddington, it was another “Que” for a short taxi ride which was another 8 pounds.

On the return,  I choose to go Uber, as my son wasn’t feeling well and I wanted to make it as easy as I could for him.  From door to door, the Uber fee was only 37 pounds.  I do love London taxis and believe they are the best in the world, however this same trip in a less comfortable taxi would’ve been around 60-70 pounds.
