London Gatwick is UK’s second largest and busiest airport. It is located in West Sussex and is 30 miles away from the heart of the city. It is one the fastest growing airports in terms of passenger population and has also shown considerable improvements in logistics and infrastructure over the last decade.
Gatwick is made up of two passenger terminals, North and the South. The terminals are home to an extensive range of fashion stores, electronic outlets, restaurants, bars and cafes. Railway station in Gatwick is maintained by Network Rail and serves as the most important and fastest way of travelling from the airport to Central London. Gatwick Express departs from the South terminal and takes exactly 30 minutes to reach Victoria station in Central London. Apart from this, Southern services, Thameslink and First Great Western services take passengers from Gatwick to different parts of the city. Buses and private coaches can also be availed from both terminals to reach Central London from Gatwick.
Superficially, public transport carries the reputation of being a cost-effective means of travelling between London airports. However, the reality is different when it comes to passengers travelling in a large group, public transport is most certainly expensive than private transfer to Gatwick airport. When travelling as group of 3 or 4, using trains or buses, passengers are required to shred money for every individual ticket and are also forced to accept the discomfort of crowded spaces.
However while booking a minicab, passengers can save substantial amount of money by car-pooling with their fellow passengers and can also benefit from various perks offered by minicab service providers. Another simple trick to save more money while booking minicabs is by using a credit or debit card to make payments as some of the minicab service providers offers seasonal discounts and special offers for return bookings.
Minicab service charges are inclusive of airport parking charge and pickup rescheduling charges. With these simple tricks in place, minicabs are undoubtedly the cheapest private transfer from Gatwick for groups of three of four.
