How to book a Taxi in Gatwick
London is one of the few cities in the world that never goes out of fashion! Even if you can no longer find the typical images we've all seen in the movies as you wander through the streets of the capital, London has always managed to retain a certain timeless charm. If you arrive here via one of the city's six airports, you should investigate the airport transfer options with care. Choosing one of our Taxis at Gatwick will enable you to reach your accommodation quickly and easily, at a reasonable price so that you can set off to explore the city's treasures immediately. In this article, you'll find all the useful information you'll need about the airport as well as helpful comparisons covering the various ways in which you can reach the city, as well as all the details about the Taxi service at Gatwick.
London Gatwick Airport
Gatwick is the second-largest airport serving London and is about 45 km south of the capital; it is located in the county of West Sussex and is served by the M23 and M25 Motorways, which connect it directly to the capital. Gatwick Airport has two passenger terminals, the North and South Terminals and is used by over ninety airlines including EasyJet and, previously, British Airways, who had temporarily suspended flights to and from Gatwick (you should check the airlines websites for updated flight availability). There is no Underground station at Gatwick, but there is an excellent and comprehensive network of buses and trains, such as the Gatwick Express, which connect the airport directly to the centre of London.
From Gatwick Airport to London with a private taxi
The fixed price taxi service at Gatwick offers numerous advantages: you'll be able to reach the centre of London in comfort, without having to worry about a taximeter clocking up the fare, which route to take or having to give the driver any special instructions. You will have your own personal driver at your disposal who will come to collect you from the airport Arrivals Hall and will be holding up a sign with your name on it for easy identification. The price is locked in from the moment that you finalise your booking and you won't have to pay any supplements for your luggage or if the traffic is particularly heavy or if your flight is delayed!
You will make your booking in advance online, selecting the time and date on which you want to be picked up. The service is available 24 hours a day.
You will only pay a small deposit in advance and will pay the driver the balance in cash;
You will enjoy the benefits of a fixed rate which is based on distance, not on travelling time;
You will be picked up at a place of your choice, whether that is the airport or from your accommodation;
The journey time is approximately one hour;
The Gatwick Taxi Service is operated by a fleet of licensed, highly professional and experienced drivers. The vehicle will be reserved for you and your family or friends' exclusive use, so you won't be sharing your journey with strangers. As mentioned previously, you won't incur any additional costs if your flight is delayed: you will just need to send an SMS message about the delay to the emergency number that will have been provided to you when you made your booking. For any other requirements, our multilingual Customer Service Team is available to assist you and respond to any questions or clarification you may require regarding your reservation.
How to make a booking
The convenience of the fixed price taxi service is further enhanced by the simplicity of the booking process: it will just take a few minutes to fill out the form that you will find on this page and the process is then complete. You will just need to have certain information to hand which is necessary for the system to be able to calculate your fare: your flight details, the full address of your destination, the date and time of arrival and departure. Once your data has been processed, you will receive the pricing for your journey, which will be locked in once you have finished making your booking. You will need to pay a small deposit or, if you prefer, you can pay the full amount by bank transfer, credit card or with a prepayment card. Once the transaction has been successfully completed, you will receive an email summarizing your booking details and a further booking confirmation will be sent to you by email within a couple of days.

Comparison of the different means of transport
In order to reach Gatwick Airport, there are various different options for both public and private means of transport:
Trains: from the station located at the South Terminal, you will be able to take the Gatwick Express directly into central London; the ticket costs around £20.00 and in 30 minutes, you will arrive at Victoria Station. Numerous other trains will enable you to reach other London stations or elsewhere in the UK;
Buses: the National Express coach service will charge you around £15.00 for a one way ticket and the journey time is around one hour and 30 minutes to Victoria Station; EasyJet also runs a bus service with tickets costing from £12.00 and a travel time in the region of 80 minutes;
Public Taxis: As is the case at other European airports, you will also find public taxis outside London's airports; the fares will vary depending on the time of day and the traffic conditions and the fares are governed by a taximeter. Each journey commences with a minimum charge of around £30.00 but the final cost won't be known in advance so in reality, this option can work out as being more expensive in the long run;
Private Taxi Service at Gatwick: the fares start from €70.00 (and this can vary depending on different factors) but you won't have to wait around at the airport to be collected, you won't have to try and find a taxi as you exit the terminal, the service is available 24 hours a day and the price is frozen from the moment that the booking is made. The journey isn't governed by a taximeter, precisely because the cost would not be known in advance and is therefore fixed, even if the flight is delayed or if you encounter bad traffic en route.
You won't incur any additional charges, but you will need to send an SMS text message (or WhatsApp) to the driver on the emergency number that will have been provided in your booking confirmation to let him know about the delay.
For those who are travelling alone, the cheapest option is a bus ticket, which starts from around £7.00. However, for a group of people or for families, the cheapest and quickest option is to choose a taxi at a fixed price.
