Taxi how much?

Reding some poor reviews about the Hoppa bus to the Airport, so can anyone advise how much a taxi will cost from the Novotel to Terminal 4?

In what respect are the reviews of the Hoppa poor ? Its not especially cheap ( £4.50 pp each way now I believe ) but still likely to be cheaper than a taxi. Unfortunately the Novotel is located some distance from the A4/Bath Road, where a number of local bus services will take you into the airport free.

A local minicab may be an option if you really would prefer to avoid the Hoppa service though, and probably not work out that more expensive for 2 people. The hotel should be able to provide you with details of local companies

Could well be £20 for a taxi.

It was £12 several years ago and that was only T123. T4 is the far side of the airport.

To get to T4 from the Novotel by public transport will involve at least two buses and a lot of hanging around so it''s a case of Hoppa or taxi.The later will indeed cost at least £20.

Hi None1,

taxi's (the standard black cabs) are expensive. Try booking a minicab. I believe you are refering to Novatel in Hammersmith (i work close by). It will usually be hard to find at around £20 to go by cab to Heathrow .

http://www.minicabs4less.co.uk/, charges £32 from hammersmith.

http://london2airports.com - starting from £30

Here is one that i find to give the best price for airport transfers:

http://www.jafftransport.com/ at £20 to go to heathrow.

I hope the information is of value.

aki. Just give it a rest will you. The OP is clearly referring to the Novotel at West Drayton, not Hammersmith. For someone supposedly advertising a minicab service your knowledge of London is none too good is it ?

Do not use London2airports - they sent me a quote for £29 from SW7 to London Heathrow and on arrival demanded £49. As I didn't have the email quote, I called them, they accepted it was an error, agreed the refund to my bank account and then never paid. When I followed up 10 days later they said £49 was their rate and that was it. I don'tcare about £20, I do care about rip off cab companies, so use at your peril
