We are from Malaysia and will be arriving at Heathrow around 4,20 pm in August and intend to fly to Lucerne the same day to meet our friend in Switzerland.
What is the cheapest flight available as I understand that the departure tax from Heathrow is very high for Low cost Carriers, thus the Low Cost Carriers depart from Gatwick or Stansted.? These carriers land at Basel which is further from Lucerne than Zurich .
Only British Airways and Swiss Air flies from LHR to Zurich and the fare is on the high side.
Bearing in mind the baggage, CIQ clearance and check in requirement of 2 hours before flight and the time taken to the Low Cost terminals, I wonder whether we can make it on time to take the flight to Lucerne.
If not , which budget Hotel near these two Low Cost Terminal would be good for overnight stay.?
Thank You for the suggestions and answers.
