buses from sevenoaks to Gatwick

Hello, please could you advise the bus route from sevenoaks to Gatwick travelling on Monday early morning. I'm struggling to find anything on buses.

My boss doesn't want to come into London first so train is not a viable option.

He mentioned the X90 but it seems to just do Oxford.

As far as I know there are no buses

Even by train there is no sensible alternative to going into London and coming out again

Your boss doesn't have a clue as to where Sevenoaks is by the sound of it

There are no buses. If he doesn't want to go into london then he could catch a train to Tonbridge, then to Redhill and finally Gatwick. But allowing for connections it might take some time.

A car service might be the best option - it's only 25 miles and if it is before rush hour, about 30 minutes.

If not a minicab/taxi, Southeastern train to London Bridge then First Capital Connect or Southern train to Gatwick Airport is the only sensible route.

and depending on the time needed to be at Gatwick the minicab may be the only route

I used to live in Sevenoaks - travelled to Gatwick many times -never had much luck with the trains so I used Beeline taxi company - 01732-456214

www.sevenoakstaxis.com

Allow lots of extra time if using the trains -esp at weekends.

There was a bus it was discontinued a year or more ago, too few passengers.

They also mentioned being hamstrung by massive delays on the motorways!

I used to live in Sevenoaks. The way I went was as above, via Tonbridge and Redhill. Saves paying the expensive fare via London and also fighting with the crowds.

The first journey going that way on weekdays is now at 0606 (bit of a long wait between trains on that one, arrival 0739) then 0703 , 0743 etc. Those later trains take 1hr 15 minutes or thereabouts. Cost £11.80.

Otherwise the taxi option is sensible, the only alternative and could take half the time - barring motorway delays of course!

(I travel through Gatwick 4 or 5 times a year now. I always plan to take a train back to the airport an hour before I really need to, no matter what the time of day or day of the week. The journey from Tonbridge is quicker than by road and at least I can be slightly smug when I hear of 10 mile tailbacks on the M23 owing to a accident. I have only experienced one significant train delay in six years of doing that and even then we got going just as panic mode was setting in and got to the airport just in time.)
