Hi there,

Just as a heads up DO NOT wait until you get to Heathrow & grab a taxi there, yes there will be plenty, but the cost is likely to as much as the entire cruise - ok that's a slight exageration, but we had a work colleague travel from Heathrow to our offices last month, a distance of only 57 miles, and they wanted 270 for that journey. He had 1 case, 1 laptop bag and himself. We eventually got the driver to accept 200 in cash !!!

Okay onto the serious stuff now. The transfer is just on 100 miles, and will take around 2 hours, so allow yourself plenty of time.
I would suggest that unless someone comes up with an offer you can't refuse, then enter https://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=e...JeOJ6gG23NCiCw
into your web browser & check out the adverts there, some give fixed prices of 115, whilst others let you enter the details on line to get quotes.

Just make sure that you let them know how much luggage & how many people so that they provide a vehicle with sufficient capacity - many taxis have the secure trailers on them now.

Hope this gives you some options & thoughts.

Alan.
