Default Heathrow to Southampton transfers

Does anyone know of a reliable tax/car service that will meet our plane and take us to the ship and then collect us at the ship and drive us to central London post cruise.

The Venice-Simplon Orient Express also has lovely service to London from Southampton. There are also a variety of upscale private car services that I know of, based in London that can offer private car and driver for you.

Best Regards,
Julia

Has anyone used the Cunard Bus Transfers? We expect to land at 6:30 am and wonder at what time do the buses arrive to take you Southampton?

We used the heathrow /southhampton bus shuttle last summer and it was something of an ordeal. The Cunard people meet you off the plane, then herd a big group of people and all their luggage to a spot in the middle of the airport until they get enough. Then they lead you and your luggage to a bus. Then they take you to an airport hotel where you wait for a hour or two in a lounge. There was coffee and cookies if you got a good seat, but all the good seats were taken so we had to wait in a ballroom type area where there was no air conditioning. THen they load you on another bus that takes you to Southhampton (v.hot and uncomfortable and lots of traffic) Driver took a local route because of congestion on the highway and we almost lost our cookies. My husband swears that he'll never so it again.

Thank you so much nancy for your information. For the price of $82 per person for the transfer we will take a private car pickup instead.

Wouldn't it be easier to fly into Southampton?,yes,there are flights but it is a connecting flight and not non-stop...should be something worth checking into.
