In 2019, 65% of all our business were airport transfers from Cambridge to Heathrow. That’s no surprise with Heathrow being the UK’s busiest airport, and is the 7th busiest airport in the world, carrying just under 81 million passengers in 2019.
How long does it take to get from Cambridge to Heathrow?
The transfer time from Cambridge to Heathrow is hugely dependant on the time you are travelling. At a weekend, or during the day, the transfer time can be around 1 hour and 45 minutes. If you are travelling during rush hour, then the time you should allow would be up to 3 hours.
If you are looking to book an airport transfer from Cambridge to Heathrow, we suggest letting us know what time you would like to arrive at Heathrow and we will set the pick up time for you, dependant on the specific road conditions for your day of travel.
Many of our passengers, especially those travelling on long haul flights, or business travellers, opt to stay at a Heathrow Hotel the night before to save the travel time during rush hour.
If you are looking for a Heathrow Hotel, you will be spoilt for choice as there are many surrounding the various terminals. Our top tip would be to pick one that provides a shuttle service to the terminals if you are not familiar with the area.
Why should I book a Cambridge to Heathrow Taxi?
If you are off on your holiday, why not start it the right way by booking your airport transfer with us.
Parking at Heathrow is around £150.00 for a standard 14-night holiday if you want to be within walking distance of the airport once you arrive. Then you have to plan your route, get the car loaded, deal with the traffic, find the airport parking and find your way to the terminal, all while carrying your own luggage!
