Convenient, Frequent, And Affordable
National Express coaches are going during the night and day, letting you make your flight without fear.
Pick-Up And Drop-Off Data
Heathrow Airport has five terminals, and National Express picks up from a number of terminals and points to make it simpler for you. Find out which terminal you are flying from, or arriving into, and just choose the closest stop to where you are:
Terminals 1 and 3:
The coaches will arrive and leave from the Central Bus Station, which is just a five-minute walk from the terminal buildings with the left, travelators, and escalators.
The coaches will use stops 13 and 14 by the terminal building at the arrivals level. There are free transfers to Terminal 5 and Central Bus Station that are made at stop 7 near the arrivals area.
The coaches will use stops 13-16 by the terminal building in the arrivals area.
Free Connection Services
You can use all the free connection services between the airport terminals on the coaches – or by travelling Heathrow Express and Heathrow Connect.
There are often long check-in and security waiting periods at Heathrow Airport. The best idea is to book an airport transfer bus that will arrive at the terminal a minimum of three hours before the flight leaves.
You can travel to and from Heathrow Airport for as low as £15, but just one way. There is limited availability, though. There is also a £1 booking fee. You need to book a minimum of two months in advance.
To make sure you have a stress-free travel experience, it is a good idea to get to that airport at least three hours before the time the flight is scheduled to leave.
There are a number of things to keep you busy at the airport like – currency exchanges, retail shops, bars, and restaurants.
Is Your Flight Delayed?
If your flight gets delayed, you can book it for a later journey for a small £5 administration fee (you may have to pay more depending on the kind of ticket you purchase.)
You just need to go to the airport ticket office when you arrive, or if there’s not a ticket office nearby, just call them. The lines are open around the clock, and the calls are charged at 10p for each minute (plus network extras).
Transfers Between Airports
National Express shuttles go between Birmingham, Luton, Stansted, Gatwick, and Heathrow airports.
Their dedicated shuttle will take you straight from Heathrow straight to the entrance of Gatwick airport for just £25 one-way and £40 for a return trip.
National Express coaches to and from Heathrow airport are the way to go if you have to get where you’re going on time. Their coaches go to all five terminals, and you can get anywhere you need to go without a care.
