If your travels take you over to London before the end of the month, be on the lookout for Heathrow Express employees before you hit passport control. Why? Because they are handing out vouchers good for 50% off on Heathrow Express transfers to Paddington Station.
Yes, that’s right, I said 50% off!
So not only is the Heathrow Express the quickest way to get to central London, it’s also the cheapest (at least through August 26).
Access features aboard Heathrow Express trains include a minimal gap between the platform and the train, dedicated spaces for wheelchair-users and emergency call buttons near the wheelchair spaces. The journey from Heathrow to Paddington Station takes just 15 minutes; and once you get to Paddington, you can hail an accessible taxi to your final destination.
It’s as easy as pie.
And if you’re planning a trip across the Big Pond, be sure and surf over to Go World Travel (www.goworldtravel.com) next month and read my September column — “Wheeling Around London”. It’s a great resource for your London visit.
