I love using UberX in Los Angeles to get from Downtown LA to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and vice versa. I’ve previously used Uber in foreign countries such as Singapore and Bogota to get around the city and have been highly satisfied. When I was in London last week, my friend needed to get from London Heathrow Airport (LHR) to St Pancras International Train Station. This is my experience using Uber in London.
The price of an UberX from LHR Heathrow Airport to Central London is a flat rate of 37 GBP ~ $57.97 USD which isn’t too bad at all because the journey takes 45 minutes by car with no traffic.
My friend was new to Uber, so she signed up as a new customer under my referral and received 10 GBP off her first ride. (Disclosure: I also receive a ride credit if you sign up with my link)
We stayed at the Sheraton Heathrow Airport hotel and requested an UberX ride at 4:34am which had an estimated wait time of 6 minutes.
The driver came in a Honda Insight Hybrid car and the entire ride to the St. Pancras/Kings Cross Station took 45 minutes.
The total ended up being 27GBP ~ $42.30 USD (after the 10 GBP new user ride discount) which is an absolute bargain for London.
