Private Car from Gatwick to Southampton Hotel

Any recommendation for a private car service from Gatwick to Southampton will be appreciated. In the past we used the train but cannot do so because of my wife's disability.

We used this company earlier this year for trips to and from Heathrow. They cover most areas and were very straightforward to deal with, the cars comfortable and the drivers courteous and the price very reasonable.

British trains are getting a lot better for disabled access,

Station staff will assist with ramps for getting wheelchairs on and off trains and many stations have level access routes or elevators to avoid steps. Both Gatwick and Southampton stations do. Gatwick special needs assistance (booked via your airline) should assist you from airport gate through to to the station platform

See nationalrail.co.uk/stations_destinations/dis… for a general guide to accessibility.

Also for Southampton station nationalrail.co.uk/stations/sjp/SOU/stationO… and Gatwick nationalrail.co.uk/stations/sjp/GTW/stationO…

Agree with KazpUK but also with Mymsman: Gatwick trains are easy to board now and if you let National Rail of your travel arrangements the train guard with arrange help throughout the journey and at Southampton Central, where you can arrange a disabled taxi to your destination.
