On Christmas day, I'm travelling with my family from Heathrow at 8 am on a long-haul journey. We are staying in a Travelodge about 3 miles from Terminal 4, and it turns out that the Hotel Hoppa and all public transport will not be running. I have been quoted £40 for a minicab at about 5 am to the airport - including Christmas day surcharges.
Is this reasonable? If not, does anybody have any experience (or any good minicab numbers) of any recommendable services?
Thank you for any help!
