At work we use "Radio Taxis" for passengers in wheelcharis. They are very good, but not cheap.
Thanks for the recommendation. I'll look at radio taxis website.
Going to Mint Hotel, John Islip Street
Radio Taxis are black cabs, which are likely to cost more than a private car service.
JustAirports can offer an MPV from LHR to SW1 for £46 - www.justairports.com to make a booking. Have a look at www.expressways.co.uk as their rates should be in line with those from Just. A pre-booked black cab from LHR to John Islip Street will cost perhaps £65 - 70.
Just got back from London. There were 7 of us (adults) so we needed more than a minivan. We used Hummingbird Cars and were VERY satisfied! They called my cell phone AND emailed the day before the arrival at Heathrow, to reconfirm (and did the same thing the day before we were to get picked up at our hotel for the return trip to Heathrow.) They were early both times: waiting for us when we were ready to go. The minibus (8 passenger) was very nice, with plenty of room. They were also BY FAR the CHEAPEST of any of the services I contacted. I got maybe a dozen quotes from different firms, and Hummingbird Cars were the cheapest. I can't recommend them enough. We'll use them again in December!
Thanks for the feedback. Used Hummingbird cars. Would certainly recommend. On time at airport when we arrived and at hotel for return journey. Also got telephone calls the day before to confirm our bookings. Very reasonable prices. Could either choose to pay upfront or pay driver on the day. Very happy with service.

I'm a single person traveling and would like ride/taxi to a hotel (which isn't booked yet)...should I just take a taxi form the aiport or book Hummingbird?
susanod, you might do better to start your own thread as people might think this one has served its purpose. However, it is generally said that pre-booked services are substantially less expensive than taxis you hail at the airport. But once you know where you are staying, you may find that the coach or even the Tube is preferable. It may sound intimidating, but the difference between, oh, 40 GBP and 5 or 6 GBP supplies a lot of courage for me!
