We're staying in a flat in East Finchley, about 5 minutes walk away from the tube station. On Sunday we're going to move to the Premier Inn near Heathrow at this address -
Heathrow Airport (Bath Road)
15 Bath Road
We want to leave the flat here at around 7PM. No rush as our flight out of Heathrow is the following day. We have Oyster cards for zones 1-3. There are four of us, my youngest is under 10 and oldest is 11 (has weekly travelcard for zones 1-3 which covers Sunday).
I'm confused as to what would be the cheapest way to get to Heathrow from here. I tried Google Maps and they say I have to take 2 tube lines and then a bus to get to the hotel address. I suspect that's outside zone 3 too, and have no idea how we add a longer distance destination to our Oysters or my son's travelcard?
Will it all be too complicated/expensive? Should we just opt for a taxi? I found this website -
And they quote 48 pounds for the ride on Sunday. Is that a reasonable amount? Can I trust them and book a taxi? If using the trains will end up costing 30-40 pounds for the four of us, maybe a taxi is a better option?
