You might be better off asking on the Southampton forum for this as they are more likely to know local taxis.

Cheap taxi Southampton Gatwick is a very difficult combination to find - you are probably looking at £100 each way.

We usually drive and park off airport at APH or Airparks

There are no direct coaches to Gatwick, you would change at Heathrow which is indirect.

Direct trains are available for as little as £8 per person each way eg …nationalrail.co.uk/service/…dep

Some trains involve a change at Clapham junction but they are are only marginally faster and more expensive than the direct trains which go along the south coast.

The rail journey is pleasant enough and good value if you book Advance tickets and restrict yourselves to your booked train.

Thank you we usually drive up and use airparks, we find them really good, but we are going to florida and I don't fancy driving for 1.5 hours once we get back from a night flight.
