Cost for a Taxi from Heathrow Airport to Four Seasons Hotel

I am accompanying my DH on a business trip to Farnborough. We are staying at the Four Seasons in Hampshire. Debating as to renting a car or taking a taxi from Heathrow.

Will be in the middle of a 10 day trip so luggage makes the express/train/tube/train/taxi option look highly undesirable and lengthy. Any idea what a taxi would cost? Hotel notes the distance/time as 43km/27 miles and 45 minutes.

Thanks in advance!

You have misjudged the public transport options, a coach will get you to Woking, from where you can get a train to the nearest town.

However the hotel is poorly served by public transport, so have you considered how you will travel during your stay?

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your response. DH was planning on taking taxi's to meetings in Farnborough. I was going to mostly hang out at the resort during the day and take taxi's to meet the Team for Dinner at night (Fleet one night and Farnborough the 2nd night). We are at the 4S 2 nights and then the Aviator for the 3rd. I understand the Aviator has much better public transportation options.

Is this reasonable or is a car a must? DH is reluctant to rent a car as he is concerned about delays getting to meetings.

Those roundabouts are a killer when you are by yourself and have no one to help navigate. Making 2 roundabout mistakes in a row will pretty much kill an afternoon for a couple of rubes like us. Drove for hundres of miles in New Zealand with no problem, For some reason, our experience specifically in Southern England has been dreadful in the past.

Thanks for your guidance.

Dinez T, this post is nearly 2 years old, I strongly suspect that the OP has been and gone.
