Transportation from Richmond to Williamsburg?

We are coming out to Williamsburg in July, possibly flying into Richmond so will need to get a taxi from the airport.

Does anyone know of any good web links for this kind of journey?

Also how long would the journey take?

Thank you all.

There are several limo services from Richmond International Airport to Williamsburg -- here is a link to the RIC airport transportation site: www.flyrichmond.com/Load.php…

You might also consider renting a car from and back to the airport -- after comparing costs, having a car while here may be economically feasible as well. Rental car companies are also noted on the airport website.

The trip from Richmond to downtown Williamsburg is 45 minutes to an hour, straight down I-64.

Hi, kencar, welcome to the forum. You've made a good choice for Williamsburg in RIC, unless you are coming from someplace that actually serves PHF (Newport News/Williamsburg International - Patrick Henry Field) directly. It is even closer than Richmond.

Not sure why you wouldn't want your own car (such a typically American comment, I know!). If you are staying with friends, or at the college, or at an official hotel, and don't intend to explore the wider area, you'll be fine without one, of course. But just in case you think having your own wheels might give you more flexibility, you should rest assured that traffic in the area is pretty low-key and parking is free and plentiful. Even picking up and dropping off rental cars is relatively hassle-free at RIC, compared to other airports!

Hope you have a great trip. Let us help on anything else, if we can.

Thank you both for your replies.

We're doing a house exchange which also includes cars so we only need transport to/from the airport. We've looked at flights from London to PHF but the fares are approx £300+ more than if we fly into RIC.

Really looking forward to seeing this area of America, a first to the State of VA for us.

And you will be welcomed by the BRITISH flag flying from the Capitol in Colonial Williamsburg!
