Net Safety Score
We’ve introduced a metric indicating how safe travellers feel when using our services during the COVID-19 pandemic. After every ride, we ask each traveller to leave a review.
20 minute gap between transfers
Following each ride, our drivers have at least 20 minutes to thoroughly clean the surfaces of the car and ventilate the cabin.
Regular Car Sanitisation
Our drivers thoroughly sanitise and disinfect cars according to Welcome Safety Protocol
When you book, you can request to have zero contact with the driver during the transfer with just one click. In this case, the driver won’t help you with your luggage or shake hands.
Sanitiser in every car
We provide hand sanitisers and hand wipes for all our travellers. Our drivers have their own sanitiser, which they use before and after every ride

Directions for your Gatwick airport transfer
London Gatwick Airport (LGW) is the second busiest airport in the United Kingdom after Heathrow. Your transfer from Gatwick airport to London city centre shouldn’t take you more than 60 minutes in light traffic. To begin your journey, your driver will travel along the M23 motorway and then take the exit towards Queenstown road. Based on the exact location of your hotel, your driver will then take the local roads to drop you off safely at your accommodation.

Gatwick airport taxi prices
Unfortunately, the local taxi drivers at Gatwick Airport don’t offer a set-rate fee for the journey into the city centre of London. Instead, your fare will be calculated using a taximeter based on the distance you travel or the amount of time your journey takes. The average cost for this journey is €68 (£63). Bear in mind that there may be additional fees for things such as; travelling late at night, vehicle type, or travelling during major holidays. To enjoy the peace of mind of a set-rate fee, we recommend you book your Gatwick airport transfer in advance with Welcome Pickups.
