Heathrow Express has more than halved the prices on its weekday advanced tickets
Tue 05 Nov 2019
The dedicated express service between Heathrow Airport and London Paddington has announced its popular one-way advance £5.50 fares are now available every day of the week.
And this could benefit the five million passengers who travel Monday to Friday over the course of a typical year.
Heathrow Express’s range of new fixed date fares means passengers will be able to get weekday tickets for less than half the price of the previous cheapest weekday tickets– subject to availability.
Previously the cheapest weekday travel available was £12.50 when booked 90 days in advance rising to £16.50 for bookings up to 14 days before travel.
Now, customers booking in advance will see fares available for £5.50, £7.50, £10.00, £12.50, £15.00 or £16.50 depending on availability.
To take advantage of the new prices, travellers will need to book through the new Heathrow Express website and smartphone app which launched earlier this week.
The new website and app enables travellers to book tickets more quickly ‘than ever before’ in five additional languages.
And clear ticket and pricing options are provided to so customers can choose the cheapest fares.
Registered app users also receive personalised suggestions based on their location, in addition to booking history and automated next train times.
The transfer service, which has frozen fares since 2018 and continues to offer Kids go Free*, has designed the website and app to be easier to navigate.
And have added an ‘industry first’ ticket indicator function, so customers can keep track of used and unused tickets.
