A cab ride would cost you about 50-60 pounds, if memory serves. I prefer to spend my money on nice hotels, bookstores, and restaurants!

When you're sitting on the Heathrow Express you really feel like you're being ripped off. This is UK Mafia, together with Gatwick and Standsted Express.

If there's 3 of you, it is cheaper to take a cabthat's a heck of a long cab ride from an airport to downtownPlaces like Boston, DC and Chicago, you can just jump on the subway right at the airport and be downtown in a few minutes
