Does cunard provide curtesy travel from Heathrow airport back to Southampton.
Where in somerset are you.
Second time the question's been asked this week. If you propose to use your car, then flying out and cruising back is simple. You just drive to Heathrow, park, fly. When your ship docks in Southampton you and your luggage are taken back to Heathrow (any terminal) by one of the transfer coaches organised by Cunard, dockside Also applies to other airports and to other cruise lines. But......... you're cruising out & flying back. Dohhh. The only way you can take advantage of Cunard's transfer is if your return flight to Heathrow happens to be on the same day that a Cunarder is sailing from Southampton - then you can join the "new" passengers on the coach to Southampton docks, where you had parked your car. Otherwise you're looking at a cross-country train (eg from Bristol, change at Salisbury) National Express or taxi. Chris.
Thank you for your response.
Sounds a little complicated, hey?! I think we're gonna have to 'train it'.
As previously asked...don't suppose you know the answer to part 2 of my query, with regards to distance and taxi fare from Brooklyn terminal (NYC), when you arrive aboard the Queen Mary 2??
Thanks anyway, for your time.
Sorry, have driven my coach on dozens of Cunard transfers to/from Southampton but not allowed to take it to New York. Chris.
We had a similar situation when we did Transatlantic on Ventura.....we left car in Southampton then got the train from Gatwick to Southampton stayed overnight before we drove back to Cornwall. Remember you will be jetlagged on arrival at Heathrow (I don't know what trains run from Heathrow to Southampton but the station is only a short taxi ride from the port) so it might be worth booking a night in Southampton before you drive home to Somerset.
Failing that you could do it all by train....from home to Southampton and then from Heathrow to home...
Thank you for your response...I think we're gonna have to do what we, and yourself have already suggested; travel by train.
Don't suppose you know the answer to the second part of my query, with regards to distance and taxi fare from Brooklyn terminal (NYC), when you arrive aboard the Queen Mary 2??
Thanks again for your assistance.
No sorry can't help on that one...
I am sure you will have a fabulous timeo on your crossing. you can easily get a taxi from brooklyn cruise terminal, it takes about 45 minutes in traffic to get to downtown new york and cost us about 40 dollars.
Thank you very much for taking the time in responding to part 2 of my original query...it helps knowing a little more before you arrive at your destination. Much appreciated.
