Complete rip off.. as the other reviews mention it is no different in any way to standard class. Theft in my opinion.

Arriving in London, we took an Uber. There was an accident on the highway, so he took us through the country. The back road to London is narrow, and very curvy, and they don't drive slow. Ugh! TAKE THE EXPRESS! We did on the way...More

The taxi delivers you to Victoria's Gatwick Express entrance. No fuss. No hassle.This service, while more expensive than some other options, is worth the price for comfort and peace of mind.

I don't believe this is worth the money and you can get to Gatwick just as easily from Victoria on a standard train in about 30 to 35 minutes. Generally off Platform 19 and for about £11 with a stop at East Croyden. Very easy!

We booked on line and went right from the plane to the train. There was a train already waiting.... so this transfer went very quick!!!! We were very impressed with how easy this was to find and use. We were at our station lickety-split!

Questions & Answers
Ask a question
Okay, so I have the dumbest questions probably ever asked, but I am not savvy when it comes to public transport, so please be kind. Planning to take the Gatwick Express from Gatwick to Victoria Station (however the slower train is also an option)... How do you find the Gatwick Express whilst in the airport? How do you distinguish between express trains and regular trains? How do you know which train to get on? Where are the signs? I assume there are digital boards stating tracks? Is there any confusion as to tracks and the direction trains are going? I ask this bc once in NYC I was directed to a track and once at the track there were 2 trains...one going uptown and one downtown..that is all it said. I had no idea at that time which direction was uptown and which was downtown, so I ended up on the wrong train. Are the trains going only toward Victoria or do they branch out all over England? Hence, not knowing which train to get on. If you purchase tickets online, once on the train, is there a conductor checking tickets? If you use an Oyster card, how do they know you paid? How do you know when you have arrived in Victoria? I understand there may be an intercom/speaker system on the train, but my experience is they are not easily heard if people are on the train and talking. I'm sorry these are such stupid questions. I just want to be prepared and I have looked online for answers and cannot find these details. Thanks.
