Try Gatwick Airport Instead of Heathrow Airport

by Steve Dasseos on March 14, 2008

Just today I was speaking with a lady named Joan about travel insurance for an Oceania cruise her and her husband are taking in June 2009. In the course of the conversation Joan mentioned they had to fly to London Heathrow and then get a transfer to Dover. I suggested that they flying to Gatwick Airport instead because Gatwick Airport is south of London compared at Heathrow Airport which is west of London. By flying into Gatwick Airport they would be a lot closer to Dover and avoid London altogether.

London has two major airports: Heathrow and Gatwick. Gatwick’s big advantage is that it’s on a major British Railways line. This gives you easy access to anywhere British Rails goes, including direct services to London Victoria station. Gatwick Express trains run every 15 minutes from 05:20 to 00:50 and hourly overnight to London Victoria station. Journey time 30 minutes. Here’s a link to Gatwick Airport.

Heathrow Airport is the world�s busiest international airport, London Heathrow serves over 180 destinations in more than 90 countries. Therefore you might end up passing through Heathrow on the way to many other destinations. Here’s a link to Heathrow Airport.

I hope this makes sense. If you want the right travel insurance advice, call us at 1-888-407-3854 and we'll help you figure it all out.
