National Express delivered exactly what they promised. The bus was clean, comortable and on time. The driver was helpful and polite and the whole experience took all the hassle out of driving to and parking at Heathrow, not to mention the costs in doing so yourself. A much more relaxing way of starting a holiday.
Never had worse experience! My coach has never arrived! And it was a Christmas Day! Apparently driver has missed the stop! However no-one has got in touch to let me know that I should stop waiting for a coach! Disaster
I did not realise that the national express does not leave from Reading coach station so once there was told I needed a new ticket- please highlight in red that this bus leaves from the middle of the highway (M4) and not from town centre.
The bus took a 45 minute break as there were not replacement driver which made the bus journey almost an hour late to Heathrow. It was close that I missed my flight. This could have been avoided. It is very bad practice!
