    Woking BR to Premier Inn info please. 27th Nov 17 at 8:52 AM
    We would normally use rail/coach service to Heathrow from Weymouth, but this year, we are travelling at a different time of day which means an overnight stay at Premier Inn before flight.

    From Woking Station, we need to get to the Heathrow Longford T5 hotel 420 Bath Rd.

    I know there is a Bus service 423 from the premier to T5 (stand 6) every 15 mins, but don't know the route we will need to take from Woking Rail to Premier.

    If there isn't one, maybe we should use the coachlink service to Heathrow then bus back to Premier?.

    Hope this make sense and thanks in anticipation.

    I think your best bet is to get the railair bus and then use a local route 423 bus to the hotel. This is free as it is within the airport zone - don't pay for a Hoppa bus.

    In fairness to the Hoppa they take you direct to the front door so depending on the mobility, the weather at the time of travelling & whether there are any children involved, the cost may be worth it.

    And heavy luggage which a lot of people forget which may mean the hoppa is better than a local bus, and cheaper than a cab.

    423 drops off directly outside the PI and goes back to T5 from directly opposite.

    Plenty of room for luggage on 423 and you can pretty much roll it onboard from the kerb.

    You have each presented me with the information required, thanks you.

    My wife walks with a mobility walker and we will have cabin luggage only. (if I have my way), as we leave clothes at our daughters for each visit.

    I will write down all of the information presented and use. thanks again.

    The 701 calls at Terminal 5 , the bus stop is outside the arrivals hall on the ground floor, there is no need to go to the Central Bus Station to pick it up at all.

    As Alan states above, no need to go to CBS as 701 also stops at T5

    Thanks to each of you that have contributed with help. Don't want to play the paper card, but we are, and wife is disabled, so I try to be one jump ahead in planning. Sorted the rail bit out so I'm pleased. Odd to think that this time tomorrow we will be half way back to UK.

    Update, as told to me, the 423 red bus is free to and from Longford premier, but so is service 7. Just need to hail it otherwise it won stop. The 701 leaves from bay 9.

    Thanks again for your help.

    I appreciated your help, so it's only right that as you've given of your time, to recognise it.

    Old as we are with untold health issues, we've allowed ourselves one more trip May/June. Three anniversaries. Our 48th Wedding, our daughters' 12th (I think) and my 78th.

    You should see the pair of us waddling through these terminals. My wife with her walking aid, me trying not to use a walking stick, hearing aid and glasses. Constantly keeping an eye open for the loo. I bet those who take any notice of us smile to themselves.

    I recently went on holiday with a friend who needed "special assistance" which was very helpful (although you may already use this)

    We are offered it, but usually decline, however we do accept the facility which allows us to board early and avoid the queues at Passport Control ect.
