I didn’t actually travel on the Heathrow Express as I only booked it by accident. But the quick and efficient manner that they dealt with my application for a refund was too class.

Such a great option to get into the City and if you're going to Paddington, it's the fastest way. I must say though, if you pre-purchase your ticket make sure the date you choose is right or at the least the ride is AFTER the date you bought it for, anything before (I was told) wouldn't be accepted.

On a rare occasion that i chose this service, it disappointed me big. First of all, it's heavily overpriced for what it is - national rail services will get you to Heathrow for half price and in near the same time (5mins extra). Selecting the Express service would suggest it's quick and reliable (?) but the truth is it is not. The train that I took to Paddington this morning was faulty and doors didn't work which meant they had to be opened/closed manually which took extra 15mins in one of the stations and made me miss my flight. I am super frustrated and wouldn't take this service again.

Arriving at Paddington the Heathrow Express is easy to find and access. Regular trains that are very comfortable, safe and clean. Great service

I knew it was expensive, but I was in a rush and was persuaded but the sign in the terminal it was only 12 minutes until the next train, so I got a ticket, rushed downstairs (eight minutes in total) only to find out it was actually another 21minutes until the next train, as such, it was no quicker door to doo than the tube - Whilst I can live with being robbed, I’m mainly offended that this is the first thing many tourists encounter on entering the UK - it really is a national embarrassment.
