London’s Heathrow Express will increase same-day ‘turn up, pay and go’ fares for peak hour travel from Monday June 6.
One-way fares between Heathrow Airport and Paddington station will rise from £22 to £24 for Express Saver economy tickets bought online, from ticket machines or ticket offices on the day, if you travel between 7am and 10am.
The more exclusive Business First carriages (shown below) will also become slightly more expensive throughout the day, up £2 from £30 to £32.
Don’t forget that you can score a free upgrade from economy to first class by flashing your Gold-grade frequent flyer card from any Star Alliance airline.
Advance fares remain pegged at significantly lower prices if you can book anywhere from 14 to 90 days in advance of your trip – just nominate the day of your arrival and buy your ticket online or via the Heathrow Express smartphone app.
