Heathrow to Luton - Inter-Airport direct coach service

Heathrow to Luton & Luton to Heathrow - timetables, fares & online booking


Only National Express provides a direct inter airport coach service from Heathrow to Luton. There is no other coach operator, which offers similar shuttle service between these airports or a direct train transfer from Heathrow to Luton. National Express offers one pair every hour in each direction. Coaches that serve this route are not intended to serve the route from Heathrow to Luton only, the coaches run on larger distances and both airports are only intermediate stops. Most of the services begin their journey at one of the UKs’ cities or towns, however, on the route between Heathrow and Luton they stop at these stops (see table below). The National Express Bus/Coach Shuttle mostly reaches to all terminals at both airports. Travelling between airports with National Express takes 60 to 90 minutes.

Travel insurance

The best way to protect against unexpected accidents is to buy travel insurance. In my opinion, that the journey was stress-free, you should never travel without travel insurance. You can insure your journey with National Express, it’s possible directly on the National Express website, during ticket purchase.
You can also insure individual with another insurer. This will be the insurance that will apply during the journey and while in a foreign country. The insurance should cover: loss of cash and goods, cancellation of travel and the main treatment abroad. If you travel several times a year and want to save money, you may want to buy an annual insurance policy. Click here to buy an insurance.
