Looking at the cheapest way to get from Swindon to Heathrow T5.

Train from Swindon to Heathrow (via Paddington) is around 47 quid.

Coach from Swindon to Heathrow is around 30 but would rather stick with the train.

I've figured out that i can do Swindon to Reading  then Reading to Hayes and Harlington and onto Heathrow for around 32. Has anyone done this trip? Is it a pain the arse and actually worth saving 15?

Why not drive? So much easier.

This is true but, i'm going out for work midweek and then my wife is meeting me on the Friday so we have a weekend in Paris and she will be driving the car to Heathrow.

If it gets you there a bit earlier then you could take a book  Smiley
If it's for work aren't they paying for it anyway?

We're still weighing up who's going to drive and who will get the train/bus out of me the wife.

If only these auto drive cars were a bit more advanced, you could drive to Heathrow and the car would drive itself back.... sorted.

Yep I'd be claiming the train on expenses if it was me.

Swindon - Reading, Reading - Feltham, Bus. Not much fun, but should be cheap.
