Yet another option (I cannot vouch for how good it is compared to the others since I've never done any of them) is to take a RailAir coach to Reading (it appears that the journey time from T5 is 38 minutes) and then a train to Oxford (which I take very regularly and is usually 27 minutes). Trains to Oxford from Reading are frequent as it's on the line from ...

I strongly recommend the "Airline" bus service over the train. I live in Oxford and fly from Heathrow several times a year: I always use the bus and wouldn't even consider the train. It's cheaper: about £30 vs about £40 for a one-month return. It's faster: about 75-90 minutes for the bus, vs 100-150 minutes for the train via London. It runs 24 hours, ...

If you just want to get from Heathrow to Oxford - Don't take the train!

You either need to take a train into Paddington, change platforms, then head back out to Oxford (minimum journey time ...

It'll probably be cheaper than a train, too.

The Heathrow Express is free between Terminal 5 and Terminals 1,2,3, where you can do a same-platform transfer to Heathrow Connect which will take you to Hayes & Harlington. (Likewise, Heathrow Connect is free between Terminals 1,2,3 and Terminal 4, for people arriving on Heathrow Express). So you don't need to bother with the Underground for this ...

I do not exactly see the problem here. What are you asking? Is five hours enough for your cousin to go through UK immigration, transfer between the terminals, check in again and go through security? Sure, that's plenty. Yesterday someone asked whether 2:35 is enough and I went through and showed it's tight but 5 hours is aplenty. What other concerns are ...

While BA and VS does have an interline agreement it is not unheard of they refuse to check your luggage through. According to this forum thread they will interline outside of Oneworld (which VS is) only if you have a single ticket. In this worst case, if you are coming from outside of then UK then you need to go through immigration to get your luggage ...
