Regarding pricing Rome2Rio gives a similar price estimate of RMB200-240. But given that timing is crucial for you, you should probably arrange a driver beforehand who will then wait for you at the wall and take a nap while you hike around and then take you back into town. I find it unlikely that this would even cost that much more than twice your price ...

If convenience of journey is more important than time taken, you can get from Paddington to Stoke by train with one or two changes. One at Reading, and possibly one at Birmingham. There should also be step-free access between platforms at both stations. Depending on timetable, it could take as little as half an hour longer, or possibly up to about 1.5 ...

I did a similar transfer last fall, with a 4 year old and 2.5 year old. It's entirely possible, if you are careful about how you navigate the station to avoid steps. Highly recommend the step free tube guide for that - we got caught once with steps when we didn't, and we won't do that again! Black cabs are perfectly usable with kids. They don't ...

(If cost is not an issue) You can get a pre-booked taxi/private hire to take you from Heathrow, straight to Stoke-on-Trent. As mentioned in comments your best bet is to book a firm/individual who resides in Stoke as this will be cheaper (you may need to pay a deposit or even the whole amount up front) Do not just jump in a black cab outside Heathrow and ask ...

Can you fly to Birmingham instead of London? There is a direct train service (hourly) from Birmingham International to Stoke-on-Trent, 75 minute journey. That train will be considerably cheaper than Heathrow express plus a train from Euston. Just make sure you don't make the mistake that wasd recently reported and confuse Birmingham Alabama with Birmingham ...

There is a direct number 205 bus from Paddington to Euston. Ordinarily it goes down the side of Paddington (platform 1 side) and then along the front of the station. It calls into the bus station that's adjacent to the concourse at Euston. It takes 22 minutes for the journey, and buses are every 6-10 mins during the day, less frequent early and late. The ...

I'm a Londoner with kids of a similar age. Info you might find useful: I've never seen a black cab with a child seat - I suspect there are none. Two of the standard seats face backwards though so slightly safer. If you are going to use the Heathrow Express then taxi is the easiest option from Paddington. Uber is cheaper but still no child seats (and no ...

I would be inclined to take the tube to Euston Square - it hasn't been mentioned yet, but it is possible to exit Euston Square station on the north side and take the short walk to Euston station without crossing any roads (indeed, you can use the station as an underpass if you need to cross the road). There are a couple of short flights of stairs involved (...

As you are aiming to get to Stoke-on-Trent, you can take a bus from Heathrow to Watford Junction, then take the train. The train may be cheaper and you avoid the center of London. Or take the Tube directly from Heathrow to Euston, as you are getting on at the end of the line you should get a seat.

If your purpose is to get from Heathrow Airport to Stoke-on-Trent with as little hassle as possible, I would consider flying to Manchester and then take the direct bus from Manchester Airport to Stoke-on-Trent. British Airways operates about 8 flights a day from Heathrow to Manchester and there are seven daily buses from Manchester Airport to Stoke-on-...

Having traveled from Heathrow towards London by tube many times, my first reaction was: Why to travel by train as well as tube. Starting at the airport you will be one of the first in the tube and you will have an easy time to find seats. Look on the transport for London site for the best travel options on the day and time you need to travel, set it to '...

Crossing into the West Bank itself is simply a matter of continuing on whatever road you were already on and passing a check point, (though usually they are only checking anyone going the other way) and it's perfectly doable with an Israeli taxi, or any one else willing to take you there for that matter. Furthermore, it's just as doable to procede from ...

Uber is now available in Rio, so you can use them instead. Receipts are automatically sent out by email and are also available online for future downloading:

According to Uber's fare estimator, the ride shouldn't cost more than 30PLN: If you haven't registered for Uber yet, you can use a promo code to get a free 50PLN ride.

It depends from where exactly in the centre and how much the given taxi charges per kilometre. To give you some background: all the taxis have a table with rates on their side window. Normal daytime rates vary between PLN 1.4 - 2.4 per kilometre, and there is some set multiplier for night rates (the same for all the taxis). Hotel taxis and taxis not in one ...
