Detroit to London to Croatia

Jump to last reply

Hi there and thank you for considering to help me with my confusion!

My husband and I are going to a wedding in London at the end of this month. We originally were going to spend two weeks in London but our best friends convinced us to take a Croatian vacation with them during those two weeks.

Here is our current plan:
8/25 - 8/27 stay in London
8/27 - 8/31 stay in Croatia
8/31 - 9/4 stay in London

Husband and I would like to move our flight to Dubrovnik up a day or two to explore Croatia more.

Here is the new, proposed plan:
8/25 - 6:25 am - Land in Heathrow (Delta Airlines)
Take a shuttle/uber/car to Gatwick
9:05 am - Flight from Gatwick to Dubrovnik (British Airways)

Questions:
1.) I am confused about Customs vs. Passport control... From your experience how long does this process usually take?
2.) Instead of getting our checked bags at Heathrow, can we tell Delta that our final destination is Croatia and they will send them there, on a different flight?
3.) Is uber the best/fastest way to get from airport to airport?

Thank you SO much for reading and for any insight you can provide.

-Lindsay
